Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Estadi Ciutat de Valencia will host Friday’s La Liga game between Levante and Real Sociedad. Los Levantinos did well to hold Valencia to a 1-1 draw in the local derby, but they are still sitting in the ultimate position in the standings. North Macedonia international Enis Bardhi is widely expected to return to the starting XI as Levante need to go all guns blazing at La Real. The likes of Roger Marti, Shkodran Mustafi, Jorge de Frutos, and Carlos Clerc have been struggling with injuries of late.
The Basques, on the other hand, aim to keep their Champions League hopes alive. Since both sides will go for a win in Friday’s clash, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. The likes of Mikel Oyarzabal, Nacho Monreal, Carlos Fernandez, and Ander Barrenetxea are likely to miss the game with injuries for the away side.
Highlighted Player (Roberto Soldado):
Roberto Soldado is regarded as one of the most famous footballers in the history of Villarreal. The meaning of his surname in Spanish is “the warrior” and it has to be noted that he began his football career at Real Madrid, playing from the B team between 2002 and 2006. The pacey attacker made 16 appearances and scored two goals for the first team, but he was producing the best performances of his career during his three-year spell at Valencia.
Soldado scored 59 goals in 101 appearances for los Che, but in 2013 he signed a deal with Tottenham Hotspur for a fee of £26 million. The Spanish attacker, who was born on 27 May, 1985 in Valencia, scored for the Spurs on his debut in a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace, but he netted the goal from the penalty spot.
Soldado failed to impress in the 2014/2015 Premier League campaign with Tottenham and, as a result, he was sold to Villarreal on 14 August, 2015. Speaking of his international career, the Villarreal attacker made his Spain debut in June, 2007 against Latvia.
