The 2020-21 edition of La Liga returns to the fold with another set of fixtures this weekend as Levante lock horns with Osasuna at the Ciutat de Valencia on Sunday. Both teams have been fairly inconsistent this season and will need to step up to the plate in the coming months.
Levante are currently in 10th place in the La Liga standings and have been occasionally excellent this season. The Valencia-based side played out a 2-2 draw with Granada and will want to return to winning ways this weekend.
Osasuna, on the other hand, are in 15th place in the league table and will need to take it up a notch this season. The Pamplona giants edged Eibar to a 2-1 victory last week and will have to put in a similar effort on Sunday.
Levante vs Osasuna Head-to-Head
Osasuna have a mediocre record against Levante and have won eight matches out of a total of 17 games played between the two teams. Levante have managed seven victories against Osasuna and will want to level the playing field this weekend.
The previous meeting between the two teams took place last year and ended in a comfortable 3-1 victory for Levante. Roger Marti found the back of the net on the day and will want to make his mark on this game.
