The 2020-21 edition of the league returns to action this weekend with another round of matches as Villarreal host Levante at the Ciutat de Valencia on Sunday. Both teams have been impressive this season and have a point to prove entering this game.
Levante are currently ninth in the La Liga standings and have not been at their best in recent weeks. The Valencia-based side managed to beat Eibar 1-0 last weekend and will be looking to draw a similar result in this match.
Villarreal, on the other hand, are currently seventh in the league table and have fallen after a brilliant start to the season. The Yellow Submarines have reached the semi-finals of the Europa League and have something to prove in this match.
Levante vs Villarreal, head to head match
