Levante – Girona : Preview & Prediction
Levante and Girona face each other at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia in a match of the 18th round of the Primera Division. The history of direct confrontations played at this stadium indicates balance between these two teams, since there was 1 draw and 1 victory for each team in the last 3 matches. Indeed, the last time they met at this stadium was on 11-21-2017, in a Copa del Rey match that ended in a 1-1 draw. The goals of the match were scored by José Luis Morales (75 ‘) for Levante and J. Mojica (33’) for Girona. The home / off condition deserves special attention, although this is a match between 10th and 9th overall, this is in fact a confrontation between the 15th placed in home games and the 7th as a visitor.
Levante team is currently in 10th place with 22 points earned after 6 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses. In the penultimate match, he lost at home to Barcelona by (0-5). In the last match, he lost out to Rayo Vallecano by (2-1). This is a team that normally achieves more positive results as a visitor than at home, having won 12 points, scoring 15 goals and 13, and 10 points in the stadium with 13 goals scored and 19 goals conceded. In the last eight home games for the league, Levante have recorded 3 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses, having won 10 points out of 24 possible. In their domestic league matches the most frequent marker in the break was 1-0 (3 out of 8 matches). The team conceded goals to their opponents in 7 of the last 10 games, so they have not shown great defensive solidity, but their attack has scored regularly, since they managed to achieve in 9 of the last 10 games in this competition. In their home matches by the competition there is a tendency towards goals, since 7 in 8 finished with More than 2.5 goals in the marker. In 17 games in this competition, he only managed 1 turn on the scoreboard in the 8 games in which he suffered the first goal.
Levante is a club that has never been a La Liga champion (1st Spanish League Championship), but the club has already been a champion of the Liga Adelante (2nd Division of the Spanish League) twice, the last in 2016/17, title that gave access to the elite of Spanish football. In the current season, the team has been making an irregular campaign within the national championship, winning 22 of the 51 points played so far, thus being in the middle of the table, relatively close to the classification zone for the Europa League. In the last five games that the Levant played as principal, counting more than one competition, in all of them were scored more than 1.5 goals by the teams. I believe that in this match the Levante, by playing at home, could score their goals and will make another game more lively.
Girona is currently in 9th place with 22 points, after 5 wins, 7 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, he lost out to Sevilla by (2-0). In the last match, tied at home to Getafe by (1-1). This is a team that normally achieves more positive results as a visitor than at home, having won 12 and 10 away in their stadium with 10 goals scored and 13 goals conceded at home, against 8 goals scored and 7 conceded. In the league, Girona conquered 12 points in 24 chances, after 3 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses in the last 8 games they played as a visitor. In his league games as a visitor, the most frequent result at half-time was 0-0 (5 out of 8 matches). The team allowed their opponents’ goals in 7 of the last 10 games for this competition, so they have not been very strong defensively. In their games away to this competition there is a tendency to have few goals, since 4 of the last 8 that disputed finished with Less than 1.5 goals. In 17 games in this competition, he suffered the first goal 6 times and never managed to turn the score. There are 1 highlights in the last 10 matches played as a visitor for all competitions: he suffered 5 of his 9 goals in the minutes (61′-75 ‘).
Girona is a club that has started to play in the Primera Division (Spanish League) recently and so has not yet become champion, but has already been runner-up to the Liga Adelante (second division national) in the 2016/17 season. In the current season the team has been making an irregular campaign in the national championship, winning 22 of the 51 points played so far, thus being in the middle of the table, relatively close to the first placed. In the last five games that Girona played as a visitor, counting more than one competition, in three of them were scored more than 1.5 goals by the teams. I believe that in this match Girona will play another busy game, since they can score because of the defensive fragility of the opponent and also suffer goals.
