in a last game before this match, Zaragoza was much better opponent and missed many chances especially in the first half time, but paid the price and received two goals in 44th and 58th minute. Even so, they continued playing well and trying to dominate the game, as they reduced to 1:2, but that was all they could, as they went down to Betis at home.
With this result team of Manolo Jimenez lost two times out of last three matches, falling down to 13th position at the table still being at the safe side with seven points away from the relegation zone. Tonight, he says that he wants a victory, in order to qualify for the quarterfinals, stating that his team will try to open the scoreline and take the lead as soon as possible in the game.
Central defender Loovens (8matches) will stay out of the match due precaution, while midfielder Romaric who has also played 8 matches is out following Copa Africa. In comparison to the previous game, striker Helder Postiga (18 matches/7goals) is back from suspension and will lead the attack in tonight’s game.
levante, on the other side, won in a previous league match 3:1 at home over Bilbao, although they had several important players missing in that game. However, the game itself went much better for them as Bilbao stood with a man down following exclusion of Laporte near the end of the first half.
It was their third victory in last four matches, as they significantly improved the form in recent weeks. They remained at the top 6, positions that lead to Europa League, as they are now only one point away from the fourth position. Striker and the most valuable player Obafemi Martins is back into the squad, as he was suspended for the game against Bilbao. However, Levante still have certain absentees, as central defender David Navarro (17 matches), left defender Juanfran (16 matches), defensive midfielder Iborra (16 matches) and Diop (8 matches) are all out injured.
Zaragoza had many problems at home matches in recent weeks, but tonight they’ll try to bounce back with a good result. On the other side, Levante lost the first game with a 1:0 result and they cannot wait in today’s game, but have to attack from the start. The game itself will be much more opened than the odds suggest and therefore are surely value to take
