Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Real Valladolid will be looking to build on the performance from the 1-1 draw with Sevilla when they face Levante on Matchday 33. La Pucela proved their worth in the Sanchez Pizjuan showdown, with the team moving one step closer to securing the La Liga survival. Real Valladolid aim to put an end to their four-game winless run, and seeing that Levante are not regarded as good travellers, we are tempted to put our money on the home side.
Los Levantinos are stuck in the middle of the standings, and despite their current form, home win should be considered. Midfielder Nikola Vukcevic returns from suspension for the visitors, while Porro and Ramirez are sidelined with injury for the hosts. In their last meeting at Estadio Jose Zorilla Valladolid defeated Levante 2-1, and the history is likely to repeat itself.
