After three winners over the weekend our Spanish expert Phil Kitromilides believes Levante should be backed for a victory this evening at a generous price
Though the Costa Blanca club's league form has been patchy of late with just one win in their last six matches, they continue to fly high in the Europa league having comfortably progressed to the last 16 of the competition.
Osasuna, meanwhile, will be desperate to improve their atrocious away form by claiming only their second
away win of the season to put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone. Coral price a victory for the home side at 21/20 (2.05) while Osasuna are offered at 11/4 (3.75) and the draw available at 9/4 (3.25).
The temptation is to back Levante this evening and the fact that they are odds-against only enhances this temptation.
As previously mentioned, the Navarrans have been poor away from home all season, with their slight improvement in recent weeks down entirely to their form in their own stadium.
The side from Pamplona have lost nine of their 13 away matches this season, with just a solitary victory back in November, and while Levante have not been in the best of form they remain extremely tough to beat at home.
Indeed the only teams who have managed to prevent Levante from winning at home this season are the sides currently occupying the top four places in the league. Everyone else has been beaten at the Ciutat de Valencia and an Osasuna outfit with a poor away record are unlikely to cause them too many problems.
For a value bet trying backing Draw/Levante at 4/1 (5.00), which looks like an attractive option for punters wishing to gamble on bigger returns.
