Espanyol and Levante will square off at the RCDE Stadium on Sunday afternoon, with both sides looking for some consistency in this early part of the new La Liga campaign. Espanyol threw away a one-goal lead following Leo Baptistao’s first-half goal to succumb to a 2-1 defeat on the road at Alaves. Levante, on the other hand, only managed a 2-2 home draw against Valencia thanks to a brace from Marti Roger. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Espanyol have had a decent start to the season, having picked up four points from their first two league games. However, the Catalans have lost disappointingly at the hands of Alaves last time out, in a game in which they had the lead at half-time. The good thing is that Espanyol are now back at home where they have only lost once in their last nine league fixtures.
Levante, on the other hand, beat Betis 3-0 away from home on the opening round, but then they succumbed to a 1-2 home loss against Celta Vigo. However, they did well to secure a 2-2 home draw against Valencia prior to the International break. In addition, Levante have been a decent side on the road of late, having won four and drawn one of their last five trips.
Espanyol has been a tough nut to crack on home soil last season and we fancy them to get back to winning ways in La Liga here. Our betting tips and predictions expect Espanyol to win at odds 1.72.

Correct Score odds
Espanyol looked pretty good at the back throughout this La Liga campaign despite losing on the road at Alaves a fortnight ago. On home soil, Espanyol haven’t conceded more than once in each of their last nine games across all competitions. However, the visitors did well to score at least one goal in each of their last ten trips. Our correct score fancies would back Espanyol to win 2-1 at odds 8.50.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Both these two sides have been involved in high-scoring affairs in the previous La Liga round. Actually, each of Levante’s three games so far this season have seen more than three goals. Our total goals prediction expect over 2.5 goals at odds 1.95.

First Goalscorer odds
Leo Baptistao has only scored eight goals in 36 games for Espanyol last season, but he has been the team’s most prolific player in front of goal this term. Baptistao has already helped the team with one goal and one assist and he will be hungry for more. Our first goalscorer prediction is Leo Baptistao at odds 6.00.
