After both got off to a disappointing start to the new season, Levante and Celta Vigo will face each other in an important La Liga duel on Tuesday.
With only one point from the first five games, the guests are in 18th place in the La Liga table, while their hosts are only three points ahead and do not have to win yet.
Prediction for this match
Levante started the new season with consecutive draws, first with an equalizer from Cadiz in the 97th minute before taking a far more laudable point Roger Marti, José Campana and Rober Pier came into the scorers list in the 3-3 draw against the champions Real Madrid.
Paco Lopezs side suffered a 1-0 loss to Real Sociedad before drawing again in a row on Tuesday.
They were again the victim of a late drama against newly promoted Rayo Vallecano when Sergio Guardiola scored the equalizer in the 92nd minute, as it depends on a 1-0 win before José Luis Morales saved a point in a 1-1 draw against Elche on Saturday.
After failing last season’s urge to finish in the first half, the Graontas will be desperate to climb the table and make another push this time, but they face a Celta Vigo side in a very similar situation.
The guests battled Levante for similar spots for most of last season but ended up far stronger and eventually secured eighth place.
However, the new campaign didn’t start out well for Eduardo Coudet‘s men as they sit on only one point out of five games.
This was due to a goalless draw with Osasuna, but Os Celestes have lost three games in a row since then, first being beaten 1-0 by Athletic Bilbao before being beaten 5-2 by Real Madrid.
They now come into play after a 2-1 home loss to Cadiz, like Santi MinaThe goal in the 64th minute was not enough for a turn, the guests went 2-1 thanks to goals in the first half Alfonso Espino and Anthony Lozano.
Os Celestes fell on the relegation places straight away and knows that they have to shift into gear quickly to avoid a fight for the bottom of the table at the end of the season.

Levante has a long list of injuries to deal with as an attacker Roberto Soldado, Jorge de Frutos and Enis Bardhi will be absent alongside midfielder Jose Campana.
Those losses add to Lopez’s dependence on star man Jose Luis Morales, who equalized last time out.
There will probably be two of him in the front Dani Gomez, with wings Carlos Clerc and son also moving forward.
Despite the sluggish start, Celta Vigo has largely stuck to its established core of players so far, and Coudet should continue to believe in players like them Iago Aspas, Santi Mina, Franco Cervi and Denis Suarez in attack.
You should provide a clean health certificate while the manager has to make decisions Nolito and Okay Yokusluwho is pushing for places in the starting XI.
Levante possible starting line-up:
Cardenas; Postigo, Duarte, Vezo; Son, Pepelu, Malsa, Martinez, Clerc; Gomez, Morales
Celta Vigo possible starting line-up:
Dituro; Mallo, Murillo, Fontan, Galan; Tapia; Suarez, Cervi, Nolito; Aspas, Mina
Probability: Levante 1-1 Celta Vigo
While Levante has got off to a better start to the season, losing to his squad arguably gives an established Celta Vigo XI the edge and that could go either way.
We opt for a draw with a low score, as the teams could cancel each other out in their bids for the table position.
