Levante will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following the 2-3 La Liga 2 success over Albacete.
For Levante, the goals were scored by Rober Ibáñez (2'), Campaña (54') and Mohamed Bouldini (73'). Higinio Marín (47') and Álvaro Rodríguez (64') scored for Albacete.
Their latest results highlight the fact that it has been a great time for the Levante rearguard. Levante have been miserly, resulting in the tally of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper during their past 6 outings standing at 4. Putting that to one side, we’ll just have to find out if that trend might be replicated in this match.
Coming into this contest, Levante haven't been defeated in their previous 2 home league matches.

Team News: Levante
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just one fitness concern for the Levante manager Mehdi Nafti to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed squad. Marcelo Saracchi (Shoulder Injury) won’t play.
It looks as if Levante will probably employ a 4-4-2 system, utilising Dani Cárdenas, Francisco Son, Sergio Postigo, Ruben Vezo, Álex Muñoz, Jorge de Frutos, Vicente Iborra, Pepelu, José Campaña, Roberto Soldado and Jhonathan Montiel.
Team News: UD Las Palmas
Due to a mostly available group of players, there’s just the sole fitness worry for the UD Las Palmas gaffer García Pimienta to be concerned about. Kirian Rodríguez (Lymphoma) misses out for this game.
We’re of the thinking that UD Las Palmas appear most likely to make use of a 4-1-2-3 formation, going with Álex Domínguez, Alex Suárez, Saul Coco, Éric Curbelo, Sergi Cardona, Omenuke Mfulu, Jonathan Viera, Enzo Loiodice, Álvaro Jiménez, Marc Cardona and Alberto Moleiro.
We feel that in this game, UD Las Palmas will likely be able to find the back of the net against this Levante outfit, but that might not quite be enough to prevent defeat.
We think that it’s going to be a very close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Levante after the 90. Looking forward to this.
