With just one win in the last eight league games, Levante can do with a win against an equally unimpressive Eibar this weekend. For they are falling down the table with each passing week and negative result. The onus is on the players and the managers now to check the form and turn their fortunes around during this pivotal period in the season.
Levante don't need to look further to see good reasons to raise the game. They finished the 2015-16 season at the bottom, getting relegated to the Segunda Division as a result. Though they were back in the La Liga after just one-season, the obscurity of falling down to the 2nd league could be a prolonged enduring period.
Despite the current torrid run, the Granotas should be fine come the end of the season. Not only Paco Lopez's men will be playing six of their last 10 games at home but most of the matches are against teams currently lying in the bottom half of the table.
What better than to start the process with a home game against a team which has won just once on the road this season.
As mentioned above, Eibar have won just once on the road this season, losing six and drawing the other six in the 13 away matches.
But despite the away woes, Eibar are still a huge 10 points clear of the relegation zone. With 35 points from 28 games, Eibar are 11th in the table.
Their decent looking position on the table is because of their incredible home form, having won 7 and drawing five times in the 15 home games.
