Levante travel to Valladolid in the Friday night fixture in La Liga. The hosts sir in the relegation places, 3 points from safety, but their inferior goal difference means even a win tonight would be unlikely to see them briefly outside of the bottom three. Their home form has been pretty solid, so they will be hopeful of a positive result. Levante have lost four of their last six away games, but managed to hold Sociedad to a 0-0 draw the last time they were on the road 2 weeks ago.
Levante have had 4 defeaats from their last 6 on the road, but three of these were against the stronger sides in the league: Valencia, Atletico and Bilbao. Since their 7-0 thumping at Barcelona on the opening day, they have been solid - worthy of their top half position. Away from home, they have performed very well against bottom half opposition, getting some strong results. Their record stands at W3 D2 L1 against sides below them in the league - add their win at Sevilla and draw at Sociedad and you can see why they will feel they can get a result here this evening. I agree.
Oscar is unlikely to start for the home side, and this will be a pretty big blow as he is an important part of their side from an attacking/creative perspective. Levante have no real injury worries so will likely go for their strongest available line up.
Valladolid have two wins from their last 16 competitive fixtures, so this price is great value.
