Levante vs Deportivo La Coruna Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Levante were able to open the 2017-18 campaign with a 1-0 win over Villarreal. Despite coming up against a team that has qualified for the Europa League, Levante pushed for a win and were able to get the crucial goal in the 88th minute. José Luis Morales scored from the spot to give Levante a huge victory. Deportivo La Coruna suffered a 3-0 defeat at home to Real Madrid in the opening weekend. Gareth Bale opened the scoring in the 20th minute and the lead was quickly doubled by Casemiro. A second-half goal from Toni Kroos put the game beyond doubt, although Florin Andone did have several good opportunities and even missed a penalty for Deportivo La Coruna.

Betting Tips and Predictions

This fixture makes a return to the La Liga campaign for the first time since March 2016. Deportivo La Coruna have been the successful team in this fixture with three wins in the last five, but they have failed to win on their last two visits to the Ciutat de València. Levante put in a strong performance against Villarreal and could have scored even before the penalty. Deportivo La Coruna also created a couple of good chances against Real Madrid. Both teams are even coming into the game. I would back a stalemate in this fixture. Only two of the recent six league meetings between Deportivo La Coruna and Levante at all locations has produced over 2.5 goals. Pepe Mel was extremely focused on having a strong defence last season, while Levante’s opening game witnessed less than 2.5 goals. I would pick this game to produce less than 2.5 goals.

Levante Preview

Levante will be on a high after securing the opening day victory over Villarreal, but the club will be aware that home matches hold the key towards avoiding relegation in the La Liga 17/18 season. Levante were able to get promoted from the second division but the club’s last league campaign in the top flight saw them finish bottom of the table with only eight wins. A remarkable seven of those victories came at the Ciutat de València. Manager Juan Muniz has been allowed to strengthen the club with the signings of players like Cheick Doukouré and Emmanuel Boateng.

Levante Team News

Roger Marti Salvador (cruciate ligament) is the only player unavailable for Levante in this game.

Deportivo La Coruna Preview

The disappointing performance against Real Madrid will be something that will hurt Deportivo La Coruna manager Pepe Mel, whose arrival at the club midway through last season was responsible for saving the club from relegation. One of the immediate factors that Pepe Mel addressed was the defensive display. There was a tremendous improvement on this front last season, but conceding three against Real Madrid is not the ideal start to the campaign. A handful of opportunities – including a penalty – fell to Florin Andone but were not converted. Andone scored 12 goals last season.

Deportivo La Coruna Team News

Oscar Pinchi (thigh), Juan Lamas (ankle), Carles Gil (groin), and Alvaro Queijeiro (hamstring) are the players unavailable for Deportivo La Coruna manager Pepe Mel.
