Valencia CF meet Levante UD in La Liga in a local derby match that ought to be one of the closest of recent years.
Levante haven’t won at Valencia in the last decade, but the two sides are on equal points in the table having each played 17 matches.
Valencia’s financial troubles have rather evened the playing field, but on paper they have the stronger squad.
Brazilian forward Jonas has proved a livewire up front, and his eight goals are at least double the total of any other player in either team.
Still, Levante have conceded just 25 goals in their 17 matches, and given that they lost 7-0 on the opening day of the season to FC Barcelona, that means they only let in an average of only just over a goal a game, and have kept six clean sheets since.
Derby matches are always tense affairs, and given the fired up nature of the players it would not be a surprise to see a sending off.
After all, there has been at least one red card in eight of Levante’s 17 matches in La Liga, and twelve in all competitions so far.
Their match against Valencia promises to be a fascinating battle.
