Espanyol vs Levante – La Liga : Espanyol sits in 14th place of La Liga at the moment…
With 8 points conquered so far, thanks to 2 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses. That’s a low position on the league table for a team who has their quality.
On the 7 matches played so far, the team has already faced some great teams as well, like Barcelona and Real Madrid,
and they have also had two difficult trips to Sevilla and Villareal, not being able to win any of these 4 matches, but with the team showing good football.
The team was already showing some quality last season but their problem is always finishing. The team is able to produce well but they struggle to score.
This season, they already have a negative goal record but the 4-1 win at home over Deport has allowed them to have an average of 1 goal scored per match.
Levante has started this new season in full speed, since they haven’t lost any of the first 5 matches of the season, with not even Real Madrid being able to break their defensive barrier in Valencia.
After that good streak, their form dropped by losing 4-0 against Bétis and they are now coming into this match after a home loss that confirmed the end of their good form,
when they lost 0-2 against Alavés, who has a weaker team this season than the one they had last season.
Espanyol vs Levante – Betting Tip and Prediction:
These teams look like two teams who will switch positions. On one hand, I expect an Espanyol more confident to grow.
They haven’t faltered on the more important matches, that’s true, but they lost some points on the tougher matches,
and I believe we will see them rise on the league table when they start facing these lower quality sides, especially when they face them at home.
Levante doesn’t have a bad team but their initial fire is gone and when they don’t have the same intensity, their weaknesses become more evident, and I think that this season they have more problems defensively.
I believe that Espanyol will have the initiative playing at home and will end up winning this match.
