Betting TipLevante to Win
Levante remain bottom of the La Liga standings, and desperately need the points to move within striking distance of the sides above them. On Friday, they come up against an Elche side that have won three of their previous five games in the Spanish top-flight.
La Liga Preview
There have been signs of improvement by Levante in recent weeks, as they have gone two without defeat in La Liga. They need to maintain that form if they are to stand any chance of staying up this season, but those chances appear incredibly unlikely at this stage of the campaign.
Levante are nine points from safety after 25 games played this term, and have lost the second-highest number of games in the league. They have also won the fewest number. Levante at least come into this home fixture in relatively decent form, having taken four points from the last six available in La Liga.
They were held in their latest fixture in Spain on Monday evening, as they fought back late in the game to salvage a 1-1 draw against Celta Vigo. Roger Marti scored the equalising goal eight minutes from time.
Many would have expected Elche to be among the sides to struggle in La Liga this season, but their recent form has seen them easily move nine clear of the relegation places in the Spanish top-flight. They could move into the top half of the standings with a victory on Friday night.
Elche have won three of their last five games in the league, and have lost just once during that run. Their latest win came against Rayo Vallecano last Friday, as they scored twice in the final 15 minutes. Ezequiel Ponce scored the winning goal with just six minutes of the 90 remaining.
Levante vs Elche Head to Head
Levante have picked up just one win in the previous seven meetings between the sides in La Liga. That win came in December 2013. They have gone six without a win against Elche, with the three of the previous four ending in draws.
Levante vs Elche Prediction
Levante’s record in this fixture certainly doesn’t bold well for their chances on Friday. Elche’s form has been excellent in recent weeks, and we could see them challenging for a place in the top half of the standings. I think that they’ll get the win that they need on the road this weekend.
