Villarreal vs Levante – Team news and predicted lineups
With the guests still looking for their first win of the season, it's clear that the home team is the favourite. Here's a closer look at both teams:
The first half of the season was not as great as Villarreal fans hoped for, especially in La Liga where the team is currently in the middle of the standings with 25 points from 18 games. However, that is only five points behind fourth place in the standings and Villarreal has been in good form lately with three straight wins. Also, the Yellow Submarine did well in Champions League and got out of a tough group to reach the Top 16 phase, where they will play against Juventus.
Meanwhile, Villarreal is lucky to have avoided coronavirus cases during a major outbreak in La Liga. They also don't have many injury issues since only Pena, Danjuma, and Coquelan are under question for the upcoming match.
Villarreal predicted lineup:
Rulli – Foyth, Albiol, Torres, Pedraza – Pino, Parejo, Capoue, Trigueros – Dia, G Moreno
This La Liga season has been a true nightmare so far for Levante since the team from Valencia is still without a win after 18 rounds have passed in the league. The team has eight draws and ten losses, which obviously puts them in the last place in the standings, seven points behind the first team outside of the relegation zone.
On the bright side, Levante is without major problems in the squad when it comes to injuries and they have to reported coronavirus cases at this time, which is surprising. Shkodran Mustafi is the only player that will miss the upcoming match with injury, although Postigo is also questionable.
Levante predicted lineup:
Cardenas – Son, Vezo, Duarte, Clerc – Campana, Radoja – De Frutos, Bardhi, Morales – Marti
