Levante - Real Madrid
Category: Football Prediction
League: Spanish La Liga
Betting prediction: Over 1.5 goals 1st half
Starting Time: 02/03/2017 - 07:45 PM
Real Madrid's woes this season have been catalogued and analysed at length. However, there are signs lately that they have turned a corner, at least in the league. Levante, on the other hand, have been plummeting recently and look destined for a relegation battle likely to last until the final games of the season.
In the past 8 games, in which Real Madrid have been involved, there have been 32 goals, so an average of exactly 4 per game. In those games there have been at least 2 goals scored within the 5 first minutes of the first half. They tend to excel against very weak opposition, as shown by the 7-1 thrashing of Deportivo recently. This turnaround in form has coincided with a return to fitness and the starting lineup of Gareth Bale; whilst Ronaldo tends to score the goals, Bale is often involved and it is no surprise to see the number of goals per game rising.
While Levante are a decent enough side against lower opposition, once they play against the best they are usually outclassed. They have lost 3-0, 4-0 and 5-0 to Barcelona, Betis and Atletico this season and are simply not good enough to repel constant waves of attacks.
I am surprised by this price, I see it as a great value and would have expected odds closer to 1.8 so I would recommend a fairly strong bet.
SBObet have the best odds here so that is where I will be betting!
