Levante vs Alaves predictions, H2H and match preview for this Saturday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as two bottom half sides clash in Valencia.
Levante vs Alaves Preview
The second half of the season begins for Levante and Alaves with a showdown in Valencia on Saturday lunchtime. Both sides fall into a similar category of having made a reasonably strong start to the campaign but with work still to do to ensure they don’t get sucked into a relegation scrap over the second half of the season.
Levante are in the stronger position with 26 points a very decent reward for their efforts so far this term. Consistency hasn’t exactly been their forte though with 4 wins and 4 defeats from their last 8 games, the most recent of which was a narrow 2-1 defeat against Atletico Madrid. Their home record is a strong one with 1.89 points per game taken on average so far this term at the Ciutat de Valencia.
They are up against an Alaves side that hasn’t travelled well. They’ve lost 7 of their 9 away games so far this season in La Liga and have also been dumped out of the Copa del Rey away to 4th tier opponents. Asier Garitano’s side are without a win in 5 league games heading into this and they could do with a win to kick start their season back into life.
Levante are missing midfielder Nikola Vukcevic to suspension here while Ruben Vezo is an injury doubt. They are likely to line up 4-4-2 with Jose Campaña providing much of the inspiration in midfield. Alaves will match that but are likely to employ a more direct style with Joselu providing an aerial threat up top.
Levante vs Alaves Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-1 Levante
With home advantage, you have to fancy Levante to edge this one. Alaves just don’t look comfortable on the road and they’ve not even been particularly tough to break down with a huge 2.56 goals per game conceded on average away this season. Levante have enough quality in midfield and up top to exploit those frailties and win the game.
