Elche vs Levante
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 18 September 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero.
Both Elche and Levante have made poor starts to their respective campaigns, and are conceding goals in plenty. They have a combined one win between them in eight total league games, and it had come against the 19th placed Getafe.
By the looks of things, expect goals to come from either side of the pitch this weekend.
Elche were the last safe team in the La Laiga the last season, as they finished 17th in a table of 20, with a surplus of just two points over the relegation cut-off.
They had recorded a total of just eight wins, and had let in 55 goals through the campaign. As of now, they are on a poor run at home, and are struggling to keep clean sheets.
In the meantime, Levante had a total of nine wins the previous season, and had let in a total of 57 goals. They are also yet to register a win in 2021-22, and particularly on the road, they have been quite a mess for the past several months.
On top of that, goals have come quite frequently in h2h encounters over the years as well.
Likely, expect the BTTS wager to bring good returns this weekend at the Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero.

Elche vs Levante Prediction
Elche had recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Getafe. In the meantime, Levante were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Vallecano.
Going on, Elche were winless in 36 of their preceding 46 overall fixtures, and they had a total of just four clean sheets at home in the past 11-month period.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in nine of their past ten overall games, and they had a total of just one clean sheet in the former twenty match-ups. Moreover, they have also won just once on the road since February of 2020.
Considering these stats, and particularly the states of their defenses, along with the determination of either squad to put an end to their dismal runs – expect goals to come from both sides of the pitch
