Espanyol VS Levante
KICK OFF: Sunday 16th Sept 2018 | 16:15 CET
LA LIGA WK4 | RCDE Stadium
Expect a closely-contested affair when Espanyol meet Levante but can either side collect maximum points?
This fixture is usually tight characterised by narrow wins or stalemates. There was no winner over two legs last season, and goals were scarce. Both teams have had mixed results so far into the new season, collecting four points each from three games.
Espanyol lost to Deportivo Alaves on their most recent outing, and they will want to bounce back immediately with a trip to Bernabeu next. They have scored in all three league games, and have the physicality to compete.
Levante demolished Real Betis 3 - 0 on their first game on the road but didn’t do well from the two home games that followed, getting just one point from a possible six. Attackers Roger Marti and Luis Morales have five goals between and will be a threat to Espanyol.
Given both sides goal scoring capabilities, it’s possible they cancel each other out, but I see value in backing Levante to come out on top.
Key Match Facts
- Espanyol’s loss to Alaves was the first in eight league games.
- Levante has averaged two goals in their last nine games in the league.
