      Analysis: Levante vs Málaga (30 December 2015)
      « Reply #1 on: December 28 2015, 14:24 »

      Levante and Málaga meet at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia, in a match for the 17th round of the Primera División. The head‑to‑head history at this stadium, favours the home team, since in the last 6 head‑to‑heads they won 5 and lost 1. Accordingly, in the last head‑to‑head played at this stadium, for the Primera División, on 07‑02‑2015, Levante won by (4‑1). David Barral (26' , 37' and 62' ) and K. Uche (75' ) scored for Levante and Juanmi (24' ) for Málaga. The home/away factor is worth special atention, since although this is a match between 20th and 13th of the league table, it’s also a match between the 18th best team in home matches and the 17th best in away matches.

      Analysis of Levante

      The home team is currently in the 20th position of the league, with 11 points won, after 2 wins, 5 draws and 9 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in a home match against Granada, by (1‑2). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Athletic Club, by (2‑0). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since they have won 5 points in away matches, with 5 goals scored and 16 conceded, against 6 points won at their stadium, with 7 goals scored and 13 conceded. In the last 8 home league matches Levante has a record of 1 win, 3 draws and 4 losses, so they have won 6 points out of 24 possible.

      They haven’t won any of the last 4 home matches for this competition. In their home league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑1 (5 out of 8 matches). They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. They haven't been able to score the first goal. In fact, they have only opened up the score in 3 of the last 16 matches for the Primera División, they have reached half‑time in advantage in 2 of those 3 matches and have held on to the lead in 2. They have conceded the first goal in 12 of their 16 matches for this competition, and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 10 home matches for all competitions there are 2 periods that stand out: they have scored 4 of their 8 goals between minutes (46'‑60') and 4 of their 8 goals between (76'‑90').

      Levante comes to this match lacking motivation, due to the latest negative results: 3 consecutive losses. The home team is strong in both defensive and offensive set pieces. Coach Rubi should present a defensive strategy and try to explore counterattacks. Deyverson is the best scorer of the team, with 4 goals scored this season. Trujillo and Víctor Casadesús are still recovering from injuries, while Toño and Feddal are suspended.

      Analysis of Málaga

      The away team is currently in the 13th position of the league, with 17 points won, after 4 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Rayo Vallecano, by (1‑2). In the last match, they won in a home match against Atlético Madrid, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, since they have won 5 points in away matches and 12 at their stadium, with 8 goals scored and 5 conceded at home, against 2 goals scored and 9 conceded in away matches. In the last 8 away league matches Málaga has a record of 1 win, 2 draws and 5 losses, so they have won 5 points out of 24 possible. In their away matches there are a few frequent results: at half‑time 1‑0 (3 out of 8 matches) and 0‑0 (3 out of 8 matches) and after the 90' 1‑0 (3 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 6 of the last 8 matches for this competition have ended with Under 2,5 goals. This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first. They have opened up the score in only 4 of the last 16 matches for the Primera División, they have reached half‑time in front in 2 of those 4 matches and have held on to the lead in 3. In 16 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 8 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

      Málaga comes to this match motivated by a home win over Atlético de Madrid: Charles scored the winning goal. Despite this win, the away team has a few issues to improve, like the ability to keep ball possession. The best scorer of the team is striker Charles, with 6 goals scored. In this match coach Javi Gracia will have all players available.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario is that there won’t be many goals. We expect a balanced match, with a lot of struggle in the midfield and few goal opportunities, since both teams should present defensive strategies to get at least one point.
