Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero will host Saturday’s football game between Elche and Levante. Los Franjiverdes aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Getafe which undisputedly gave them a confidence boost. Summer signing Lucas Perez, who impressed on his Elche debut, is widely expected to make his full debut against los Levantinos. Head coach Fran Escriba should have a full squad to choose from for Saturday’s clash.
Levante head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Rayo Vallecano. The visitors have yet to record a win in the La Liga campaign, and seeing that los Franjiverdes are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we are tempted to put our money on Fran Escriba’s troops. Experienced attacker Roberto Soldado remains in Levante’s recovery room, alongside Rober Pier, Jose Campana, and Jorge de Frutos.
