  • Date: 16/09/2022
  • Competition: Segunda Division
  • KO: 21:00 CET
  • Venue: Estadio Ciudad de Valencia (Valencia)

Following their relegation to the Segunda Division, Levante will be looking to maintain their unbeaten start when they welcome Cartagena to the Estadio Ciudad de Valencia (Valencia).

Dropping down from the Primera Division following a five-year stay, the Frogs have made a decent start to life in the lower division, winning their 2 home fixtures and drawing all 3 of their away matches thus far. As a result, Levante finds themselves in 5th spot, level on 9 points with a visiting Cartagena side that has won 3 and lost 2 of their first 5 fixtures.

Levante vs Cartagena Betting Tips: Levante to win

On their own patch, Levante have looked strong at this early juncture of the season, scoring a 2:0 win against Tenerife before a 4:1 hammering against Villrreall II. 

In contrast, visiting Cartagena have struggled on their travels since the end of last season, having lost 6 of their last 10 since mid-February, although goals have been a prominent feature of their away matches, with 9 of their last 11 Segunda Division road matches seeing BTTS. 

Indeed, on their travels, Cartagena have struggled for clean sheets with just 1 in their last 21 away league outings since the start of last season, and we expect Levante to take advantage of those defensive frailties this weekend.

Scoring 6 goals in their last 2 home matches, Levante have yet to win on the road, suggesting their home form will be vital if they are to make an immediate return to the top flight next season.

Ultimately, Cartagena might have the attacking threat to make this a decent contest, but with home advantage and boasting more quality in the final third, we expect Levante to maintain their unbeaten form with another home victory.
