Villareal are usually pretty dependable at home and I expect them to rack up another 3 points this weekend. They are unbeaten in nine league games, winning six and at home defeats have only came to Valencia, Real and Barca, other than that they have been in good form but know a win here is crucial to keep pace with the champions league spots which they are just 4 points short of.
Interestingly Villareal have kept a clean sheet in each of their last three against Levante
Levante are winless in seven league games (D4 L3) and are 1-4-5 away from home.
Losing to fellows strugglers Elche last weekend was a big blow for them as they are at the foot of the table and can’t afford to drop points to those around them
They have not won any of their last six derbies played away from their home ground, drawing three and losing three and coupled with their poor away record and offence (2nd worst in La Liga) I don’t see anything other than a comfortable home win here.
Villareal to win and cover the 1.5 goal handicap is 1.90 at bet365 and thats good value
