Match Preview

  • A 2-1 defeat at Villarreal in the last round was only Levante’s second loss across their last 11 La Liga (LL) matches, albeit that was a run dominated by six 1-1 draws. With 51.52% of the competitive H2Hs versus Eibar also ending in a draw, this match could be a close affair between two mid-table teams.
  • Levante have been hard to beat at home this LL campaign (W3, D3, L1), and after recording three straight top-flight wins at home – scoring during both halves in each – they look primed to leapfrog their opponents with another victory here. An average of 1.71 goals scored per LL home game this season is decent to take into this clash, and curiously, lies very close to the 1.60 average they’ve managed in home H2Hs since returning to the top tier in 2014/15.
  • You have to go back to 2005/06 to find a league season in which Eibar recorded less than their current four wins after 17 rounds (W4, D7, L6), and much of that is down to an average of just 0.82 goals scored per top-flight match. However, it could’ve been a lot worse if it wasn’t for a defence that’s also conceded less than one goal on average per LL fixture (0.94).
  • Eibar have left their best performances for on the road though, where they’ve picked up 63.16% of their points, and three of four overall wins. In fact their 1-1 draw at Barcelona in their last LL road trip was the seventh time – from eight LL away games – in which they scored the opener (W3, D2, L2).
  • Players to watch: Roger Martí has scored in Levante’s last three LL home games, twice as their first goalscorer. Similarly, Kike has been Eibar’s first goalscorer in two of their last four LL fixtures.
  • Hot stat: Eight of the ten previous top-flight H2Hs featured goals in both halves.
