The rivalry in the Spanish La Liga kicks off from week one as Valencia will be welcomingwelcome Levante to the Mestalla Stadium in a local derby.
In the last 24 meetings between these two teams, Valencia have won 12, while Levante have won just 5, with the other 7 ending in a draw. Los Che are unbeaten in their last 6 matches against the visitors.
Valencia will likely have a tough start as key players like Dani Parejo, Francis Coquelin, Ferran Torres, and Rodrigo have all left the club due to financial crisis. Levanter, on the other hand, signed the likes of Jorge de Frutos, Dani Gomez, Mickael Malsa, and Son, with several players returning to the club after ending their loan spells with various Spanish clubs.
Valencia’s number one goal this season will be to avoid relegation and their task starts with their city rivals. Los Levantinos will want to pick up their first victory in 7 games over Los Che and this is the better time for them to win at the Mestalla.
