Andrew Hughes thinks in-form Levante look good value for three points on Sunday in another cross-sport treble
“Levante are seven points clear of the relegation zone, but more significantly, are hitting form at exactly the right time…”
Time is running out for the bottom three in La Liga and for Las Palmas, a victory against the side immediately above them in the table is essential this weekend.
Levante are seven points clear of the relegation zone, but more significantly, are hitting form at exactly the right time. The arrival of Franciso Jose Hernandez has led to a dramatic improvement and a run of four games without defeat, including priceless wins over Eibar and Getafe has hauled them clear of trouble.
By contrast, Las Palmas continue to struggle. As revealed by the fascinating Infogol Preview they have the worst Expected Goals record in the division, giving up 2.2 XG per match so far, and their porous defence is likely to offer Levante plenty of opportunities. Back the home side to pick up another three points.
Bet 2: Back Kings XI Punjab to beat Delhi Daredevils at [1.95]
Delhi have traditionally filled the role of plucky losers at the IPL and while they have the players to fare better this time round, they are likely to struggle in their opener.
Kings XI have not only acquired the services of Chris Gayle and Aaron Finch, they've also landed Andrew Tye, and as Jamie Pacheco explains in his must-read IPL Preview, there are few better Twenty20 bowlers around.
Delhi have plenty of experience, with Gautam Gambhir, Amit Mishra and Mohammad Shami in their squad, but they lack the firepower of Kings XI and Tye will give the home side the edge with the ball.
Manly have had the better of this fixture in recent years, but the Titans hit form against the Broncos last time and if they can keep their penalty count under control they look good value to edge this one.
The most significant aspect of Gold Coast's victory on Easter Sunday was the defensive steel that had been absent from their first three games, and there will be no shortage of intensity from the home team for this fixture.
Although the Commonwealth Games has forced them to play this game in Gladstone, the Titans crowd will give the visitors - and Daly Cherry-Evans in particular - a hostile reception, and can roar their side to victory over a Sea Eagles team that has struggled in both of their away assignments so far.
