Levante hosts Betis in round 24 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Sunday, February 13th at Estadi Ciutat de València (Valencia)
Levante defeated Mallorca on January 8th (2-0). There were expectations that the team would gain momentum and gradually get out of the relegation zone. But the Frogs lost the next two games without scoring a single goal against Cadiz CF and Getafe. As a result, Alessio Lisci’s men still have only one victory in their assets and are in last place in the standings with 11 points scored. The gap to the saving 16th position is as many as 12 points. Levante has huge problems in defense. In 22 matches, the team conceded 46 goals. On average, the Frogs concede at least two goals in 90 minutes. And they scored only 21 goals.

Betis failed to do anything against Villarreal in the last home match. The Yellow Submarine confidently won with a score of 0-2. Thus, Pellegrini’s men ended a streak of three consecutive matches without defeats (two victories and one draw). Nevertheless, the team from Seville is still in a fairly high 3rd place in the standings (40 points after 23 matches). Betis is the second-best team in Spain in terms of away results: six victories, two draws, and three defeats with a goal difference of 18-13. The Green-Whites earned 20 points in 11 away games. Only Real Madrid has better away indicators.
In the first round, Betis did not experience any problems with Levante at Estadio Benito Villamarin (3-1). But in the previous season, Levante was stronger than Betis in a bright home match (4-3). Moreover, Levante has scored at least one goal against Betis in nine of the previous 11 head-to-head matches at Estadi Ciutat de València. To understand who is the favorite in this pair and why, just look at the Spanish Championship standings. But do not forget that the Frogs were stronger than the Green-Whites in the last three home games. It is quite possible that the hosts will not lose again. Yes, the opponent is stronger, but the Andalusians will take the field after a difficult cup match against Rayo Vallecano, which they won 1-2. It’s far from certain that their condition will be optimal. I think we will see goals from both teams in the upcoming game.
