Levante vs Valencia Prediction
Levante completely lost the plot in the second half the last match-day on the road, as they conceded four unanswered goals to lose the game. The victors were Getafe, who made good use of their home advantage.
Valencia, on the other hand, had to fight well at home against Villarreal, to post the 2-1 win. The former had saved a penalty early in the first half and withstood intense pressure from the guests, and still managed to secure the victory.
This Sunday, take into account the current form of both. Levante had lost two of their last three games, and four of their previous seven. They also remained winless in nine of their preceding thirteen fixtures, and in three of their former five at home. Moreover, the team also had failed to score in two of their previous five appearances at home.
However, their counterparts remained unbeaten in 13 of their previous 16 overall fixtures and had scored twice or more in five of their last six. On the road, they had stayed away from a loss in five of their last seven trips as well.
Most importantly, Valencia scored twice or more in the last three h2h meetings, and have been unbeaten in the prior three years. They had also registered 14 of the former 19 overall wins against this opponent.
Considering all these factors, anticipate Valencia to do their best, and keep their unbeaten streak alive this match-day.
Be that as it may, Levante do have the home advantage, and they have lost just once this campaign at home. They have also scored a total of five goals from the last two appearances here, whereas Valencia failed to keep a clean sheet in ten of their former twelve games on the road.
Furthermore, the previous four h2h clashes in a row had goals from both teams, and all these factors combine together to pick out BTTS as a promising betting option.
