Villarreal vs Levante
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 4 November 2018
Kick-Off at 15:15 UK / 16:15 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica (Villarreal).
Villarreal took only a single point from last four league matches. They fell right on the brink of the red zone as a consequence and will be desperate to get the domestic campaign up and running with a result on Sunday afternoon against Levante.
Nevertheless, getting one will be quiet a significant challenge for the hosts given the Frogs have been enjoying a stellar form of late. The team led by Paco Lopez won four on the spin in Primera Division. The thread includes a shocking 1-2 victory over Real Madrid in their previous away fixture in the league. Such run, combined with Villarreal’s poor form in the league, makes us skip the home win pick at the odds set as low as 1.57.
Villarreal vs Levante: Head-to-head
The head to head stats might suggest a pleasant afternoon for the local crowd at Estadio de la Ceramica, though.
Villarreal won 17, drew 3 and lost 6 of 26 matches against the Frogs.
The Yellow Submarine were even more impressive in games played in front of their fans where Villarreal won 9, drew 2 and lost 2 of 13 meetings with the Frogs.
Villarreal won all of last five home clashes with Levante.
Villarreal vs Levante: Prediction
Javi Calleja’s men announced the end to their crisis ten days ago when they demolished Rapid Vienna 5-0 at home in Europa League. They got off to a dream start of the weekend’s league tie against Alaves when Gerard Moreno broke the deadlock ten minutes into the game at Estadio de Mendizorroza.
However, the Yellow Submarine could not hold on to the lead allowing Babazorros to bounce back and win the match later on. The hosts struggled for goals ever since the start of the season which is why we have reasons to expect a low-scoring clash here when they take on Levante.
The visitors were very tough to break down of late. They shipped just two goals in last four league matches. The Frogs will park the bus here which is why we will back the Under 3.5 goals FT as the main betting option at the odds of 1.44.
