If there is something positive about COVID-19, it is for sure the short summer pause between football seasons. The Spanish first division LaLiga is back again, and we will analyse a very interesting match.
After the coronavirus forced pause, Valencia decreased a lot their performance, and they lost the chance to play an international tournament next year. These results turned into a change in the team are there are many new faces. However, the new players are not big stars, so I don’t expect a challenging Valencia this year. In my opinion, one of the key players will be Jason Remeseiro, who is a versatile player, capable to play in up to three different positions, and he can do a lot of damage from the wing.
On the other side, Levante struggled a lot during the last season. However, the COVID-19 pause worked well for them and the team found better results that helped them to stay away from the danger zone. This team wasn’t too active during the summer transfers and their middle fielder Gonzalo Melero stated that Levante is a solid team with a strong base and their reinforcements will help to improve the group goals. Finally, their preparation has been crucial; the team played a total of 5 friendlies with a balance of 4 victories and 1 draw. Coincidentally, the draw was against Valencia two weeks ago.
Talking about this direct duel, Levante and Valencia finished it with a 0-0 draw. Also, the last match they played last season ended with another draw. It was almost a victory from Levante, but Valencia reacted in the 95th minute after they got a penalty kick. These are very similar teams and Valencia’s poor level after the forced pause can give a good advantage to the visitor team, who had a tremendous pre-season. For those reasons, I will bet for Levante with a +0.5 AH. If you want to enjoy the best odds and highest limits on the market, you should also register on the best betting software.
