Our football match prediction:
Despite being regarded as big underdogs in the game against Real Madrid, Villarreal did remarkably well to beat the title holders at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Matchday 19. The Yellow Submarine have been in a fine form of late and it has to be noted that they recorded three wins in previous four league fixtures. Villarreal are eyeing a place in European competitions and a win over Levante will see them move one step closer to meeting the goal. Los Levantinos, on the other hand, suffered a 1-0 loss to Celta Vigo at home in their last league match and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Villarreal’s party at Estadio de las Ceramicas. Levante failed to score in previous three games in all competitions and, taking everything into account, there is a big value in betting on the home side.
