Football Bet of the Day: Levante look leaky in La Liga

The Friday-night game from Spain could produce goals for everyone, says Tobias Gourlay

In Slovenia yesterday, Koper coped better than we expected with Mura. The hosts took an early lead and hung on for a 1-0 win that means a loss on our BTTS bet.

We’re looking to bounce back in Spain. The Friday-night game in La Liga brings 10th-placed Athletic Bilbao to eighth-placed Levante and we fancy both teams can get on the score-sheet, just like they have in 5/7 Liga meetings since Levante came back up to the top flight in 2017.

Both teams have also scored in 10 of Levante’s last 12 Liga games home and away. At the Ciutat de Valencia the Frogs have seen both nets ripple in 9/11. Lowly Getafe are the only visitors they’ve shut out in that run.

Athletic have a new coach, Marcelino, who guided them to a 4-0 win at Cadiz on their last road trip. The Basques have now scored in seven straight Liga away games, a run that includes trips to Barcelona and Real Madrid. Both teams to score has been the right bet in 6/7 of those matches and it’s the bet we’re making on this one.
