Levante – Huesca | 02/04/2021

Huesca will be looking to move off the bottom of La Liga when they continue their 2020-21 campaign away to Levante on Friday night. The visitors will enter the contest off the back of a goalless draw with Osasuna before the international break, while Levante suffered a 2-0 defeat away to Real Betis in their last match.

Levante’s pursuit of consecutive La Liga (LL) wins in 2020/21 remains elusive thanks to some inconsistent football which has all but ended their hopes of European football next season. Furthermore, despite losing just once at home since the start of December, Levante possess a below-average win-rate of 40% as a LL home favourite this term (W4, D5, L1).

The hosts also remain too dependent on their attacking unit to claim points, particularly at home, where their win over Valencia last time out here was not only their first clean sheet from nine LL home outings since early December, but was also their first 1-0 victory of the LL season at any venue. Notably, their last four LL home wins have all been by a one-goal margin.

Interestingly, when excluding their recent trip to Barcelona (Mar 15), Huesca have not suffered any other LL defeats by a margin of two or more goals since January 20. That loss to Barcelona was also the only match during that ten-game period in which Huesca were trailing at HT, whilst both times Huesca led at the break since Jan 20 saw them convert their good start into victory.

With no more than one goal to their name in all but one of their last seven LL away trips (W1, D1, L5), if their defence can repeat the clean sheet they managed at home vs Osasuna in the last round, Huesca are likely to add to their tally of 18 LL games this season (64.29%) which produced under 2.5 goals.
