Real Betis vs Levante Preview

Real Betis vs Levante

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Benito Villamarín

Date: 17th August 2018

Kick-off time – 21:15 GMT

The Spanish La Liga resumes on Friday after a long break even though we had the World Cup to keep us from being bored.

With the likes of Lionel Messi and Gareth Bale, the Spanish top flight is arguably the second most popular league in the world after the English Premier League.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane’s departure would surely affect the division, however, the likes of Philippe Coutinho should be ready to take the season by storm and make fans forget those departures much like when Neymar left.

Real Betis and Levante are not the most high profile teams in the Spanish top division, but they will be looking to start their season in the best possible note before they face bigger opposition.

Real Betis have signed William Cavalho, Sergio Canales, Joel Robles, among others, so Quique Setien would be hopeful that they can better the 6th place finish they achieved last season.

Paco Lopez helped Levante finish last season in 15th place after many had expected them to be relegated.

This season is set to be another struggle for survival, and their fans will be hoping that the signing of Coke, Moses Daddy Simon, among others will help them have a good season.

Real Betis have won the last three meetings between these teams, scoring 7 times and conceding none, including wins at home and away last season.

Bookmakers make Real Betis slight odds-on favourites to come out on top in their opening match of the season.
