Match Date: 01 February 2014 (local time)

Venue: Ciudad de Valencia

 

Team Form

Levante

Levante gets the opportunity to score more points and move a notch higher in the La Liga table when they meet the minnow, Rayo Vallecano.

 

Relegation is the least of Levante’s worry as of the moment, thus, they shall face their upcoming visitors with an overwhelming confidence.

 

Within the course of Levante’s last six (6) matches, the club was able to win three (3). Two (2) of them ended in defeats and the other one resulted in a draw. It may be a lackluster one compared to other clubs, but certainly, this is a strong one for Rayo Vallecano.

 

Levante currently occupies the 8th spot of the La Liga table and aspires for a better rank right after their face off with Rayo Vallecano.

 

Rayo Vallecano

A dim future awaits Paco Jemez and his boys. After finishing on the 8th spot last season, it seems that they will have to leave the top-flight league soon.

 

Rayo Vallecano is already at the rock bottom part of the table. They have only managed to accumulate sixteen (16) points this season. Their recent form is also very disappointing. To note, they have already lost five (5) of their last six (6) matches. Their defence also struggles. In seven (7) of their last eight (8) matches, they have been conceding at least two (2) goals. Indeed, such figures places them in a very compromising situation.

 

Online betting’s top pick:  Levante

With Levante playing at their own territory, it is easy for them to dominate the match. But then again, Rayo Vallecano’s struggle for survival will make this match even more interesting.
