evante take on the visitors Espanyol at “Ciutat de Valencia” in the second-leg fight of the 1/8 stage of the Copa del Rey. The match will be played in Valencia on Thursday, January 11th.
In the previous round of the Copa del Rey “Les Granotes” knocked out Girona with 3:1 aggregated score. The team has gained four defeats, four draws and two wins in the home battles. The club’s attack looks rather unconvincing, having scored only 10 goals so far which can also be applied to the defense which has conceded 15 goals already. Levante deserved 0:0 draw against Leganes, 1:2 loss to Athletic Bilbao and 1:1 draw vs. Girona in the most recent matches played at “Ciutat de Valencia”.

Espanyol beat Tenerife with 3:2 scoreline in the previous round of the Copa del Rey. The team conducted eight encounters on the road resulting in four defeats and four draws. The side’s offense looks miserable with only five goals scored in this season just like its defense which has conceded 15 goals. In the latest away games “Periquitos” earned 2:2 draw against Las Palmas alongside with two failures vs. Eibar 1:3 and Alaves 0:1.
The reverse fixture between the rivals was finished in 2:1 Levante’s triumph, therefore, the hosts have slightly better chances for promoting further in the tournament. As for Espanyol – they have minimum chances for qualifying into the next stage as they play horrible on the road. Thus, I would give an advantage to the hosting team.
Prediction for the match: Levante to win with 0.0 Asian handicap.
