Valencia vs Levante

Spain La Liga 2 – Round 23

11/02/2018

 

Mestalla hosts the return fixture of the Derbi de Valencia. Valencia has lost their last three matches after defeating to Atletico last time out and need to bounce back. Levante scored a late equaliser against Real Madrid in their last game, a deserved point and a much-needed confidence boost during a 10 match winless run. Given the number of chances both sides surrender, the fair price on over 2.5 goals is worth taking.
