Levante Preview – La Liga’s great entertainers ending the season in fine fettle?

Something of a rarity for Levante (12th – W12 D6 L15) in their latest La Liga encounter, involved in just their second 0-0 draw of the campaign at Real Valladolid’s Jose Zorrilla stadium last Wednesday. According to Infogol’s Expected Goals model, though, it was an extremely fortunate point for ‘The Frogs’: xG VAL 1.7 – 0.29 LEV. Plenty for the hosts to improve on, then, when they entertain a Real Sociedad side enduring something of a rut.

Levante can take nothing for granted, however, having tasted a 3-1 defeat in this same fixture last season. In fact, the Valencia-based outfit possess a very poor record at home to Monday’s opponents, whom they’ve beaten on just one occasion in said matches in five prior attempts (W1 D2 L2). However, victory during this season’s reverse fixture, holding on to a 2-0 half-time lead to win 2-1, should inspire confidence.

Furthermore, Paco Lopez’s men are unquestionably enjoying the stronger of the two teams form since La Liga resumed last month. The battling point in midweek at Valladolid bolstered their points tally since the restart to nine from six games (W2 D3 L1), losing only to third-place Atletico Madrid in that time, in what was a narrow 1-0 reverse on their own patch. The latter one of four home defeats in 2019/20 (W8 D4 L4).


Draw & Both Teams To Score



Real Sociedad Preview – Midweek victory a turning point in their season?

At the sixth attempt, Real Sociedad (7th – W15 D5 L13) are off the mark after finally winning their first match since the La Liga resumption. And when it did arrive, it was far from convincing, requiring a second-half fightback at Anoeta to overcome bottom side Espanyol (xG 1.81 – 0.14 ESP). A goal apiece from forwards Willian Jose and Alexsander Isak, the latter scoring six minutes from time, ultimately sparring further blushes.

Coach Imanol Alguacil must be praying Thursday’s scrappy victory is the first act of his team’s revival because unless a combination of performance and results improve sharpish, the club could miss out on fulfilling its objectives for the season. Any aspirations of competing in next season’s Champions League have been dashed, however, on the back of their dismal efforts since returning from a Covid-19 enforced break.

After an initial draw at home to Osasuna, Sociedad subsequently went and lost four successive games. The 2-1 losses against Real Madrid and Getafe were more forgivable, particularly as Alguacil’s men run both sides close, however, the defeats to Alaves (2-0) and Celta Vigo (0-1) – teams fighting for their lives near the bottom of La Liga – were a lot harder to pass off.

Levante Vs Real Sociedad Betting Advice

This season, only five teams boast more goals at home than Levante (24 in 16 such games) while Real Sociedad‘s away tally of 19 in 16 outings remains the sixth-best in the division. Therefore we should be in for a lively affair at Cuitat de Valencia, especially as Levante rarely do dull with five of their last seven La Liga games featuring both teams among the goals.


Levante Vs Real Sociedad – Key Facts

  • Since the La Liga restart Levante have recorded only one defeat in six matches (W2 D3 L1), with both teams scoring on four occasions
  • Real Sociedad had to be patient for their first win after the restart, collecting one point from five post-lockdown fixtures prior to beating Espanyol 2-1 in midweek.
  • These teams are evenly-matched judging by recent meetings, with the past six head-to-heads producing two wins a piece and a couple draws. The last three, meanwhile, featured both teams scoring.


Levante can still achieve a top-half finish, which would represent another solid campaign for the side from Valencia. Meanwhile, Real Sociedad will be bitterly disappointed were they to miss out on Europe. The visitors ideally need to be winning here in order to make up for all the ground they’ve recently lost, however, a mixed away record (W6 D2 L8) would suggest that is by no means guaranteed.
