Our Prediction:

Real Madrid will win

Real Madrid – Levante Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 07:00

The nickname of Levante UD is Las Granotes which literally means the frogs. The Valencia derby is one of the most hectic football games in the region. The club host its home games in the Ciutat de Valencia Stadium which holds a capacity of 26 000 seats. The club colors of Levante are blue and red. Levante Union Deportiva is a Spanish football club from the city Valencia and is playing in the highest Spanish football division since 2010. The club is the second biggest of Valencia after the very known football club Valencia CF.

With Real conceding in their last seven La Liga outings and in five of their last six at the Bernabeu, we feel its best to avoid the match betting here in favour of backing both teams to score. Thats been the outcome in the last five league meetings between the pair and looks a great wager at around 4/6.

He moved to Southamptons football academy in 1999 and he made a great progress during his spell with the Saints. Gareth Bale is a Welsh footballer who plays for Real Madrid as a winger. Bailo was born in Cardiff on 16 July, 1989 and, as expected, he played for his home-town club Cardiff Civil Service at the start of his youth career.

Real Madrid vs Levante Match Preview

Levante are having a good season overall but they still have La Ligas joint worst defensive record with 1.79 goals per game conceded. Weve certainly got plenty of reason to expect goals in this one. Theyve actually conceded more at home than they have away so there should be plenty of space for Reals front-line to exploit. 73% of Levante home matches this term have produced over 2.5 goals, while 45% have produced 4 or more.

These sides met at the Bernabeu early on last season with Levante surprise 2-1 winners in one of the first signs that all was not well with Los Blancos. They are a dangerous counter-attacking team on their day but they have struggled for any kind of consistency on the road since that famous victory. Real Madrid will be targeting revenge here having failed to win either of their last two home games against the Valencia club.

The home team have picked up just two points from their last two games in a running and have been hit hard by injury woes to key talismans, including new summer recruit Eden Hazard. Zizous men are still a work in progress in all honesty and have not been able to put in a match-winning worth performance since their opener.

Last time out, Madrid struggled for large parts of the game at Villarreal, and only managed to escape Estadio de la Ceramica with a 2-2 draw thanks to a Gareth Bale equaliser late in the piece the second goal of a double salvo for the Welshman. Bale turned in another fine display for Los Merengues in Valencia; however a late red card means he will miss out on this Saturdays action.

Predicted Lineups

Los Blancos should at least to be able to finally hand a competitive debut to Eden Hazard. Real didnt miss him too much in Vigo on the opening weekend but theyve been held to draws in their last two matches and Zinedine Zidane will be expecting his troops to step it up a gear here. The Belgians absence has meant Real have had to cope without the one player they signed in the summer that will almost certainly improve their starting eleven this term.

Additionally, only two of the last six goals for Los Blancos have come in the first half. Taking into account that all four of Levantes goals so far have also come in the latter forty-five minutes of the game, expect both the teams to be a lot more clinical in the second half and to score a total of two goals or more post the restart.

Los Levantinos, on the other hand, have been playing above expectations at the start of the season as they defeated both Villarreal and Real Valladolid at home ground, but given their poor away record in the Spanish top flight, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Zinedine Zidanes men. Karim Benzema will, as always, lead the line for the Spanish giants against Levante.

This will be a perfect game, to bounce back and turn their season around. On the other side, Levante has lost its opener against Alaves. They have 2 draws in a row now. After that, they have won 2 games in a row, while scoring two goals in each one. In the last 13 matches between them, only twice was scored 2 goals or less. An explosion of goals is something we see quite a lot on their games. That is the style, that Real Madrid is known for. By looking at all of this, Real Madrid is having their ups and downs, but should win this game in front of their home fans. That was shown in the first round of this years La Liga, where Real Madrid won 3:1 against Celta Vigo, despite only 3 shots on target for the hosts. Both of these teams had a changeable preseason, especially Real Madrid, as we arent used to that. Real Madrid is dominating their Head-to-Head matches with only 3 defeats from 20 games in recent history. They have to score a lot of goals, because their offense is their main thing.

The hosts though are hoping to complete a historic league double over Los Blancos. They head to Levante this Sunday hoping to respond ahead of a crunch week with two clasicos in the space of four days. Real Madrids bid to get back into the title race came to a shuddering halt last weekend with a shock home defeat.
