Reason For Espanyol vs Levante Predictions

  • Levante have won only three of their 15 away matches in La Liga.
  • Both teams have scored in only three of Espanyol’s last seven assignments in the league.
  • Each of Espanyol’s last four games have featured under 2.5 goals.

Espanyol on course for great escape

Espanyol have not looked like a side in the thick of a relegation battle since they have returned to action in La Liga and Abelardo’s men now have a good shot at staving off the drop.

The club from Barcelona moved off the bottom of the standings for the first time since December following their draw away to highflyers Getafe last time out.

They were under the cosh for most of that game but their defensive discipline earned them a goalless draw – a second successive clean sheet after their 2-0 win over Alaves last week, meaning they have taken four points from two matches since the restart.

They have been particularly difficult to break down at the RCDE Stadium recently and are unbeaten in their last six league assignments at home.

They have held Barcelona, Athletic Bilbao and Atletico Madrid to draws as part of that run and have looked rejuvenated since January, having invested heavily in the winter window.

January additions give Espanyol newfound confidence

Espanyol added Raul de Tomas, Leandro Cabrera and Adri Embarba to their ranks for around €40 million in January and the additions appear to have given the squad the motivation they needed.

And punters should anticipate another positive result for the Catalan side against Levante, who are winless in their previous four encounters.

They took an impressive point off Sevilla last time out but that was on home soil, albeit at the 3,000 capacity Estadio Camilo Cano, and they have been typically poor on their travels.

No La Liga team have lost more away matches than Levante (11) this season, while their tally of 29 goals conceded in their 15 matches on the road is also among the highest in the division.

Levante over-reliant on talismanic Roger

Beyond 11-goal Roger, however, they are short of quality in the final third and an Espanyol side who are improving at the back could record a third successive clean sheet.

Each of Espanyol’s last four contests have featured under 2.5 goals and, despite their poor season, three of their last four wins have been to nil.

It has been at the other end where Espanyol have had their problems, losing key striker Borja Iglesias to Real Betis last summer, but they have had more about them in the final third since reinforcing in January.

The match result prediction is a straight Espanyol win, with Levante having lost away to the likes of Eibar and Osasuna since the turn of the year.

But punters looking for a correct score prediction should anticipated a low-scoring contest and 1-0 could be the way to go. 

Four of Levante’s last five matches have also featured under 2.5 goals and that was the scoreline when Espanyol won the reverse fixture in October, which was only their second triumph of the season at the time.
