2018/19 Spanish La Liga
Date: Monday, 27 August 2018
Kick-off at 19:15 UK/ 20:15 CET
Venue: Estadi Ciutat de Valencia.
Levante got off to a flying start in the 2018/19 La Liga campaign with a 3-0 away win at Real Betis. The full-time score line was against the run of play and it is surprising for a team that had under 25% of total ball possession to come away with a massive win from Estadio Benito Villamarín.
Last week’s result carry over Paco Lopez’s pre-season record where his team scored in every friendly game and finished with a four match unbeaten streak scoring 8 times.
Celta produced a colorless performance on opening day and end up sharing the spoils with visiting Espanyol. The visitors got the lead in the first half and the parity restored for the hosts from an own goal.
Encouraging signs for Antonio Mohamed as his team created 12 chances. On the flip side, a typically defensive away side created as many as 14 chances.
Almost like their Monday’s host, Celta Vigo scored in 4 of their 5 friendlies in the pre-season. However, they ended up without a win and conceding 7 in the last three.

Levante vs Celta Vigo Prediction
After the excellent start to the campaign, can Levante finally break the streak of defeats against Celta this week.
If we go with the form of either team carrying on from pre-season, there won’t be a better day to do this.
However, Levante’s habit of seeing less ball possession and coupled with Celta’s creativity in the final third means that this won’t be easy as it sound.
Thus, we go for both teams to score as our primary bet and draw no bet Levante as the alternate option.
