Venue: Ciudad de Valencia

 

It seemed that Cosmin Contra’s arrival in Getafe came a little too late. The season is about to end and despite praises of helping the club “play with more intensity,” the club does not have the luxury of time to regroup.

 

Just recently, Getafe suffered its 2nd consecutive loss. Diego Simeone’s men were simply too strong for Contra’s squad. Nevertheless, its only consolation is the fact that that they have limited Atletico’s goals to 2. It could have been more than that.

 

Getafe’s form is also in bad shape. It has already lost 10 of its last 13 matches. On a closer look, the bulk of its problem lies on its away performances. The club was unable to score in 8 of its last 10 away matches, thus, making their survival struggle a lot more difficult.

 

On the other hand, Levante shares a similar fate with Getafe. It also endured a 2 consecutive defeat. The most recent one was against Villarreal. According to its head honcho, Joaquin Caparros, its struggling defence led to the disappointing loss.

 

Levante can exploit its home court advantage against Getafe in the match. However, there are doubts if it will still work as it has recently lost its last 3 home matches.

 

The only thing that keeps the club away from too much worrying is the fact that they are in the league’s top 10. They are miles away from being relegated as the season is about to end as well.

 

Levante stands as the match’s online betting favorite and is pegged to win at a profitable value of 2.47 at 12BET.

 

 

Prediction: Levante
