Espanyol – Levante LaLiga: 13th October 2017
Espanyol missed last round with Real Madrid, but this was the only failure in the last four games played. The Catalans approached half the rankings and a new victory would ensure continued ascension.
Levante comes after two games he failed to score. The start of the season, with five unbeaten matches, seems far away, considering how the team lost. Sevilla got four goals from Betis, while in the previous round he lost at home, 0-2 with Alaves, the team that did not win any points in the first seven games.
The results of direct matches in recent years do not favor any of the teams. Four of the last ten matches ended in a tie, with each team in three games. The goals were not missed, both teams managed to score in eight of the ten games. Interestingly, the team that played at home did not lose any of these matches.
Victor Sanchez, Javi Lopez and Marc Navarro are uncertain for the Catalan team due to injuries. However, at least one of them could play from the first minute.
Levante will have to do without Roger Marti, Ivan Lopez, Jason and Samu Garcia. These absences can affect the team, who does not have a very rich lot. However, the return of Jefferson Lerma should be a welcome guest.
Lopez – Martin, Lopez, Hermoso, Sanchez – Darder, Fuego – Piatti, Jurado, Baptistao – Moreno
Fernandez – Tono, Rodriguez, Postigo, Lopez – Lerma, Campana – Morales, Bardhi, Ivi – Alegria
