Levante vs Villarreal
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 10th March 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Estadi Ciutat de València (Valencia).
It’s crunch time for both these teams. Not many games remain till the end of the season, and as of now, Villarreal, a side which used to be one of the major players in the top tier in the previous editions of this league, is in danger of getting relegated to the Segunda division.
The team has been trying their best to get out of this regrettable position they are currently in. But tough fixtures, one after the other, have always put a dull reality check on their attempts. In Levante, they have got a formidable opposition, but not that big of a challenge compared to the other ordeals they have already been through.
But it is important to note that, Levante has been going on a good run at home recently. Their goal-scoring prowess has also seen a jump in quality.
Levante vs Villarreal Head-to-head (h2h)
- Three of the last four games had goals at either end of the pitch.
- Three of the last five matches had over 2.5 goals.
- Villarreal recorded two or more goals in three of their last five visits to this venue.
- Levante found the back of the net in the last four encounters.
Levante vs Villarreal Prediction
Quite simply, it’s do-or-die for Villarreal. It’s been some time since they have been allotted an opponent of their current stature. And it’s paramount that they give all they have into this fixture and take back a favorable result. They are suffering in the relegation zone, and with the end of the season looming, they are in desperate need of points.
For them, there’s no use of draws now. A single point from a tie is as good as a loss. And if prior experience is any indicator for us, situations like these almost always produce goal-fests.
H2h encounters between these sides also suggest the same. Three of the last four meetings had goals from both teams, and three of the last five had three or more goals. Importantly, Villarreal registered two or more goals in three of their last five games at this stadium, and Levante with the home advantage is expected to perform well in front of the goal. Moreover, the team scored two or more goals in 14 of their last 20 home-ties.
Taking into account these trends, we are in for game filled with goals this Sunday.
