Match Predictions and Betting Odds
Levante’s Last Match
Levante played away against Getafe on 16 May. In that game, Getafe took an early lead via a strike by Carles Alena. Gonzalo Melero helped Levante draw level on 30 minutes. Getafe had to rely on Takefusa Kubo’s late goal (84 minutes) to take away full points from the match.
Cadiz’s Last Match
Cadiz hosted Elche at Nuevo Estadio Ramon de Carranza, on 16 May. The home team went 1-0 up, on 14 minutes, thanks to Jose Mari’s goal. The sides went into the break with Cadiz leading 1-0. But a strong second half from Elche saw them score through Pere Milla (57th minute), Diego Gonzalez (63rd minute) and Fidel (87th) minute to win a comprehensive victory.
Last Game Between Cadiz and Levante
Cadiz got off to a great start when they were put 1-0 ahead on 4 minutes by Perea. But Levante fought back with an equaliser 4 minutes later via a goal by Marti. On 11 minutes, Marti got his second strike to put the visitors ahead 2-1. Cala scored for Cadiz on 27 minutes to make it 2-2. With no further goals in that game, that was the final score.
We expect this to be a relatively high-scoring game. Levante have already avoided relegation and are likely to play freely. Equally, Cadiz have an incentive to play an attacking game, as a win in the match would keep them in contention for a top 10 finish. The home side are likely to miss the services of Nemanja Radoja, Sergio Postigo, and Nikola Vukcevic, all injured. Cadiz find Fernandez, Sanchez, Cala and Akapo on the injured list. Jose Mari and Fali who are serving red card bans will also not feature for Cadiz in the match against Levante.
There is nothing to choose between the sides in the head-to-head stats. In five games between them, both have won one match each, with the remaining three games drawn.
Bookmakers’ odds favour Levante to win the game, with quoted odds of 3 /4. Both a draw and Cadiz win are considered equally improbable with odds of 16/5.
In our Cadiz vs Levante match prediction, we believe that the match between Levante and Cadiz on May 21 will end in a draw.
Spectators could be in for an exciting Cadiz vs Levante game on 12 May, with both teams playing freely. Levante’s home advantage could be off-set somewhat by Cadiz’s aim to finish among the top 10.
