Match Preview

Both Levante and Getafe have eyes on La Liga’s (LL) sought after European spots and should be gunning for victory in this clash. However, with three of the last four H2Hs held here ending 1-1, and six of Getafe’s 11 LL away fixtures this season finishing the same way, those all-important three points could be elusive.
Having conceded an average of 2.1 goals per home match (the division’s second worst average), how Levante’s defence performs will be critical. Three of their four LL home victories were accompanied by a clean sheet, whereas in contrast, Levante have conceded at least two goals in every home defeat or draw this season.
More than half of those goals (52%) were conceded by Levante in the 15 minutes before and following half-time; though notably, opponents Getafe have netted just three total goals during the same time period across their 11 top-flight away fixtures.
The visitors’ road trips this season have been marked by one particular trend – both teams scoring. That’s now happened in ten of Getafe’s last 11 competitive away games, with ‘El Geta’ unbeaten in each of those ten matches (W3, D7). However, Getafe did lose their last LL away outing as they fell 2-0 at Atlético Madrid last week, in what was their first away defeat since a 2-0 loss at Real Madrid back in August.
Players to watch: Defender Coke has been chipping in with goals recently, scoring three across Levante’s last five competitive home games. Meanwhile, in-form Jorge Molina has four goals in his last four games for Getafe.
Stat attack: Each of Levante’s last five competitive home matches featured a goal after the 80th minute.
Only one of Getafe’s last seven LL away games saw goals scored in both halves.
The last five H2Hs (at all venues) featured under 2.5 goals.
