Match Preview

  • Lamenting their longest winless run (D3, L3) in La Liga (LL) football since Feb-Apr 2019, Levante will meet Elche for the first time since handing out consecutive one-goal defeats in the 2016/17 Segunda División season. They still lack a clean sheet this season, and were one of two clubs yet to collect one in the 2020/21 league season going into the November break.
  • Levante also conceded goals at home to all three promoted clubs in the 2019/20 La Liga (LL) campaign, but avoided defeat nonetheless (W1, D2). Meanwhile, where this season is concerned, they can attribute a porous defence to their current winless league record as a home favourite (D2, L0).
  • Contrastingly, Elche enjoy one of the league’s finest win rates as an outsider this term (W3, D2, L2), after conceding the opening goal in just one of their last six LL contests at all venues. To illustrate the importance of a positive first half to them, the HT result has been replicated at the final whistle in each of their last six league games (W3, D2, L1).
  • The visitors boast the finer defence of the two sides, conceding more than one goal in just their two defeats. They have been especially impressive in the opening half, where they have conceded just three LL goals at all venues, going on to enjoy a 60% win rate (W3, D1, L1) in the league when keeping a clean sheet to the HT break.
  • Players to watch: José Morales recently became the first player to record Levante’s opening goal twice this league season, doing so in just his third goalscoring LL appearance of the 2020/21 campaign.
  • One of Josan’s two LL match openers for Elche has been recorded away from home.
  • Hot stat: Ahead of kick-off, Levante have completed 14 LL fixtures without a HT lead.
