Levante vs Espanyol
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 21 April 2019
Kick-Off 11:00 UK / 12:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ciudad de Valencia (Valencia).
Espanyol made a massive step towards securing the new elite class campaign via two separate 2-1 wins over Girona and Deportivo Alaves in past two rounds. The Budgerigars are now ten points away from the red zone with six games left to play. They will thus travel to Valencia for the clash with bottom-half rivals Levante without pressure.
The same can’t be said for the hosts who significantly complicated their situation down in the relegation scrap with a series of eighth league games without a victory. The Frogs are now just two points above the danger area and they will be desperate to finally clinch a three-pointer here against Espanyol.
Levante vs Espanyol: Head-to-head
Espanyol were more successful in recent head to head history with the Frogs.
They won two and drew one of past three H2H encounters against Levante.
Just one of last five head to head meetings between these two outfits produced three or more goals.
Levante, however, won five, drew five and lost only two of twelve home clashes against the Budgerigars.
Levante vs Espanyol: Prediction
The team led by Paco Lopez will rely heavily on this tradition in home clashes against Espanyol. The main problem for the Spanish manager was the lack of meticulousness in the defensive line as his squad were too easy to break down in recent weeks.
The Frogs allowed at least two goals in each of last four league outings. The streak includes last weekend’s 3-1 loss to city rivals Valencia at Estadio de Mestalla. Levante are capable of producing in the final third, though, and we would not be surprised to see an end of the low-scoring trend in latest H2H affairs between the two likes.
Each of last three games Espanyol played in the league also saw goals scored at both ends. You can back the Over 2.5 goals FT pick at the odds of 1.66. We will go for somewhat higher 1.90 odds and back hosts to net two or more goals on the day.
