Levante welcomes Villarreal in a match from the second round of Spanish La Liga
Levante welcomes Villarreal in a match from the second round of Spanish La Liga. Both teams are aiming to win their first wins for the season. Let’s take a look at this clash in Valencia in our La Liga predictions.
Levante kicked off their season with a defeat. Paco Lopez’ team visited Deportivo Alaves, but got beaten with 0-1 by the hosts. The only goal in the game was scored soon after the start of the first half, when Joselu used an assist from Aleix Vidal and put the ball in the net.
Of course, it’s too early for Levante to feel worried. The season is just starting, so we are still about to see how this team is going to perform in La Liga. Last season Levante escaped relegation and finished 14th in the league. For them everything is going to be fine as long as they keep their place in the division.
Villarreal had a real thriller in the first round of the league last week. The Yellow Submarine hosted the newcomer Granada at home and the game ended with a 4-4 draw. Clearly it was the best game for the week in Spain. We guess that Villarreal still can’t believe that they scored four goals in this match and they still didn’t win it.
The veteran Santi Cazorla opened the score for Villarreal, while Moi Gomez, Gerard Moreno and Samuel Chukwueze also scored for the hosts. But clearly the team’s defense didn’t do very well in this game, conceding four goals at home. The manager Javi Calleja won’t be satisfied with the performance of his defenders, that’s for sure. One of them is the veteran Raul Albiol, who arrived this summer. Albiol played the whole game, but we doubt he’s happy with his debut.
These are our La Liga predictions for the game between Levante and Villarreal. We wish you good luck.
