Levante vs Valencia Predictions

If ever Levante could do with a win in this fixture it is right now. With just 10 games to go they are bottom of La Liga and 5 points off safety having won just 5 matches all season. They did pick up a good result last weekend when they drew 1-1 away to Real Sociedad but they need to really take advantage of their home games if they are going to get out of trouble. They have won 3 of their last 5 at home with their only defeats in that period coming against Real Madrid and Barcelona so there is some fight in this Levante side and just enough quality to suggest they aren’t dead and buried just yet.

Valencia come here following a 1-0 defeat to Athletic Bilbao in the Europa League and a 3-1 home defeat to Atletico Madrid last weekend. Having appeared to have turned the corner, Gary Neville is again faced with two huge games that could go a long way to determining his long-term future at the Mestalla. They need to get the better of Athletic next week at home to have any realistic hope of qualifying for Europe next season while defeat in the Valencia derby with Levante propping up the division, would be another low point for Neville’s troubled Spanish adventure.

If history is anything to go by which it often can be in derby fixtures, then the omens aren’t good for Valencia. They have lost on their last 3 trips across town to play their city rivals. There will also be a few tired legs after a highly competitive game in awful conditions in Bilbao on Thursday night. With this game kicking off at noon on Sunday they’ve had very little time to prepare properly for it and backing Levante to win 2-1 at 9/1 looks a good shout here.
