SPAIN... LA LIGA
LEVANTE - VILLARREAL
Levante's mini revival has well and truely ended, almost before it began and 13 points adrift of safety, they are pretty much resigned to a return to Segunda.
They have lost heavily to most of the top sides recently and local rivals Villa, definitely fall into that category this season. The visitors have won 8 from 13 on the road, including their last three, the most recent of which was at Barcelona.
They have won their last two visits here, both by a two goal margin, took the reverse fixture easily and will be confident of opening up an eleven point lead over Seville in the race for a Champions League spot, against an opponent missing five starters.
That will see those eleven points as vital, with a very tough run of fixtures ahead, including meetings with Atletico and Seville.
This should be very open, goals are likely and an away win even more so.
6.5 points Villarreal 1.80 asian line.
