Leganes vs Levante
Two teams on equal points meet each other at Butarque stadium. Both sides seem to have enough points reserved to hover above the relegation zone although they’ve found their success this season in very different ways. Despite their recent solid form, Leganes is without a win in their last two league games. However, they have managed to turn Butarque into a real fortress and have recorded some of their best results at home. They are unbeaten in their last ten La Liga home games. Although defeated by Real Madrid at home, visiting Levante was victorious in their previous away match 4-1 over Celta Vigo. Still, their recent form on the road has been quite poor. They are primarily a counter-attacking side but with defensive vulnerabilities that Leganes will be looking to exploit.
- Four of Leganes’ last five matches featured over 2.5 total goals
- Three of Leganes’ last five matches saw both teams score.
Despite the bad start of the season, Leganes is playing very well now. On the opposite side, across last ten top-flight away matches, Levante has won just three. Although their goalscoring record over that span does indicate that there could be excitement at both ends here.
Prediction: Over 2 Goals ( Asian lines) @ 1.60
