Our football match prediction:
Levante and Getafe face each other at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia on day 9 of the new La Liga campaign. Los Levantinos did well to hold Espanyol to a goalless draw at the weekend, but it has to be noted that los Periquitos should have picked up all three points from the game. The newcomers have been struggling in front of goal of late and they failed to find the net in previous three league fixtures. Getafe, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 2-1 loss to Real Madrid and the performance they produced in the local derby is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of upcoming fixtures. A close encounter appears on the cards at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia and we predict that Levante and Getafe are going to play out a draw on Matchday 9. In their last meeting in Levante the two teams played out a 1-1 draw and the history is likely to repeat itself.
