Levante faces Real Valladolid at the Estadio Ciudad de Valencia
Levante faces Real Valladolid at the Estadio Ciudad de Valencia in a match from the third round of La Liga. We are going to spend few minutes to make a preview of this game in our La Liga predictions.
Levante started the new season in La Liga with a defeat, but in the second round they achieved their first win as well. Paco Lopez’ boys hosted Villarreal at home and achieved a 2-1 win in front of their fans.
But it wasn’t easy. Villarreal scored first in the match, thanks to Gerard Moreno’s early strike after just three hours of playing. Everything changed between the 68th and the 73th minute when Levante turned the whole game around. For just five minutes the hosts recieved two penalty kicks in their favour. Both times it was Roger Marti who took the ball and both times he beat Villarreal’s goalkeeper Andres Fernandez.
In the same time Real Valladolid are currently 4th in the league with 4 points won so far. It was a really positive start of the new season for the Pucelanos, who are owned by the Brazilian legend Ronaldo. Last week Valladolid visited Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu and won a point after a 1-1 draw with Los Blancos.
Both goals in the game were scored in the last minutes. Karim Benzema opened the score for Real Madrid, but Sergi Guardiola equalised for Valladolid after an assist from Oscar Piano. Few people expected that Real Valladolid could trouble Zinedine Zidane’s boys, but this happened at the Bernabeu.
Both Levante and Real Valladolid had positive experiences in the previous round, so it’s pretty difficult to make a prediction for this game. In our La Liga predictions we can say that we expect both teams to score at least one goal in this match. But who will win it?
