Levante meets Villarreal in a match for the 1st round of the La Liga. The home team won Segunda last season to earn promotion back to La Liga. They were 14 points clear of second place, with a resolute defence the key to their success. Despite coming into this match after a win, they haven’t had great performances in this beginning of the season. Some of their most important signings are Doukoure, who played in France, and Boateng, who played in Portugal. On the other side, Villarreal finished fifth in La Liga last season, however, they out-performed their expected goal difference by nearly 19 goals, which is also a reason of their high rank. They have signed well over the summer though and can get their season off to the best possible start. Villarreal is in La Liga for 4 consecutive years, with a great campaign last season, and Levante is getting back to it. Despite not being among the best teams in Spain, Villarreal was already runner-up in top-flight. Also, Villarreal has a better-structured team, which shows in their performances.
