Real Valladolid is hosting Levante at Jose Zorrilla in round 33 in Spanish LaLiga.
Same as many teams, Valladolid is also struggling after the restart, but thanks to their solid first part of the season, Valladolid is in solid 14th place in the standings with 35 points, 9 points above the relegation zone. With only 27 scored goals in 32 games, Valladolid is one of the weakest offensive teams in LaLiga, but their defense has been good with 37 conceded goals. In their latest LaLiga game against Sevilla on the road, Valladolid has had extremely low 25% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, and only 65% of the correct passes. Valladolid got ahead in the 25th minute, and they were defending well for most of the game, but in 83rd minute, Valladolid conceded a penalty and Sevilla tied the game. This match ended in 1-1 draw. Guardiola and Unal have each scored 6 goals for Valladolid this season. Ramirez, Porro, Guardiola, Fernandes, and Fernandez are all injured and will not be playing in this game. Valladolid has won only 1 of their last 5 games, but they are safe and will stay in LaLiga next season. The weak offense is Valladolid’s biggest problem, and that is something they will need to fix before next season.
Levante is slowly climbing the standings thanks to their solid form since the restart. In their last 5 games, Levante has 2 draw, 2 wins, and 1 loss. With 41 points, Levante is in 11th place, far from the relegation zone, but also far from the Europa League. I think this is it from Levante and I don’t see them getting any higher in the standings. Marti Roger has scored 11 goals for Levante so far, while Mayoral added 7 goals. Jose Campana has 7 assists. Ivan Lopez is still the only injured player for Levante. In their last LaLiga game against Betis at home, Levante has had 36% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, and 77% of the correct passes. Levante was outstanding in both ends and they have won this game 4-2. With 41 scored goals this season, Levante is close to the best offensive teams in LaLiga, but their defense is not doing that good, Levante has conceded 46 goals so far. In their next three games, Levante is facing teams that are playing in bad form, which means they might win a few more points, but Levante doesn’t have the quality to reach the Europa League, but overall, a very good season for Levante, and more importantly, they will be in LaLiga next season as well.
Valladolid hasn’t won any of their last 4 games, but they have had some success against Levante at home. Valladolid is 3-9-3 at home this season, while Levante is 4-1-11 on the road. I have a feeling this one could go to Valladolid, and I gotta go with my feeling. It’s nice plus money on the home team.
