Levante will be hoping to bounce back here following a 1-0 La Liga defeat in their last game at the hands of Mallorca.
In that game, Levante managed 46% possession and 6 attempts at goal with 2 on target. For their opponents, RCD Mallorca got 9 shots on goal with 7 on target. Ángel Rodríguez (75') scored for Mallorca.
Levante have struggled with their forward play of late. Their ‘goals for’ figure stands at just 2 versus opposing sides over the course of their last 6 fixtures. In those meetings, Levante have also seen the tally of goals scored against them total 9.
Coming into this fixture, Levante are without a win at home for the past 8 league matches. Such a poor run.
Last time out, Getafe drew 1-1 in the La Liga tie with Real Sociedad.
In that game, Getafe had 38% possession and 9 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Getafe was Sandro Ramírez (40'). At the other end, Real Sociedad got 10 shots at goal with 5 on target. Mikel Oyarzabal (68') scored for Real Sociedad.
The strike force from Getafe have struggled for goals in their past 6 games, netting the disappointing return of just 3. In those matches, Azulones have also seen the overall goal tally of opposing teams equal 11. While that may be of interest, time will tell if the trend shall continue on in this next game.
Taking a look at their past results, Getafe:
- have not beaten Levante in away games against them for the last 9 matches in the league. A really bad run.
- are without an away win for the past 7 league games.

Team News: Levante
José Campaña (Muscle Injury) and Roberto Soldado (Hamstring Injury) will not be able to play for Levante manager Paco López.
Team News: Getafe
Getafe manager Míchel González has to currently contend with reduced team options. Erick Cabaco (Unknown Injury), Jakub Jankto (Calf Injury) and Vitolo (Muscle Injury) will not be playing here.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Getafe might have a difficult job to register a score against this Levante lineup who we think should be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We’re therefore predicting a very even contest with a 1-0 winning score for Levante when the full-time whistle blows.
Expecting it to be tight.
