Our match prediction:
The two local rivals Levante and Valencia take on each other in Sunday’s football match at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia. Los Levantinos head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Real Sociedad, but it has to be noted that the Basque team missed several clear-cut opportunities to score in the Estadio Municipal de Anoeta clash. Rubi’s men are desperate to secure yet another top flight survival and given that they are five points behind the “safe zone” in the La Liga standings, there is every chance the hosts will leave their hearts on the field in the local derby. Los Che have been having their ups and downs under Garry Neville, but taking into account that they outplayed the likes of Granada and Malaga in previous two away games, we predict that that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from the clash.
