On their return to the Spanish top flight this season the hosts are still searching for their first win after two draws and two defeats, and Paddy Power price them at 20/21 (1.95) to pick up three points. Levante for their part have been their usual battle-hardened selves un-attractive but on occasions effective.
They are offered at 11/4 (3.75) to pick up what would be only their third away win of the year.
Yet. this match has been chosen for one specific reason and that is to back Almeria in the goal scoring market.
The Andalusians have been consistently finding the back of the net and investing in them to score over 1.5 goals at evens (2.00) looks an excellent bet.
Indeed, it is a selection that has paid out in all of Almeria's games so far this season and has every chance of doing so again.
Levante have kept just one clean sheet on the road in 13 matches and their somewhat immobile defence could be exposed with the pace of Almeria's in form forward Rodri who has four goals in four games, making this a highly attractive option for investment.
