Sevilla vs Levante Prediction & Betting tips
On September 15, 2020, both teams played a friendly match against each other. Levante surprisingly led away 2-0 at halftime in Andalusia, but ultimately had to admit defeat 2: 3 after a strong second pass by the Nervionenses. Two weeks later, both teams meet again in La Liga. With the difference that this time the result counts.
In the run-up to the encounter between Seville and Levante, the odds of the bookmakers clearly turn in the direction of the Andalusians, which can be seen from the odds comparison of the betting base.
It is not really surprising if the Andalusians’ record against Levante is taken into account. Of the last 14 home games at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, Sevilla only lost one game against the guests from Valencia. The Nervionenses were able to win the last three home games – with a total goal difference of 9: 1.
After the impressions from the mentioned test match, we trust the guests from the Spanish east coast to at least score the goal in Andalusia, although we consider the away win to be very unlikely.
The Sevilla Fútbol Club played a really strong 2019/20 season under the former Spanish national coach and Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui. The red and whites were able to finish La Liga in fourth place with ten points ahead of pursuers Villarreal and thus secure their ticket for the UEFA Champions League.
As if that weren’t enough, the men from Andalusia also won the Europa League for the sixth time. In the final tournament in Germany they won one after the other against Rome, Wolverhampton, Manchester United and Inter Milan.
So it’s no wonder that the Nervionenses started the new season with a lot of tailwind despite a short break. After the start of the league against Elche was postponed, there was a 1: 2 defeat in extra time against FC Bayern in the Super Cup.
On Sunday, Julen Lopetegui’s men in La Liga were back in their usual strength. Away at Cádiz, Sevilla scored a 3-1 win after a 1-0 deficit, with the final two goals only being scored in stoppage time. Once again, the self-proclaimed pride of Andalusia showed a lot of patience and morality.
Now it is important to transport this momentum into the home debut of the 2020/21 season, when Levante is a team at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán that has only won one of the last 14 guest games here.
With the exception of the 2011/12 season, in which Levante UD once landed in sixth place in the final table, the team from Valencia played mostly against relegation in the current millennium. In 2005, 2008 and most recently in 2016 it even went down to La Liga 2. But mostly one year was enough to return to the top class.
Last season the Granotas (in English: the frogs), as the men from Levante are also called, because in earlier times the stadium lawn was often teeming with frogs when it was raining heavily, but it was a very quiet year.
In the end, 49 points were enough for twelfth place. The gap to the first relegation place was a comfortable 13 points. An achievement that now needs to be built on. The extension of the contract by successful coach Paco López until summer 2022 was all the more positive.
Only on the transfer market would the supporters of the blue-reds have wished for a little more activity. So far, in addition to two additional players from La Liga 2, only Jorge de Frutos and Dani Gómez from Real Madrid are on the credit side. Borja Mayoral’s loan could not be extended, despite the fact that the 23-year-old was practically placed in the storm and contributed nine goals to the success in the previous season.
Once again, the club from Valencia lacks the quality in terms of breadth, although the basic structure looks quite promising. Although the Frogs lost 4-2 in the Valencian derby against Valencia CF on matchday one, they already brought their quality to the field last Sunday when they won 3-1 away from newly promoted Osasuna after 0-1 deficit.
We definitely trust the blue-reds to score the away goal, which is why it makes sense to play the tip “Both teams score: yes” at Sevilla against Levante. Only the away record could be significantly better. In the 2019/20 season, Paco López’s team only won five of the 19 long-distance league games.
