take on the visiting Levante
at Estadio José Zorrilla in the La Liga clash on Wednesday. Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Real Valladolid v Levante match are shown here (plus the best game odds).
Real Valladolid prepare for this match following a 1-1 La Liga draw versus Seville. In that game, Real Valladolid had 25% possession and 11 attempts at goal with 5 on target. The scorer for Real Valladolid was Kiko Olivas (25'). For their opponents, Sevilla FC had 15 attempts on goal with 3 on target. Lucas Ocampos (83') was the scorer for Seville.
It has not been often in recent games that Real Valladolid haven’t conceded. In fact, Pucela have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 8 goals in the process. Such a trend might not be continued into this game, of course.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Real Valladolid:
- have not registered a win against Levante UD in their last 2 league games.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 2 league matches at home.
- are without a win at home for the past 3 matches in the league.
Levante will go into the encounter after a 4-2 La Liga win as they beat Real Betis in their previous outing.
In that match, Levante managed 36% possession and 9 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. For Levante, goals were scored by Borja Mayoral (21'), Enis Bardhi (35'), José Luis Morales (50') and Rochina (59'). At the other end, Real Betis had 16 attempts on goal with 8 on target. Sergio Canales (70') and Juanmi (87') scored for Real Betis.
Levante have been effective going forward in the lead-up to this encounter, scoring 5 times in their previous 6 matches. While their manager Paco López will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Levante have had their own issues at the back, also conceding in 6 of those same outings. That pattern might not be carried forward here, of course.
Heading into this contest, Levante are undefeated in their last 2 league matches away from home.

Team News: Real Valladolid
Sandro Ramírez (Leg Injury) and Pedro Porro (Ill) won’t be playing for Valladolid gaffer Sergio González.
Team News: Levante
Due to a completely injury-free group to pick from, Levante boss Paco López does not have any fitness worries at all before this match. Nikola Vukcevic will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
In our opinion, Levante will need to put in a solid display to score against this Real Valladolid outfit who we think might well be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance. That’s why we have predicted a very even contest with a 1-0 winning margin for Real Valladolid at the end of the 90 minutes.
