Home side Levante will be looking to place themselves further away from the relegation zone to insure their 1st division spot for next season. New manager Paco López, who was appointed Levante manager after the club drew with Espanyol, won his first game against Getafe and has stated that safety is at 38 points.

On the flip side, Eibar are making a good effort to push into the European places. They sit a mere 5 points from Villarreal and the Europa League spot, but they still rely on both Girona and Real Betis dropping some points before they can get anywhere near a continental competition. With a population of under 30,000 people, it’s a great time to be an Eibar supporter.

Both teams need the points- but Levante are actually in need of them. Despite the late kick-off, the Valencian side have the home advantage, and the players will be desperate to continue proving to their new manager why they should be playing.
