Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Las Palmas were producing fine displays in La Liga last season, but they have been struggling to find their best form in the first half of the 2017/2018 campaign. Los Amarillos have been struggling at the back in the Spanish top flight this term and they are on a seven-game losing run in the national championship ahead of the visit of Levante. Las Palmas aim to escape the relegation zone and we predict that they will leave their hearts on the field in Sunday’s football match against los Levantinos. Juan Muniz’s men failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Girona before the international break and, no doubt, they are low on confidence ahead of the trip to Gran Canaria. Las Palmas are tough to beat at home and seeing that this has to go down as a must-win game for the hosts, we are tempted to put our money on Pako Ayestaran’s men.
