  • Los Granotas have lost all five visits to La Rosaleda in the top-flight, failing to score on four of those five visits.
  • Jose Luis Mendilibar has only won one of his nine meetings with Malaga as a La Liga manager (D4 L4), though that did come at La Rosaleda (0-1 with Osasuna in 2011).
  • Levante are the only La Liga team yet to claim a point and the only one yet to score this season.

  • Only at Barcelona (nine) have Levante played more games and lost them all than they have at Malaga (five) in their top-flight history.
  • Malaga are the first team to see three red cards in the opening two gameweeks since Xerez in 2009.
  • Jesus has conceded five goals in two league games with Levante; the same number as Keylor Navas conceded in his last eight games with the Granotas.
  • Malaga are the only team to have seen two penalties awarded in their games this season (one in favour, one against) but both have been missed (Luis Alberto missed one and Carlos Kameni saved one).
