Getafe

Coming back from a narrow defeat against Atletico Madrid, Getafe ensured that it will take the three (3) points away from Deportivo La Coruna. The club clinched an early lead, which prevented its previous opponent the opportunity to equalize.

 

Due to the said victory, Getafe made it to the top 10 of the La Liga table. As for Cosmin Contra, the club manager was indeed, satisfied with what the current online betting favorite showed.

 

Elche

Fran Escriba is positive that Elche’s victory against Espanyol will serve as the club’s turning point in terms of displaying a stellar performance.

 

Elche is one of the teams that have been flirting in the relegation zone for quite some time now and its most recent victory just helped them to move a little bit farther from the dreaded zone.

 

Jonathas spearheaded Elche’s attack during the Espanyol face-off. He scored a brace, which gave the team its 2nd win since the season kicked-off.

Sevilla vs. Levante

 

Match Date: 09 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan

 

Sevilla

Sevilla succumbed to its 2nd loss this season when it went against the struggling Athletic Bilbao last week. The host snatched a narrow 1-0 victory, much to the disappointment of Sevilla’s manager, Unai Emery.

 

The implications of the said loss are quite costly. First, it prevented their rise to the top and lastly, the loss may affect its performance in the Europa League.

 

Nevertheless, despite the said loss, Emery stressed that the team will ensure that last week’s disappointment will be nothing but plain, temporary.

 

Levante

Levante will be taking the positives from the win that it snatched against Almeria. It was the club’s 2nd victory and it also salvaged them from staying further in the relegation zone.

 

Lucas Alcaraz admitted that there is a high possibility for the club to experience a survival struggle throughout the season, but the recent win could very much aid them in lessening the damage of their current situation.

 

 

Prediction

Sevilla 2-0 Levante
