Sevilla, though, failed to make life difficult for Barcelona in the title game. After spending five years in Andalusia, Coke signed a three-year contract with Schalke on 31 July, 2016 for a fee of 5 million. The Spanish footballer, who is capable of playing as both full back and a winger, won three UEFA Europa League trophies with los Sevillanos (2014, 2015, 2016) and he made it to the Spanish Cup final in the 2015/2016 season with the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan outfit.

Confidence is clearly flowing through Paco Lopez charges in front of their own supporters and they look a cracking bet at odds-against this Saturday to maintain their 100% home record this season especially after such a resolute performance against Madrid last time out. Their opponents recent woes strengthen the case made for a Levante victory in this clash and were recommending a two point stake on the hosts.

Los Armeros suffered a shocking 2-1 loss to Real Valladolid in front of home fans in their last league match and seeing that their away record is anything but good, we are tempted to put our money on los Levantinos. You should bear in mind that Levante recorded a hard-fought 2-1 win over Eibar in their last meeting at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia. Levante will be aiming to put an end to their four-game winless run in La Liga when they host Eibar at their Estadio Ciudad de Valencia on Matchday 29. Levante want to move away from the danger zone in the La Liga standings, but this game will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a thrilling 4-4 draw and yet another high-scoring affair is on the horizon.

Levante vs Eibar Prediction

Despite producing a fine display against Espanyol at the weekend, Eibar eventually suffered a 2-1 loss to the Catalan outfit in front home fans. The Basques outfit are after their first win of the season, but given Levantes performance in a 3-2 loss to Real Madrid at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, the visitors should be happy with one point from the match. Los Armeros are eager to make amends for the defeat and we predict that they are going to fight tooth and nail in Saturdays football match against Levante.

An interesting fact is that they have netted five of their 6 La Liga goals this term after the 65th minute. In the last round, they were defeated against Real Madrid in Madrid with 3:2, but they are really playing good this season. Two consecutive La Liga victories have Levante sitting above many teams that arent supposed to be there, based on their players and overall quality. They also have trouble with injuries, as Coke and Rober will not play.

If you look at their Head-To-Head matches, the first thing you see is probably the last 4 consecutive matches, where we saw a combined number of 19 goals scored, or almost 5 per game on average. They have only one single point from four games played, so relegation is looking like a possibility for this season. Eibars season is disastrous right now. They will try to turn things around in this game. As it was already said, these two teams have played a lot of games in their recent history.

Roger Marti and Borja Mayoral should lead the line but Eibar have a worry over their striker Sergi Enrich which could push Jos Luis Mendilibar into a change. Levante should revert to playing either 4-4-2 or 4-3-3 having utilised five at the back last weekend with limited success. These sides played out two entertaining contests last term so this could be a decent one for the neutrals.

Levante Team News

Trailing 3-0 at Half-Time, the game looked dead but Paco Lopezs side pulled a couple of goals back and came very close to a leveller in Stoppage Time with Thibaut Courtois sparing the home teams blushes in the end. Levante meanwhile almost pulled off one of the great La Liga comebacks at the Bernabeu. Theyll be hoping to build on home victories over Villarreal and Real Valladolid here.

Levante are, unsurprisingly then, favourites to land the spoils on Matchday 5 against an Eibar side who have won just one of their last 18 away La Liga games, losing nine. The latest of those disappointments came before the international break as Los Armeros blew a two goal advantage against Atletico Madrid at Wanda Metropolitano, and they fluffed a lead once more on Matchday 4 as Espanyol ran out 1-2 winners at Ipurua Municipal Stadium.

They will fancy their chances of doing just that against an Eibar side that has got off to quite a slow start. The Basques are very much established at this level now but defeat here would really start to raise a few questions as to whether this might be the season in which they are dragged into a relegation scrap. Saturdays clash from Valencia sees Levante aiming to make it 3 wins from 3 at home this season.

The omens dont look particularly good. They were beaten 2-1 by fellow early strugglers Espanyol despite taking the lead in that game through Ivan Ramis. Theyve only chalked up one point from their four matches. While they did have to play all their opening three games away from home due renovations at Ipurua, there were no home comforts to be found last time out.

By looking at the way Levante is playing at home, with 2 wins from 2 games and 4 goals scored, I dont see that happening. Last time Levante started La Liga season with 3 home wins in a row, was the 2011/2012 campaign, so it is going to be interesting to see if they could do it again. I can expect over 2.5 goals in this one again, based on their tradition. By examining all of that, probably the safest bet is over 2.5 goals scored.
