Leganes vs Levante
Competition – Spanish Primera
Stadium – Butarque
Date: 4th March 2019
Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT
These two sides meet in Madrid just above the drop zone as Levante will hope to leave this game with something to stay close with their rivals.
They come into this game occupying the 14th and 15th position respectively after collecting 30 points this season so far.
Their points total is 10 points short of the magic 40 that they need to be confident of avoiding relegation, however, they are both also 7 points clear of the drop zone so there are no immediate fears of being relegated.
Leganes come into this game in fine home form. They have not lost any of their last 12 home games in all competitions and they have beaten both Barcelona and Real Madrid at home during this period of time.
Levante have been in much more inconsistent form. They come into this game after losing 2-1 at home to Real Madrid – a result that followed an emphatic 4-1 win over Celta Vigo away from home.
The visitors will be looking to get all three points here but they will have to be prepared to breach a defence that is almost always unsung at home.
Bookmakers have priced Leganes up as favourites to come out on top in this game while goal markets point to a tight affair as under 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on.
Youssef En-Nesyri is clear favourite to score the opening goal of the game.
