Our Prediction:

Levante will win

Levante – Eibar Match Prediction | 22-09-2019 10:00

Their coach Jose Mendilibar will have to make some changes in the lineup, but they are capable of mixing their players. They had a changeable form in the preseason, finishing the games in many different ways. They have some trouble with injuries, as they will be playing without Burgos and Valdes Diaz. This game will be a perfect opportunity to change the direction in which this season is going. They have started this season in a terrible fashion though, so their fans are expecting better games in the near future.

I looked at their recent performances and their styles of play, as well as other factors while I was crafting my selection. If we take everything we said, it points to a home victory for Levante with over 2.5 goals scored. Both of these teams started this season differently, so this game is not easy to predict with many circumstances involved.

Highlighted Player (Coke):

The omens dont look particularly good. They were beaten 2-1 by fellow early strugglers Espanyol despite taking the lead in that game through Ivan Ramis. Theyve only chalked up one point from their four matches. While they did have to play all their opening three games away from home due renovations at Ipurua, there were no home comforts to be found last time out.

Eibar is known for playing attractive offensive football. Eibar is also known as the Armaginak or the Armeros which literally means the Gunners. Former Eibar players with an impressive career are: David Silva, Xabi Alonso, Manuel Almunia and Ricardo Varela. The club colors of Eibar are blue and red. Eibars performance in the Primera Division so far is impressive.

This game will be played on September 21st, at the Estadi Ciutat de Valencia in Valencia, Spain. In this match preview, I will try to provide the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on my analysis of these two teams. Levante vs Eibar prediction comes ahead of the Spanish La Liga fifth-round clash between the two. These two teams have a lot of history, so a fun match is coming.

Levante vs Eibar Stats

Despite producing a fine display against Espanyol at the weekend, Eibar eventually suffered a 2-1 loss to the Catalan outfit in front home fans. The Basques outfit are after their first win of the season, but given Levantes performance in a 3-2 loss to Real Madrid at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, the visitors should be happy with one point from the match. Los Armeros are eager to make amends for the defeat and we predict that they are going to fight tooth and nail in Saturdays football match against Levante.

Roger Marti and Borja Mayoral should lead the line but Eibar have a worry over their striker Sergi Enrich which could push Jos Luis Mendilibar into a change. Levante should revert to playing either 4-4-2 or 4-3-3 having utilised five at the back last weekend with limited success. These sides played out two entertaining contests last term so this could be a decent one for the neutrals.

Los Armeros suffered a shocking 2-1 loss to Real Valladolid in front of home fans in their last league match and seeing that their away record is anything but good, we are tempted to put our money on los Levantinos. Levante will be aiming to put an end to their four-game winless run in La Liga when they host Eibar at their Estadio Ciudad de Valencia on Matchday 29. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a thrilling 4-4 draw and yet another high-scoring affair is on the horizon. You should bear in mind that Levante recorded a hard-fought 2-1 win over Eibar in their last meeting at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia. Levante want to move away from the danger zone in the La Liga standings, but this game will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.

Prediction Levante-Eibar: 1x (Odd 1.69)

They will fancy their chances of doing just that against an Eibar side that has got off to quite a slow start. The Basques are very much established at this level now but defeat here would really start to raise a few questions as to whether this might be the season in which they are dragged into a relegation scrap. Saturdays clash from Valencia sees Levante aiming to make it 3 wins from 3 at home this season.

If you look at their Head-To-Head matches, the first thing you see is probably the last 4 consecutive matches, where we saw a combined number of 19 goals scored, or almost 5 per game on average. They have only one single point from four games played, so relegation is looking like a possibility for this season. Eibars season is disastrous right now. They will try to turn things around in this game. As it was already said, these two teams have played a lot of games in their recent history.

The Spanish footballer, who is capable of playing as both full back and a winger, won three UEFA Europa League trophies with los Sevillanos (2014, 2015, 2016) and he made it to the Spanish Cup final in the 2015/2016 season with the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan outfit. After spending five years in Andalusia, Coke signed a three-year contract with Schalke on 31 July, 2016 for a fee of 5 million. Sevilla, though, failed to make life difficult for Barcelona in the title game.

Goal Margins

Confidence is clearly flowing through Paco Lopez charges in front of their own supporters and they look a cracking bet at odds-against this Saturday to maintain their 100% home record this season especially after such a resolute performance against Madrid last time out. Their opponents recent woes strengthen the case made for a Levante victory in this clash and were recommending a two point stake on the hosts.

Trailing 3-0 at Half-Time, the game looked dead but Paco Lopezs side pulled a couple of goals back and came very close to a leveller in Stoppage Time with Thibaut Courtois sparing the home teams blushes in the end. Levante meanwhile almost pulled off one of the great La Liga comebacks at the Bernabeu. Theyll be hoping to build on home victories over Villarreal and Real Valladolid here.
