The 2021-22 edition of La Liga is back in action with another set of matches this weekend as Elche take on Levante on Saturday. Both teams have struggled this year and will need to step up this weekend.
Elche are in 10th place in the La Liga standings and have not been at their best this season. The away side edged Getafe to a 1-0 victory last weekend and will want a similar result from this fixture.
Levante are in 14th place in the league table at the moment and are yet to win a game this season. The Valencia-based outfit played out a 1-1 draw with Rayo Vallecano last week and will need to return to winning ways in this game.
Elche vs Levante Head-to-Head
Levante have an impressive record against Elche and have won 12 games out of 26 matches played between the two teams. Elche have managed only three victories against Levante and will need to improve their record on Saturday.
The previous meeting between the two teams took place last month and ended in a 2-1 victory for Levante. Elche gave a good account of themselves on the day but will need to be more clinical this weekend.
