Levante vs Real Sociedad
Spanish La Liga
Date: Friday, 9 November 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ciudad de Valencia (Valencia).
Levante were just moments away from their fifth win on the bounce in La Liga last weekend when they travelled to Estadio de la Ceramica to take on Villarreal. They conceded an equalizer at the death of the game as Villarreal’s substitute Alfonso Pedraza notched a goal in the third minute of added time to deny the Frogs.
Nonetheless, the team led by Paco Lopez still have the momentum on their side as they have been enjoying a phenomenal form in the last couple of months.
The aforementioned thread of five subsequent victories climbed them up to the seventh place in the Primera Division ladder. The team was very tough to break down of late. The meticulousness at the back inspired wins over Alaves, Getafe, Real Madrid and Leganes.
The Frogs allowed just three goals in last five league outings. Can they keep such form going on Friday evening against Real Sociedad in the first match of the 12th round?
Levante vs Real Sociedad: Head-to-head
Levante lead the head to head tie by two wins coming into their 23rd meeting with the Basques.
Teams took two convincing 3-0 wins in front of the home fans when they met each other in the previous term of La Liga.
Three or more goals were seen in four of last five head to head affairs.
The Frogs won 7, drew 2 and lost 2 of 11 home outings against Txuri-Urdinak.
Levante vs Real Sociedad: Prediction
Paco Lopez’s side should really be in position to maintain their fine defensive record when Sociedad come to visit Estadio Ciudad de Valencia. The visitors have been struggling for goals recently. They failed to find the back of the net in last three Primera Division fixtures.
To be fair, Sociedad did keep things tight at the other end, allowing just two goals in the process (in a 2-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano).
The Under 2.5 goals FT is the stand-out bet here and you can go for it at 1.90 odds. The value is certainly with the hosts who are worth backing not to lose at 1.57.
