Levante vs Real Valladolid
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Saturday, 31 August 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Estadi Ciutat de València (Valencia).
Both teams finished next to each other in the table last season, in the bottom tier. But this time around, they have made an impressive start, and especially, Valladolid. They began with a win on the road, and against the free-flowing Betis of all teams.
Adding more charm, the winner had come in the 89th minute of the tie. The next match-day, they held the mighty Real Madrid to a 1-1 draw at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Now, the team takes the road once again, to Valencia, to lock horns with Levante. The hosts had lost their opener against Alaves on the road, for a solitary goal. But the group bounced back in style against Villarreal in the next fixture.
The visitors had found the back of the net in the third minute of the game itself and led for the majority of the time. But towards the end of the match, the hosts netted two quick-fire goals to post a 2-1 win.
Levante vs Real Valladolid Head-to-head (h2h)

Levante vs Real Valladolid Prediction
After the huge start that Valladolid has made, there seems no reason why they should stumble against Levante of all teams. Tackling Real Betis, and Real Madrid in consecutive match-days have rightfully improved their confidence, and against the hosts who have had some problems in delivering consistent performances, the visitors are deemed to have the upper hand.
As such, a Double Chance on the high-flying Valladolid should bring considerable returns.
Coming to goals, Levante has been far superior in recent h2h clashes. They delivered four of the prior five wins at this venue and scored two or more goals in three of the previous h2h games, and in four of the former six at this stadium.
Moreover, home sides have shown dominance in these battles over the course of the last few years, with seven of the last nine wins going to them. Taking into account these stats, a clean sheet for the guests is probably out of the question.
