Villarreal vs Levante Preview

 

Villarreal vs Levante

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio de la Cerámica

Date: 20th January 2018

Kick-off time – 17:30 GMT

Villarreal were surprise winners over Real Madrid last weekend.

Their 1-0 win over the defending champions has piled pressure on Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu and more importantly enhanced their reputation as one of the giant killers in the league.

They also beat high flying Valencia by the same score line but games like this where you expect them to win has frustrated them this season.

They are currently fifth in the league table, just one point behind Real Madrid and a win here would see them move two points clear of Los Blancos for at least one day.

They seem to have found defensive stability as they have kept a clean sheet in 50% of their home games this season and have conceded just 3 goals in their last 6 games.

Levante started the season in an impressive manner with a win over Villarreal but they have only won one other game since that time and they head into this game with just 1 win in 14 league games.

Interestingly none of their players have scored since 19th November and the only goal they have scored since that time was an own goal by Aymeric Laporte of Atleitco Madrid.

Levante have lost their last 3 visits to Villarreal in a row.
