After coming in 15th twice in a row, the other Valencia-based side finally managed to break the mould and secure the 12th placement in 2019/20.
It’s hard to say if this was a sign of improvement or just a fluke – but Levante have been known to punch above their weight class. Coach Paco Lopez’ surprisingly aggressive approach has won the hearts of many supporters, though it’s unreliable nature makes Levante betting predictions volatile at best.
That said, the bookies are fairly optimistic when it comes to odds. La Liga outright bets for relegation are priced at around 5, which places them above some teams with a much longer presence in Spain’s top flight. In fact, at odds of 3.75, breaking into the top half seems like a viable goal for the season.
Levante Key Players
If there’s one thing that is stopping Lopez’ lads from moving up on the table, it’s their defence.
They’ve had some of the worst concession rates in the league for 3 years in a row. That said, last season marked a significant improvement – they conceded 15 goals fewer than the year before. That’s why the transfer window was far less exciting this summer, though the arrival of Mickaël Malsa might move the block a bit further up the pitch. This should take some of the pressure off Aitor Fernández on the goal.
Speaking of transfers, left-winger Moses Simon signed with Nantes, which wasn’t a major surprise seeing how well Levante did while he was on loan. The Frogs’ offence will thus rely on the proven successes of José Campaña and Enis Bardhi as forwards.
