The Match Is Over. Score: 1-1
Brace yourselves for another La Liga derby this Friday when Valencia play host to local rivals Levante, both sides battling for maximum points. Football fans are very excited at the prospect of these two sides squaring-off at the Mestalla Stadium as it is bound to be an enthralling and exciting game.
Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 28
Kick-off:
Venue: Mestalla (Valencia)
Sitting seventh on the standings, it is fair to say Valencia have been enjoying a decent campaign so far. Having amassed 42 points from 27 games, just four points shy of the final Europa League spot, Los Che will be looking to break into the highly-coveted Champions League places sooner rather than later.

Faced with the herculean task of upstaging free-scoring Atalanta in Europe, Los Che were knocked for six with an 8-4 score-line posted on the board. Having been eliminated from the Champions League by the Serie A outfit, Albert Celades’ charges can now turn their attentions to the domestic league.

Meanwhile, Levante sit 13th on the log and are a whopping eight points clear of the drop-zone. However, with survival far from guaranteed for the Frogs, they will be itching to secure a positive result here to steer further away from the relegation places. Expect a thrilling encounter in Valencia.

Valencia vs Levante Team News

Prior to the COVID-19 break, Valencia were in action against troubled side Deportivo Alaves, the latter hosting Los Che in a crunch La Liga clash. It was a thrilling game at the Estadio de Mendizorroza with Alaves putting forth a worthwhile performance to secure a point.

Valencia started the game on the front foot, pressing high up the pitch as they had the opposition pegged back in their own half. Their pressure soon paid off with Dani Parejo placing the ball into the corner of the net to send the visitors ahead.

Following the lead, they looked on-course for a huge victory as they continued to press forward in search of more goals to put the game to bed. However, the home side held their own, keeping Valencia’s attacking frontline at bay.

Against the run of play, Laguardia danced through the Valencia defense before feeding the ball to Edgar Mendez, leaving the Spaniard with the easy task of slotting the ball past Jasper Cillessen in goal to salvage an unlikely draw.

Levante, on the other hand, grinded out a massive one-all home draw against Europa League hopeful Granada on the last matchday. Both sides cancelled each other out, scoring either half of the game, to share the spoils.

For this fixture, a lot of factors are going to be put into context. Both sides have managed a similar goalscoring pattern; Levante scoring 32 goals while shipping 40 goals at the other end of the pitch and Valencia plunging home 38 efforts while conceding 39 goals.

The home side have only lost seven games so far this season and are in contention for a top-four finish. With only four points separating them from fourth-placed Real Sociedad, they will be having a real go at a Champions League spot come the end of the campaign.

The away side’s record of 14 defeats cements their place as one of the highest-losing sides in the league – only Mallorca and Espanyol sporting a worse record. Also, they have been mediocre on their travels with 11 defeats from their previous 14 away games.
