Levante vs Rayo Vallecano
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 4th May 2019
Kick-off at 12.00 UK/ 13.00 CET
Venue: Estadi Ciutat de València (Valencia).
Levante did try their maximum to deny Barcelona the chance to confirm the league title last match-day. But despite their persistence, Ernesto Valverde’s men found a way to break the deadlock. As things stand, Levante is just two points above the cut-off line, and with three games to go, they really are playing with fire. It helps though, that they are pitted against another relegation-battler this week.
Vallecano is high on confidence after beating none other than Real Madrid just the last day and will try their very best to shed the relegation tag with a great performance this Saturday. While it may worry their fans they are on the road, the team really does not have anything more to lose and will give the fight of their lives.

Levante vs Rayo Vallecano Prediction
Vallecano lost their last seven away games in a row and conceded two or more goals in every one of it. Levante, meanwhile, was unbeaten in their last five home ties, and in nine of their last eleven. In face-to-face encounters, the home teams have shown the upper hand for the last few years. In fact, the last six such games in a row saw the hosts taking the three points. Also, Levante won the last two meetings at this venue, and the last time they failed to win against Vallecano at home, was five years back.
It’s logical to expect a home win this weekend. But do note that Vallecano is facing relegation, and time is fast running out for them. Moreover, they just defeated Real Madrid and has loads of confidence to tap into. Finally, five of the last six h2h ties had goals from both teams, and Levante conceded two or more goals in five of their last seven home fixtures. Expect goals at either end of the pitch.
