Levante vs Lugo
Spanish Copa del Rey
Date: Thursday, 6 December 2018
Kick-Off at 11:00 UK / 12:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ciudad de Valencia (Valencia).
Levante have a nice opportunity to match the previous term success when they reached the last 16 round of Copa del Rey. The Frogs are set to host the second tier outfit Lugo in the second leg of their R32 tie on Thursday morning at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia. They have a positive 1-1 draw from the first leg played in late-October at Estadio Anxo Carro. Lugo opened up the scoring through Cristian 11 minutes into the game back then, but Borja Mayoral made it all square eight minutes after the interval.
The hosts will head into this in the highest of spirits following a demolishing 3-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao on Monday. Chema, Campana and Roger Marti were on the scoreline for the Frogs. The team led by Paco Lopez thus ended a streak of four straight games without a victory across competitions. They sit sky-high 6th in La Liga ladder after 14 rounds of the competition.
Levante vs Lugo: Head-to-head
The H2H stats is all tied at one win, draw and loss for each of the two teams coming into their fourth encounter.
None of past three head to head affairs saw three or more goals scored.
These two likes battled it out together in Segunda Division 2016/17 campaign when they both snatched a narrow 1-0 win on the home court.
Levante vs Lugo: Prediction
Lugo have been dreadful travellers of late in Segunda and we can hardly see them pulling off an upset here at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia. They are winless in past five away fixtures and they failed to find the back of the net in four previous games on the road.
The home win is a banker if we know that Levante won three of past four matches in the top flight of the Spanish football. Since the visitors really struggled for goals on travels lately, we will alternatively back the Frogs to keep a clean sheet at the evens odds.
Levante vs Lugo: Bet Tips
Levante to win @ 1.40 (2/5)
Levante to keep a clean sheet @ 2.00 (1/1).
