Match preview

Preview: Levante vs. Valencia – prediction, team news, lineups
Levante’s form in December and January was excellent, but there is no getting away from the fact that it has been a largely disappointing last month for the club, who have only won one of their last eight matches.

Paco Lopez’s side saw their hopes of reaching the Copa del Rey final end on March 4 as they suffered a 3-2 aggregate loss to Athletic Bilbao, while they will enter this match off the back of a 1-0 defeat at Real Sociedad.

Levante have only lost one of their last four in the league, though, and recorded a standout 2-0 victory away to Atletico Madrid on February 20, which was an indication of their capabilities.

A record of seven wins, 11 draws and eight defeats from 26 matches has left them in 11th position in the table, two points clear of 12th-placed Valencia and actually only a point off eighth-placed Athletic Bilbao.

The Frogs have not won Derby del Turia since March 2016, though, and suffered a 4-2 loss when they locked horns with their rivals in the reverse fixture at Mestalla earlier this season.

Valencia, meanwhile, will enter the match off the back of an impressive 2-1 win over Villarreal on March 5; Gerard Moreno’s first-half goal saw the Yellow Submarine take a lead into the final stages, but Carlos Soler and then Goncalo Guedes registered to complete a late turnaround for Los Che.

Javi Gracia’s side, as mentioned, are now bidding to make it back-to-back league victories for the first time this season, with their inconsistent form leaving them down in 12th position in the table.

The six-time Spanish champions have won just seven of their 26 league games this term and currently sit seven points off seventh-placed Villarreal and 12 behind sixth-placed Real Betis.

Los Che are now eight points clear of the relegation zone, though, and appear to have eased any slight fears that they could be pulled into a battle for survival in the final weeks of the season.
