Team News: Levante
Enis Bardhi (Muscle Injury) and José Campaña (Knee Injury) are unavailable for Levante gaffer Paco López.
Team News: Eibar
Owing to an otherwise full-strength group, there is only the one fitness issue for the Eibar boss José Mendilíbar to be concerned about. José Ángel (Ruptured cruciate ligament) won’t be in action.
Our assessment is that Eibar are likely to score against this Levante lineup, but it probably shouldn’t be enough to avoid a loss.
We reckon that it will be a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 advantage for Levante after the 90. Looking forward to seeing how this one unfolds.
