Levante vs Villarreal Preview
Levante are currently rooted to the bottom of the La Liga standings and have endured a dismal season so far. The home side suffered a 3-1 defeat against Osasuna last week and will need to bounce back in this fixture.
Villarreal, on the other hand, are in seventh place in the league table at the moment and have been plagued by inconsistency this season. The Yellow Submarines slumped to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Cadiz in their previous game and cannot afford another debacle this weekend.

Levante vs Villarreal Prediction
Villarreal have excellent players in their ranks but have repeatedly failed to justify their potential this season. Unai Emery has a massive task on his hands and will need to tweak several aspects of his team's game to secure European qualification.
Levante have endured one of their worst La Liga campaigns this season and will need a miracle to emerge from the pit they have dug for themselves. Villarreal have a better team on paper and should be able to win this game.
