Real Valladolid vs Levante
Spanish La Liga
Date: Thursday, 27 September 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla (Valladolid).
Pucela managed to save a point on a tough away fixture at Balaidos thanks to a 94th-minute goal from substitute Leandro Suarez. Valladolid were down by two goals on two occasions against Celta at the weekend, but they never gave up and showed a fantastic fighting spirit to claw their way back into the contest twice and eventually earn a massive point.
Can the 3-3 draw against the in-form Celta Vigo raise the team’s spirits and help Sergio Gonzalez’s men pick up their maiden victory in the elite class here against the struggling Levante?
Speaking of the visitors, they will come into this in a completely opposite mood. They conceded as many as six goals in a demolishing home defeat to Sevilla on Sunday. They dropped down to 16th in the Primera Division standings after losing three and drawing one of last four games in the competition.
Real Valladolid vs Levante: Head-to-head
The two sides last battled it out in the second tier of Spanish football back in the 2016/17 campaign.
The Frogs came on top in both home and away fixtures netting an impressive seven-goal tally along back then.
Both teams were on the scoreline in four of last five head to head affairs.
Real Valladolid vs Levante: Prediction
Sergio Gonzalez seems to have managed to bed in the new arrivals as Valladolid finally looked well organized in the final third. The team failed to find the back of the net in four games before drawing 3-3 to Celta on Saturday.
This summer’s acquisition Enes Unal bagged his inaugural goal in Pucela’s shirt and he will no doubts be the biggest threat to the struggling defensive line of Levante’s here.
Valladolid were very tough to beat on the home patch in the previous term of Segunda Division. They showed quality by holding Barcelona to a narrow 0-1 defeat when the champions visited Municipal Jose Zorrilla in the second round.
With an fine draw against Celta in their pocket, we believe the time has come for the maiden victory of the season against the opponent who suffered a knock-down at the weekend.
