Espanyol hosts Levante in a game from the 4th round of the Spanish La Liga. Let’s take a look at it in our picks for today.
Espanyol is currently 7th in the La Liga standings with 4 points won and a record of one win, one draw and one loss. Los Pericos began their campaign with a draw against Celta in Vigo, which was followed by a great win against Valencia at home. In the last round, Espanyol suffered their first defeat for the season, losing against Deportivo Alaves.
Leo Baptistao opened the score for Espanyol at the Estadio de Mendizorroza, but with goals from Borja Baston and Ruben Sobrino, Espanyol managed to clinch the win.
Levante, on the other hand, are currently 4th in La Liga, also having 4 points won, but a better goal difference. They started the season with a win against Real Betis, which was followed by a loss against Celta at home. In the last round, Levante managed to win a point against Valencia with a 2-2 draw at home ground.
Roger Marti scored twice for Levante against Los Che, but Denis Cheryshev and Dani Parejo found the net behind Oier. Levante finished the game with 10 men on the pitch after Coke’s red card fifteen minutes before the end.
Last season Espanyol and Levante met twice in La Liga. Espanyol clinches a 2-0 win at Valencia, while the game in Barcelona between these two sides ended with a 1-1 draw.
This is our look at the La Liga match between Espanyol and Levante at the RCDE Stadium in Cornella de Llobregat in Barcelona. It’s hard to pick a favourite here as both teams started the season in a pretty much the same way. But Espanyol has the advantage to play at home, of course.
