Valladolid, depleted, challenges Levante

He I raised plays this Friday (9:00 p.m.) against the Real Valladolid at Ciutat de València, where they have won their last four games, with the aim of imposing their good dynamics in the League against a rival who arrives very weakened by their numerous losses.

After winning at Eibar and tie in Cadiz, Levante had marked between eyebrows this cycle of three games that ends before the Valladolid team to visit, with a certain margin of error, next week to Real Madrid in Valdebebas.

The Levante coach, Paco Lopez, has the casualties due to injury of José Campaña and Nikola Vukcevic and has just recovered Rober Pier, after having overcome the coronavirus.

Despite the effort last Tuesday in Cádiz, the Valencian coach would have many of the players who were starters, although Coke could give Miramón a rest on the right side and Vezo will return to eleven for Postigo, who ended up with shoulder discomfort in the last match.

Jorge De Frutos' good form makes him the favorite to occupy one of the midfield positions, probably alongside Radoja or Malsa, while Melero could enter the team and even replace Morales.

The front Roger Marti, author of the two goals for Levante at Ramón de Carranza, seems indisputable from the beginning and Dani Gómez will be able to move Sergio León to the bench and form an attacking pair with the Valencian.

The real Valladolid He continues to accumulate casualties, and this week he has added Fede San Emeterio, one of the important players of the Blanquivioleta team together with Roque Mesa, to the infirmary, who will not be able to be against Levante either, having to serve two penalties.

At least, Sergio Gonzalez has been able to recover Bruno to accompany Joaquín in the center of the rear, before the losses of Javi Sánchez and El Yamiq, who will have the covid-19 tests repeated this Thursday, but which, a priori, will not be the game, having been in isolation for several weeks.

The Catalan coach has highlighted the fact of being able to recover Bruno in the center of the defense, while for the center of the field, despite having the absences of San Emeterio and Roque Mesa, he will be able to count on Michel, Kike Pérez, Rubén Alcaraz or Oriol Rey, to cover that position.

“Bad luck” is taking hold with Real Valladolid, which has not been able to find continuity in its defensive block due to injuries or illnesses and, despite this, “the team is out of relegation positions, and motivated to do a good second round, because not as many things can happen as in the first ”, he pointed out.

Since Guardiola continues low, everything indicates that Weissman act as the only forward to face a Levante that, as Sergio has highlighted “has acquired strength in his fiefdom and has many virtues, among them, that the coach and the players go to one”.

In addition, the Blanquivioleta coach has warned that the Valencian team is “in a more comfortable dynamic” and expect “a more daring Levante” than the one seen at José Zorrilla, because “his last home games have served him to give a jump to the point level and play with more comfort ”.
