The match

Levante will be targeting a return to winning ways when they go head-to-head with Malaga in their next game in the Spanish second tier, the Segunda Division. Heading into this game, Levante, the home team, are fifth in the league table with 28 points, while Malaga travel for the clash in Valencia, having registered 14 points and are in 21st place. Levante are in good shape but their 1-1 draw with Lugo in the last game means they’ve lost key ground in their chase for promotion. That was their second straight draw and third in five matches, though Levante carry a nine-game unbeaten run coming into this game. They have six wins in those nine matches and have failed to score in only one of the nine. In the league, they have no clean sheet in the last three matches, but they are unbeaten in the last eight, winning five of them. Only one of their last five league matches has produced over 2.5 goals.

Malaga are coming from a 1-0 win over Ponferradina, earning three crucial points in their chase for survival. With another win here, they may rise from the relegation region, but that is dependent on other results. Malaga, on a four-game unbeaten streak, will feel they have what it takes to push the promotion chasers, but with just one clean sheet in their last five matches, they have a lot to improve on. Malaga have scored in each of their last five matches but on no occasion have they exceeded one goal in their last seven games. This is another area they will have to tackle. All of their last four matches have produced under 2.5 goals, and in league action, eight of their last 10 have also ended up in under 2.5 goals. Malaga have conceded more than a goal in just two of their last 10 league games, keeping clean sheets in only three. They’ve however failed to score in three of their last five away league matches.

Key Statistics

Levante are unbeaten in nine matches.

Levante have five wins in their last eight league games.

Malaga have failed to score in three of their last five away league games.

Four of Levante’s last five league matches have produced under 2.5 goals.

Eight of Malaga’s last 10 league matches have produced under 2.5 goals.

The bet of our experts

Levante are in great form going into this game and they only need to work on their defending, which has been the reason for dropped points in the last two matches. With a nine-game unbeaten run, they will step into this game as the favorites but they haven’t been scoring a lot of goals, which has also been an issue with Malaga. Another low scoring game is expected here, and under 2.5 goals will be a viable bet.
