Levante welcomes Deportivo Alaves in a match from the 20th round of La Liga
Levante welcomes Deportivo Alaves in a match from the 20th round of La Liga. We will spend few minutes to take a look at this fixture in our La Liga predictions today.
Levante are approaching this game from 11th place in the standings. They are having 26 points won so far and a record of 8 wins, 2 draws and 9 losses. We can say they are having an okay season as they are 11 points above the relegation zone, which is giving them some comfort at the moment.
On Saturday Levante will try to get on the right path after the defeat they suffered against Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano. Roger Marti scored for Paco Lopez’ team in the capital, but they were unable to do more.
During the week Levante had a game in Copa del Rey and they progressed for the next round. They needed penalties in order to eliminate Real Jaen after a 1-1 draw in the regular time.
Deportivo Alaves are currently 15th in La Liga with 20 points won so far. What’s worrying their manager Asier Garitano is their current shape, because they are without a win in their last five games.
Last week Alaves made their 5th draw for the season. They hosted Real Betis at home, but the game ended without a winner – 1-1. Aleix Vidal opened the score for the hosts, but Emerson equalised for Betis.
During the week Deportivo Alaves didn’t have a game in Copa del Rey, so they must be a little bit more fresher on Saturday. Garitano’s problems are related to the injury of Pina and the suspension of Mubarak Wakaso, who are missing the next match.
That’s our La Liga predictions for the match between Levante and Deportivo Alaves on Saturday. We expect a close game here, so let’s see.
