It has been all too rare in recent times where Valencia have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. In fact, Los Che have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 7 goals during that time. Let’s see whether or not that trend will be sustained in this game.

Team News: Valencia
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just one fitness concern for the Valencia manager Javi Gracia to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed group. Mouctar Diakhaby (Ankle Injury) misses out.
It seems likely that Los Che look set to opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation in the match, utilising Jaume Doménech, Gaya, Eliaquim Mangala, Gabriel Paulista, Daniel Wass, Uros Racic, Geoffrey Kondogbia, Goncalo Guedes, Kang-in Lee, Manu Vallejo and Maximiliano Gómez.
Team News: Levante
Levante boss Paco López has a number of players out of action. Roger Martí (Sprained ankle) and Cheick Doukouré (Achilles tendon rupture) are not ready for selection.
There’s a good chance that Levante seem most likely to begin the game with a 4-4-2 formation by sending out Aitor Fernandez, Jorge Miramon, Rober Pier, Oscar Duarte, Carlos Clerc, Jorge de Frutos, José Campaña, Nemanja Radoja, Enis Bardhi, Sergio León Limones and José Luis Morales.
We believe that Levante should be able to breach the defence of this Valencia outfit, although it is unlikely to be enough to avoid a loss.
We’re expecting a very close game with a 2-1 victory for Valencia by the conclusion of the game. Looking forward to this.
