Espanyol vs Levante
Spanish La Liga
Date: 13th October 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: RCDE Stadium.
The timing for the international break was ideal for Levante who ruined the promising kick off to the new campaign in the top flight of the Spanish football with back-to-back comprehensive defeats to the likes of Real Betis and Deportivo Alaves.
Les Granotes will be trying to recover this Friday when they are about to tackle Espanyol at RCDE Stadium in Cornella in the first game of the eighth round.
RCDE Stadium is not the perfect place for trying to get your campaign back on track since Los Periquitos have been pretty inspired up front in last two games in front of their fans.
Quique Sanchez Flores’ side has been especially inspired in the previous home outing which saw them score four past Deportivo la Coruna.
The star man Gerard Moreno bagged a brace and the clash with the struggling defense of Levante’s should give him plenty of space to add to his three-goal tally on Friday.
It’s pretty hard to explain such a drop in Levante’s form after a super strong start to the campaign in the elite.
The 4-0 loss to Los Beticos came literally out of nowhere as the team has previously notched three goals in a commanding home win over the likes of Real Sociedad.
Moreover, the crisis was confirmed with the last round’s home defeat to the rock-bottomed Deportivo Alaves (their first win of the season).
Espanyol vs Levante: Head to head
Levante’s potential victory would set the head to head stats all square at seven wins, draws and losses for each of the sides.
Interestingly, each of previous six H2H meetings between the two teams saw the BTTS option “come in”.
Espanyol vs Levante: Prediction
Los Periquitos have a nice opportunity to back up the fine form at RCDE Stadium by taking advantage of Levante’s obvious crisis.
As we discussed above, Gerard Moreno is the top option for the anytime goalscorer at the odds of 6/5.
