If you are not sure what is the best bet for Levante vs Espanyol, check our favourite betting tips for this duel:
Levante to Win
While Levante is still last in the standings and likely to be relegated to La Liga 2, the team has done much better lately since they recorded two wins in their last four games after they've gone with one win in the first 23 matches.
In any case, this match should be close and exciting, but we expect Levante to win this game. This might be their last chance to keep some of the hope alive when it comes to avoiding relegation.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
Three of the last four head-to-head duels between Levante and Espanyol have gone over 2.5 total goals and we can see that being the case on Saturday too.
In addition to this, Levante averaged 3.07 goals per game in the league so far, while Espanyol averaged 2.70 goals per game in La Liga this season.

Team news, form, and probable lineups for Levante vs Espanyol
This is a very close matchup and we expect an exciting game. So, here's a closer look at the teams ahead of their duel:
While Levante is still last in the league and while their chances of survival are far from great since they are seven points behind the first team outside of the relegation zone, the team did show some signs of life recently with two wins in the last four games. Of course, Levante will need much more of that if they are going to have any hope of staying up.
Meanwhile, Levante will have to manage without injured Jose Luis Morales, Shkodran Mustafi, Carlos Clerc, Sergio Postigo, and Jose Campana in their next game.
Levante predicted lineup:
Cardenas – Rober, Duarte, Caceres – Miramon, Melero, Pepelu, Son – De Frutos, Marti, Bardhi
The team from Barcelona finally broke their streak without a win in La Liga by defeating Getafe in the last round, so the team will have more confidence in their upcoming duel with Levante. Overall, Espanyol is 12th in the standings and it seems that they are safe from relegation since they are eight points ahead of the first team in the relegation zone.
Another positive for the team is the fact that only Manu Morlanes is slated to miss the next game through injury, while the rest of the team is healthy and available.
Espanyol predicted lineup:
D. Lopez – Gil, Calero, Cabrera, Pedrosa – Herrera, Bare – Puado, Darder, Vilhena – De Tomas
