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 have to step up this weekend.
Elche is in 10th place in the La Liga standings and has not been the best this season. The away team gave Getafe a 1-0 victory last weekend and will have a similar result from this match.
Levante are currently in 14th place in the league table and are missing another match this season. The Valencia-based outfit played a 1-1 draw with Rayo Vallecano last week and will have to return to winning ways in this game.
Elche vs. Levante Head-to-Head
Levante has an impressive record against Elche and has won 12 matches out of 26 matches played between the two teams. Elche have only managed three wins against Levante and need to improve their record on Saturday.
The previous meeting between the two teams took place last month and ended with a 2-1 victory for Levante. Elche gave a good account of himself on the day, but will have to be more clinical this weekend.
