Levante vs Espanyol – Copa del Rey : In one of the matches that opens up this Thursday of matches in Spain
Counting towards the Copa del Rey’s quarter-finals, the local side Levante and the visiting side Espanyol face off in Levante, at the Ciudad de Valencia stadium,
on a match between two teams that have already faced each other twice this season, with the matches finishing 0-0 in the league and Levante winning in Barcelona on the 1st leg of this Copa del Rey’s tie.
The home side is making a campaign below what they would certainly like so far, being on a fragile position in La Liga,
being very close to the relegation zone of the competition, although on the Copa del Rey they are making a good campaign so far,
having good chances of advancing on the competition, since they are coming off a win against their opponents in this match, on the 1st leg.
The team is coming off a relatively positive streak of results, only having lost 1 of their last 4 matches, and that loss being against the current league leaders Barcelona.
As for Espanyol, they are making a campaign that can’t be compared with the best results they achieved on the season, being on the bottom half of the league table in La Liga but still having good chances to advance in this competition,
despite the loss suffered on the 1st leg. The team is coming off a relatively positive streak of results, only getting 1 win on their last 4 matches, exactly against Levante.
Levante vs Espanyol– Betting Tip and Prediction:
On a match that will decide a lot and with Levante having the advantage, this will be a very tough match for an Espanyol that isn’t one of the highest scoring teams in Spain, at all,
but that presents a very solid defensive record. This way, I believe we will have a low-scoring affair.
