The Levante coach, Paco Lopez, will face a key game in Mallorca this Saturday in search of reversing the bad streak with which the season began and with the memory of having solved a very similar crisis situation in 2019 and 2020.
Despite the fact that the president of Levante, Quico Catalan, ratified the Valencian coach ten days ago and from the club a message of calm about the future of Paco Lopez, the game in Mallorca, prior to the break in the League for national team competitions, seems fundamental for the coach.
Levante have not won yet, they are dragging a streak of fifteen games in a row in the League without knowing victory and are, with twelve goals against, one of the most scored teams in the First Division after having conceded at least one goal in the seven duels of the present championship.
Paco Lopez, which also has the casualties of Bardhi, Soldier, Cárdenas, Campaign and Malsa, and is pending the recovery of Vezo, he needs a reaction similar to the one he encountered in two previous stages on the Levante bench.
The first tough moment for the Silla (Valencia) coach, who arrived at Levante in March 2018, was in the final stretch of the 2018-19 season. A sequence of nine straight games without knowing the victory precipitated his team to the edge of the relegation zone and salvation was played in the last month of the League.
Levante consecutively beat Real Betis and Rayo Vallecano at the Ciutat de València and stayed in Girona, where they were able to overcome the initial goal of the Catalan team and certified their continuity in the highest category.
Paco Lopez a little less than a year ago lived a situation almost traced to the current one, since he signed a poor start to the season with just one win in the first ten games of the 2020-21 season, but reacted with a win against Getafe that was the point The beginning of a brilliant streak that culminated in qualification for the Copa del Rey semifinals.
