Preview: Getafe vs. Levante - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Sunday's La Liga clash between Getafe and Levante, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Paco Lopez's struggling Levante side travel to the capital this weekend for their La Liga clash with relegation-threatened Getafe at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

Having been dragged into the relegation fight at a late stage, Getafe could potentially find themselves in a dangerous area if they fail to pick up three points this weekend.


Match preview

Following a string of poor results, with the club losing their last three league outings, Jose Bordalas's Getafe must now fight for their top-flight credentials, with a number of the teams around them in far superior form.

Getafe have managed to pick up just four points from their last six games, and Bordalas's men have also scored just six goals in their last 10 league outings.

All in all, it is no surprise that Los Azulones now find themselves in this precarious position.

Currently 16th in the table with 34 points to their name, Getafe could realistically drop down to 18th if results go against them this weekend.

Fortunately for Bordalas, on Sunday they line up against one of the few sides in the league that are in worse form than them.

Lopez's Levante have seriously dropped off this season - a classic symptom of midtable mediocrity.

The Valencian outfit have not won a league game since early April and have picked up just two points from their last six games.

However, things are beginning to look up for Lopez's men, who have drawn their last two games and scored five goals in the process.

Against Barcelona last time out, Levante responded well to going two goals down in the first half and fought the Catalans hard, equalising in the 60th minute and then coming from behind again to equalise in the 83rd minute thanks to a strike from Sergio Leon.

Levante showed metal in that fixture, and Lopez will hope his side can take that form into this clash.

The good news for Bordalas is that centre-back David Timor will be available for selection after serving his suspension.

The bad news is that forward Dario Poveda and midfielder Cucho Hernandez will both likely be unavailable for this tie due to injury.

Levante will be without Nemanja Radoja and Nikola Vukcevic, who are both out due to injury.

Having scored the equaliser last time out, Leon could start this tie in midfield.

Getafe possible starting lineup:
Soria; Suarez, Djene, Timor, Olivera; Iglesias, Maksimovic, Alena, Cucurella; Angel, Unal

Levante possible starting lineup:
Fernandez; Jorge Miramon, Vezo, Duarte, Tono; De Frutos, Rober, Melero, Leon; Roger, Morales


SM words green background

We say: Getafe 1-1 Levante

With both sides playing poorly at the moment, this one is particularly tough to call. We think it will be a gritty affair with a few moments of drama, but ultimately we are going for a draw here.
