Levante Preview – Can Levante end a run of five home matches without a win to move into the top 10?

Levante will have to pick themselves up from what has been a really disappointing last 10 days. An agonising defeat in the semi-final of the Copa Del Rey against Athletic Bilbao will undoubtedly leave a mark so the 1-0 defeat away to Real Sociedad which followed it is probably to be expected. That loss to Sociedad ended an eight game unbeaten away run for Paco Lopez’ men. A run which seen them win in Madrid against both Atletico and Real.

That is the ability of this underrated outfit and is they level that they will be hoping to get back to in this one and for the remainder of the campaign.


Our betting prediction:
Roger Marti to score in 90 minutes

The immediate aim is clearly to get back to winning ways but they will be hoping to finish in the top 10 come the end of the campaign. If they are to do that then this is the sort of game which will be pivotal to that hope. Playing on Friday evening means they can go five clear of their opponents, at the same timing jumping above three clubs and into eighth spot.
Levante’s biggest frustration in terms of their league form is the number of games they have drawn at home. Seven is the most of any team in La Liga and even if half of them had been wins they could easily be challenging for a European finish.

Valencia Preview – Are poor travellers Valencia set for what would be a rare away victory?

The stripping of Valencia’s playing assets and general downsizing of the footballing side of the clubs means their aspirations these days are a lot more modest than they have been down the years. With 12 games of the league season left, they sit in 12th spot. Nowhere near a challenge of the European spots but probably just about safe from relegation due to having an eight point cushion over third bottom Eibar.

Like their opponents, the challenge is just attempting to finish as high as possible and a win here would take them above Levante and into the top 10 ahead of the rest of the weekend card.

One of the key reasons as to why Valencia are in their current position is their underwhelming away form. From 13 away matches in La Liga this season they have won just two – Away to Real Valladolid and Real Sociedad. Their seven defeats on the road is the joint second most in the league. It doesn’t inspire a huge amount of confidence coming into this one.

Valencia also average less than a goal a game on their travels so the area for improvement is apparent.

Levante vs Valencia Betting Advice

This is a bit of a puzzle to solve. Levante are doing their best to avoid winning games at home of late (just one win in their last five) but face a Valencia team who win even less often on the road. Your eye is drawn to Levante’s achievements against the big Madrid teams in recent weeks, however and that is definitely the best form of late.


Key Facts – Levante vs Valencia Betting Tip

  • Levante’s seven home draws is the highest of any team in the division
  • Valencia have won only two away games in La Liga all season, scoring just 12 goals
  • These teams opened their campaigns against each other with Valencia running out 4-2 winners


Before this winless run Levante had one four straight at home between December and January and whilst they’ve not been able to convert draws into wins, they’re hard to beat and at odds against facing a team below them then I’m happy to side with them this time.
