Levante vs Granada Match Preview
Granada will look to pick themselves up from late heartbreak in the Copa del Rey on Thursday night here as they travel to Levante. The Valencia side are consistently inconsistent so you can never be quite sure what you are going to get from them. Despite their mixed results this term, victory here would move them onto 35 points and the brink of safety.
Levante’s season is perfectly summed up by their last two results. They beat Real Madrid 1-0 in their most recent outing at the Ciutat de Valencia. However they immediately followed that up with a poor display and 3-0 defeat away to Eibar. Despite that victory over Los Blancos, they are joint bottom of the form table for the last 8 games in La Liga with a return of just 6 points. They do though have a very healthy 58% home win ratio which should give them confidence heading into this one.
Granada meanwhile take good league form into this. They’ve taken 7 points from their last 3 outings in La Liga with victories over Real Valladolid and Osasuna pushing them back towards the European battle. They were winners in midweek too, beating Athletic Club 2-1 at Los Carmenes in their Copa del Rey Semi-Final 2nd Leg but they still exited the competition on away goals.
It’ll be interesting to see how they react to that disappointment here. Diego Martinez and his team have continued to impress this term but Yuri’s late goal for Athletic would have hit them hard and this game will come around very quickly for them which could turn out to be a good or bad thing.
Levante vs Granada Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-0 Levante
Granada have been absolutely terrific this season but you do wonder if all the games and the emotion of Thursday night may finally catch up with them here. Levante’s cup run has long since ended and while they’ve been poor on the road in recent weeks in La Liga, their home form has remained strong and they look capable of having the edge in this one.
