Real Betis vs Levante
Spanish La Liga
Date: Monday, 25th September 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarin
For the closing match of the 6th round of Spanish Primera Division, we’re to see Real Betis and Levante squaring off at Estadio Benito Villamarin.
The greatest surprise of the previous round was sprung exactly by the hosts in this fixture. Their visit to Madrid brought immense joy to Real Betis, and a terrible disappointment to Real Madrid and all the fans – and bettors, let’s not forget about them – who justly believed in their victory.
Betis put up a more than strong resistance, as they kept Real Madrid from scoring the entire 90 minutes. Their defensive line remained unbroken, and moments before the blowing of the whistle, Sanabria scored the goal for the win.
Their win itself is not the only thing that’s been talked about. They went an extra mile, as they succeeded in ending Real Madrid’s incredible streak of 73 matches in which they scored. With this third win, they now have 9 points and are positioned at the top half of the league table.
Levante have the same number of points as their upcoming hosts, but unlike them, they still haven’t been defeated. Their points come from the three draws and two wins. They’ve scored in every match so far, but their duels only twice ended with three or more goals scored in total.
One of those duels was at home against Real Sociedad in the previous round. It was a tough duel, but they managed to score as much as 3 goals and come out as winners with clean sheets.
Real Betis vs Levante: Head to head
Least often their duels ended with a draw. As far as the wins are concerned, Real Betis have a slight advantage with 8 wins, as opposed to Levante’s 6. They haven’t met since season 2015/2016 of the Primera Division, when Real Betis won in both legs, both times with a narrow 1-0.
Real Betis vs Levante: Prediction
Levante have taken the privilege to come back to the Spanish elite more than seriously. It’s a great deal remaining undefeated when your opponents are Real Madrid and Valencia, and taking the win against Villarreal.
The odds are certainly not in their favour, but we still believe they won’t be defeated in this match either. Real Betis accomplished in the previous round something that happens once in a blue moon, and we think they will be able to score, but we don’t think they will come out as winners.
