Levante vs Eibar
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Saturday, 21 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Estadi Ciutat de València (Valencia).
Eibar failed to capitalize on their opportunity to begin against two newly-promoted squads. They could easily have posted six points on the board, but instead, are still winless, and are placed 19th in a table of 20.
The team has managed just a single point so far, with them losing three of the four total fixtures, and drawing the remaining one. And on top of that, they are on the road for this subsequent tie, which in all probability will pile on the pressure.
Opponents Levante could take advantage of this situation, and try for an easy three points. If not for their loss against Real Madrid, that too which hinged on an injury-time save from Thibaut Courtois at the Bernabeu, the Frogs would have held a spot in the European zone of the table.
With the toppers beginning their European competition soon, points are expected to be dropped, and Paco Lopez’s men could make hay while the sun shines.
Levante vs Eibar Head-to-head (h2h)
- Nine of the former ten wins went to the sides with home advantage.
- Seven of the previous eight clashes had goals from both teams.
- The only win that Eibar had posted at this venue in the last two decades. It came in 2005, and in a CDR tie as well.
- The hosts scored twice or more in the prior five meetings at this stadium.
Levante vs Eibar Prediction
Disregarding a close loss against the Los Blancos, the Frogs have been quite on a roll. And especially so once their home ties go under the microscope. They were unbeaten in 12 of their former 14 appearances in front of the home crowd and is on a 100% winning streak in such ties this season.
They have also managed to score twice or more in their previous eight home fixtures on the trot, whereas their counterparts were winless in 17 of their prior 18 road trips.
Moreover, Eibar is totally winless this whole season, and with them slowed down with an away handicap, chances are more for the other side to emerge victoriously, whoever it may be, let alone a squad in form, like that of the Frogs.
Finally, h2h clashes too paint a picture that the hosts hold all the cards. (Nine of the prior ten h2h wins had been recorded by the squads at home).
Consequentially, our top pick is obviously a win for Levante.
