Levante vs Eibar Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Levante had a smash-and-grab 1-0 win over Getafe during the weekend. Despite being dominated by the opponent for much of the game, Levante’s Coke Andujar was left free in a 79th-minute corner and he converted with aplomb. Eibar fell to a 2-1 loss against Real Madrid coming into this game. Arbilla’s mistake led to Cristiano Ronaldo’s opening goal in the 34th minute. However, Eibar were back on level terms when Ivan Ramis equalised from a 50th-minute corner. There was not to be any celebrations for Eibar, as Ronaldo came up with a late header to win the game.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Levante were quite fortunate to get a victory over Getafe, but there is every possibility of the team latching onto this victory and pushing themselves further clear of the bottom three. Eibar’s form has dipped and the club may be losing sight of the Europa League places. However, the loss against Celta de Vigo is the only away defeat for Eibar in 2018. Levante have drawn more games (12) than any other team in the division this season. I would back a draw in this game.

The hallmark of Levante’s campaign has been a strong defence, which has conceded only 42 goals – the best record amongst teams in the bottom six. This defensive record has been a crucial factor behind keeping Levante out of the bottom three. Eibar have not been scoring well in recent games. I see reasonable value being offered to back under 2.5 goals in total.

Draw – 11/5

Levante Preview

The surprise win over Getafe gives a huge hope for Levante in the relegation fight. The club now have a four-point advantage over the bottom three places with 10 matches left. Still, it is now time for Levante to rest on this advantage, as the club do have some six-pointers from now till the end of the campaign. Especially in the next five matches, Levante are up against Las Palmas and Malaga. The positive element for Levante is a strong defensive run, although the clean sheet against Getafe came against the odds.

 

Levante Team News

Levante have Ivan Lopez (cruciate ligament), Raul Fernandez (hip), Alex Alegria (cruciate ligament), Sergio Postigo (hamstring), Armando Sadiku (nose), Tono (hip), and Cheick Doukoure (knee) and available due to injuries, while goalkeeper Koke Ruiz is unavailable due to suspension. Chema is a doubt with a leg injury.

 

Eibar Preview

Eibar looked like potential Europa League contenders a few weeks ago, but that euphoria has been taken away from the team with the recent set of results. Eibar’s return of just one win in five league matches sees the club six points behind the final Europa League qualification places. Teams like Genoa and Real Betis have been showing far better momentum. It is likely that Jose Luis Mendilibar’s team will have to settle for a place in the top 10 at the best.

 

Eibar Team News

Fran Rico (knee), Sergi Enrich (muscle), and Fabian Orellana (thigh) are the players unavailable for José Luis Mendilibar.
