Levante, who became the first team to be relegated from La Liga this season, will host Deportivo Alaves at the Estadio Ciudad de Valencia on Sunday.

The hosts were humbled 6-0 by Real Madrid in their previous game, with Vinicius Junior bagging his first career hat-trick for the capital club. It was Levante's first loss in three games but was a decisive blow in their quest to stay up.

Alaves, 19th in the standings, secured a narrow 2-1 win over Espanyol to keep their top-flight hopes alive. This is a must-win game for them, as they face 17th-placed Cadiz in their final league fixture.

If Cadiz lose against Real Madrid on Sunday, Alaves and Cadiz will square off in a nail-biting game next week, with the winner maintaining their top-flight status.

Levante vs Alaves Prediction

Levante have nothing but pride left to play for this season and will look to sign off on a winning note. They have scored at least two goals in their last four home games and are expected to find the back of the net here. While they are already relegated, they could spoil the party for Babazorros.

While away form has been a concern for Alaves this season, they have an impressive record at Sunday's venue, suffering just one defeat since 1996. In a closely contested affair, the visitors should eke out a narrow win as they try to remain in the top flight.
