Levante 5/4 to beat Lugo in Tuesdays Copa del Rey tie
Competition: Copa del Rey
Market: Levante win
Odds: 5/4 @ Bet 365
Looking to gain an early advantage and move one step closer to the last 16 of this years Copa del Rey, La Liga outfit Levante will travel to Segunda side Lugo on Tuesday evening.
Starting with the hosts, after failing to secure a top half finish in the Segunda division last season, it has been a similar tricky start for Lugo. In their opening 11 matches, they have recorded just three wins, three draws and five defeats, scoring 11 and conceding 13 in return. With a points tally of 12 out of a possible 33, Lugo now sit just two points above the relegation zone in Spain’s second tier. Coming off the back of a 2-1 loss at home over the weekend, it is hard to see the Segunda strugglers causing an upset on Tuesday night.
As for the visitors, while a poor start to the season may have had Levante fearing another relegation battle, they have done a very impressive job of climbing up the La Liga table. In their opening 10 matches, they have won five, drawn one and lost four, scoring 16 and conceding 15 in return, no team outside of the top four holds a better attacking record than Levante. With a points tally of 16, only their goal difference prevents them from occupying a European position. As for their recent form, Levante have now won their last four matches on the bounce and their last away fixture saw them beat Real Madrid 2-1 at the Bernabeu.
