Our match prediction:
After eliminating Napoli in the Europa League last 32, Villarreal will be aiming to return to winning ways in La Liga when they host relegation-threatened Levante at their Camp el Madrigal on Sunday morning. The Yellow Submarine are on the right track to book their place in the Champions League and despite the fact that los Levantinos signed Italian star Giuseppe Rossi in the January transfer window, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. Over the years Villarreal have turned their Camp el Madrigal into a real fortress and they are widely expected to record their fourth consecutive win at home in all competitions. Levante are not regarded as good travellers and we predict that they will suffer their sixth straight loss on the road in La Liga. In their last meeting at Camp el Madrigal Luciano Vietto scored the winner for Marcelino’s troops (1-0).
