Levante vs Real Betis
Spain – La Liga
Date: Monday, 26 February 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Ciudad de Valencia (Valencia).
The Frogs fell right on the brink of the drop zone after claiming just two points in last eight league matches. Can Juan Muniz and his men arrest such slump on Monday evening when they host Real Betis in the last game of the Matchday at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia?
Muniz has lots of headaches caused by the lack of meticulo8usness in his team’s defensive line which has been particularly easy to break down in the most recent set of fixtures. Levante have shipped at least two goals in each of last five league outings and as many as six in back-to-back losses to Valencia and Real Sociedad.
The hosts will thus come into the game in a poor form which could allow Los Beticos to return on the winning ways after falling 3-5 to the defending champions Real Madrid in the previous round. Quique Setien’s side has generally been playing hot and cold ever since the start of the campaign. The defensive line is the weaker part of the team as Betis have the third worst defensive record with 50 conceded goals in 24 league matches.
The man to look after is Sergio Leon who has become team’s top scorer when he netted one of team’s three goals in the mentioned loss to Real Madrid last weekend.
Levante vs Real Betis: Head-to-head
Betis have been super dominant in the most recent head to head meetings with Levante.
Los Beticos have won four on the bounce against the Frogs keeping a clean sheet in all of last three H2H ties.
Levante have suffered a true disaster losing 4-0 at Estadio Benito Villamarin in late-September last year.
Levante vs Real Betis: Prediction
Setien’s men have been enjoying a fine form on travels recently having won three of last four league ties on the road.
This, combined with Levante’s disastrous spell of form, increases the value of the 2.90 odds offered for the away win pick here.
Also, Sergio Leon should have plenty of space to keep his hot run of form going and find the back of the net past the struggling defense of Levante’s here.
