Betting tips for Levante vs Valencia 02.09.2018
The first of the derbies that are played on this day takes place in Orriols, where the local team receives its neighbor, Marcelino García Toral's Valencia.
The Levante starred an incredible metamorphosis in the last third of last season. The team had risen from the hand of Juan Ramón López Múñiz, playing a great campaign in the Second Division. After a promising start, the team began to lose matches, completing almost an entire round without winning, which meant the dismissal of the coach. His substitute, Paco López, had little experience but since he arrived, the team was very clear what to play, going up from the relegation positions until the end of the season closer to the positions that give access to the European competition than the bottom of the table.
Lopez has been renewed with total justice (Levante was able to put five goals to FC Barcelona in the penultimate matchday), and now will have the opportunity to design a project from the beginning, for which it will have just under 49 million budget.
The goalkeeper Raul Fernandez, the Colombian Lerma and the Ivi end are the only confirmed casualties of the Orriols team (they do not enter anything for either of the two), which has been reinforced with the signings of the Uruguayan central Erick Cabaco, the definitive purchase of Coke Schalke 04, goalkeeper Aitor Fernández, from Numancia, and striker Borja Mayoral, on loan from Real Madrid.
After winning in Seville against Real Betis, the team fell at home last weekend against Celta (1-2).
El Valencia starts up in the second project of Marcelino García Toral, who has just renewed his contract for another year. The Chés will return to play the Champions League and for this they will have almost 350 million euros in budget.
Pending if they can buy the Portuguese Guedes after its cession from PSG, the Valencian team has invested almost 49 million euros in the definitive purchase of another loan, the Frenchman Geoffrey Kondogbia, from Inter Milan. Serbian center Uros Racic comes from the Red Star, while French center-back Diakhaby signs from Olympique Lyon. Also comes the former Celta, Danish Daniel Wass, in exchange for 6 million euros, and in the closing of the market, the team was made with the final pass Gonçalo Guedes.
In the departures chapter, the club enters 40 million for the sale of Joao Cancelo to Juventus; 5 million more for the transfer of Serbian Maksimovic to Getafe; 2 million for the definitive sale of Orellana to Eibar; and 1.2 million euros for the transfer of the irregular Zakaria Bakkali to Anderlecht. The last to leave were Martin Montoya, sent to Brighton & Hove Albion, and Italian striker Simone Zaza, on loan to Torino.
The Ché set debuted at the Mestalla with a 1-1 draw against Atlético de Madrid, falling at the RCDE Stadium last weekend.
Last year, Valencia tied in the rival's field and given the moment of both, it is the most probable result in this Valencian derby.
