TIP OF THE DAY: Levante – Elche: Can the Hosts Join the Fight for La Liga Promotion?

On Sunday, the betting offer isn’t as high-quality as it was last week, but the day still brings us several interesting matches across Europe. This time, we have analyzed the duel to be played in Valencia, where Levante will host Elche. The match between these two teams is scheduled to start at 18:30.

Levante: Diminishing Chances to See Levante in the Elite Again!

Last season, Levante narrowly missed promotion to the top tier of Spanish football, where, frankly, this team belongs. They finished the regular season in third place on the table, with the same number of points as second-placed Las Palmas. It’s known that at the end of the regular season, the top two teams earn the right to play in La Liga the following season.

The deciding factor was the head-to-head record, and since both matches ended in draws, the deciding factor was that Las Palmas scored a goal in their away draw at Levante, ending 1:1. Levante tried to secure promotion through the playoffs, where they first demolished Albacete in the semifinals but then suffered a defeat to Alaves in the grand final, sending the Basque team back to the top tier of Spanish football. It was certainly a painful loss for Levante, but despite this, their primary goals have not changed this season, although, unfortunately, it seems to be a much harder task now.

Currently, this likable team is in eleventh place on the table, five points behind sixth-placed Burgos. As we’ve already mentioned, it’s known that the sixth place is also the last one that leads to the playoffs at the end of the regular season. In their last five matches, Felipe Minambres’ men have only managed one win, one loss, and three draws, the last of which happened in the previous round when they drew 1:1 away at Burgos. It seems that Levante’s players can be more than satisfied with the point earned from that match, as the home team had eleven shots on target, of which only one ended in the net of the guests from Valencia. Before that, Levante also drew at home against weak Andorra, and that match ended goalless.

Finally, regarding home performances, Minambres’ squad has played fifteen matches at their stadium, achieving seven wins, six draws, and only two losses, and it’s certain that victory is imperative this time.

Elche: The Team from Alicante Holds Everything in Their Hands!

Last season, the team from Alicante spent in the top tier of Spanish football, but they did not shine there, as Elche finished last on the table, sixteen points behind the teams that managed to stay in La Liga, indicating a pretty bad season for the club. Of course, there’s no doubt that the primary goal this time is to achieve promotion to the top tier of Spanish football, and as things stand now, it’s not excluded that this might happen. Before this round, the team from Alicante was in second place on the table, three points behind first-placed Leganes. It’s known that at the end of the championship, the top two teams will secure direct promotion to La Liga, while teams from third to sixth place will fight for the remaining one spot in the elite tier of Spanish football through the playoffs.

So far, the former first division team has played 31 matches in this year’s Segunda and achieved fifteen victories, eight draws, and the same number of losses. In the last five matches, Sebastián Beccacece’s men have achieved four victories and only one draw, which happened at their stadium against Eibar, where there were no goals. In the previous round, the team from Alicante played a fantastic match at their home and defeated Albacete, with the match seeing five goals, ending 3:2 in favor of the home team. The guests took the lead first, but the home side relatively easily achieved a turnaround.

However, Albacete equalized again in the 78th minute, only for the home team to score another goal just two minutes later, which was the final result, securing Elche’s position in second place on the table. Before that, the former first division team also celebrated in an away match against Villarreal’s second team, ending 0:1, with the observation that the host was a much better rival in that match. The last head-to-head encounter between Levante and Elche was played at the end of September last year, ending in a goalless draw.

Finally, regarding away matches, the team from Alicante has played fifteen matches away from home, achieving six victories, suffering the same number of losses, and three draws. Elche’s last away defeat happened at the beginning of February at Amorebieta, ending 1:0.

Our Suggestion

This is one of the last chances for Levante to catch up with the teams fighting for a playoff spot, and we believe the host must go all out, which is why we boldly recommend trying with a single, for which the bookmaker 22Bet has prepared an odds of 2.49.

In Levante’s recent home matches, there haven’t been many goals, and given the high stakes, it seems that this might be the case this time too, so we advise you to try with a game of 0-2 goals, all with an odds of 1.52 at 22Bet.

Finally, it might be ideal to try with a combination of games 1X&0-3, for which the bookmaker 22Bet has prepared an odds of 1.69.
