Team Form    

Levante

Les Granotes dropped a notch in the La Liga table after a scoreless stalemate against Real Sociedad.

 

Currently sitting on the 10th spot of the table, Levante has nothing to worry about relegation. But this is not the case for the striker, David Barral.

 

Barral stressed that their survival chances will only increase if they can secure victory in their three (3) upcoming matches. Such will give them enough points to avoid unexpected slips and drops and if they proved to be more results-oriented, they can look forward to a stronger finish this season.

 

Levante have been undefeated in their last five (5) matches. They plan to continue such impressive performance when Almeria visit them.

 

Almeria

Francisco Rodriguez and his men gave their supporters more than enough reason to celebrate last week. They are the (culprits) behind one of the shocking upsets that the league has ever witnessed when they kept the title contender, Atletico Madrid, at bay and scored two (2) goals.

 

With the said triumph, Rodriguez praised his side on how they reacted towards all the skepticism thrown at them. He stressed that the said match has readily proved their ability to compete against bigger and stronger clubs.

 

Earning an additional three (3) points, Almeria moved away from the relegation arena. They are now on the 15th spot of the La Liga table.

 

Prediction:  Levante

Almeria’s  renewed confidence may help them feature in the match against Levante. They put a temporarily stopped to Atletico Madrid’s run and they are very much capable of giving Levante a headache. Unfortunately for Almeria, their poor away form might compromise them. They have been unsuccessful in their last three (3) away matches and Levante, will definitely, take advantage of this situation as they have been unbeaten in their last five (5) matches.
