It seems likely that Levante will probably kick off with a 4-4-2 formation for the game with Joan Femenías, Xavi Grande, Adrián de la Fuente, Ruben Vezo, Álex Valle, Carlos Álvarez, Oriol Rey, Giorgi Kochorashvili, Pablo Martínez, Iván Romero and Dani Gómez.
Team News: Racing de Santander
Thanks to a fully healthy squad ready to go, the Racing de Santander manager José Alberto López doesn’t have any fitness worries to report coming into this match.
We are inclined to think that Los Racinguistas might play in a 4-2-3-1 system, settling for Jokin Ezkieta, Álvaro Mantilla, Germán Sánchez, R. González Alves, Íñigo Sainz-Maza, D. F. Fernández, Aritz Aldasoro, G. F. Castellano, Andrés Martín, Iñigo Vicente and Juan Carlos Arana.
We feel that in this game, Racing de Santander certainly have the ability to find the back of the net against this Levante outfit, however it isn’t expected to prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We reckon that it will be a narrow 2-1 advantage for Levante when the full-time whistle blows. There looks to be little in this one.
