The first match on Saturday’s schedule and this looks a gimme three points for Levante who enjoy home advantage against one of the worst sides in the division. Here are our top Levante v Rayo Vallecano betting tips.
An In-Depth Look at the Match
The locals are no world beaters themselves, of course, and will know the threat of relegation continues to hang over them, but it’s that worry that should see them rally to record an important three points in this match. Levante start the round in 16, just two points better than Real Valladolid and the bottom-three.
They haven’t been what we would call impressive in recent weeks, despite the mounting pressure, but they have been picking up points and moving in the right direction. A win, two draws and a couple of defeats has Levante three points behind Villarreal in 14th and the early nature of this kick-off means they can get the jump on some of their rivals. Four points taken from their last three starts is encouraging for followers and you can back the home win at 9/10 with 888sport.
Sinking Without a Trace
Rayo Vallecano are in danger of sinking without a trace this season and if they don’t claim three points in this match against a fellow relegation-threatened side, we think that’ll be it for them and they can start planning for next season in the league below. The visitors can be found down in 19th place – second bottom of the table – with season stats of eight wins, seven draws and 20 defeats. The 31 points on the board has them six off Girona and safety, with time running out as they attempt to save their skin at this level.
Vallencano have won two of their last five and did bank a maximum last time, so we shouldn’t be in a rush to write them off just yet. They recorded a rare three points when beating Real Madrid at the end of April, a shock result that ruined accumulators across Europe. No one gave the victors a chance against Zidane’s crew, but they proved, once again, nothing can be taken for granted in this league. Will they do it again? We don’t think so, but you can get your hands on 14/5 at Bet365 if you disagree and that’s a healthy offer. That may appeal to the value hunters amongst us and if you do fancy an interest bet, we suggest playing it as a super single.
