Levante acquired in the offseason several new players who will strengthen the team in different positions. This season, they started from losing, however, they took lots of positive emotions from this game. First of all, Levante showed a strong game in defence. Even after lost, they really looked confident and almost stopped opponent creating dangerous moments. Secondly, their attack worked very hard, unfortunately, they failed to score even after 16 goal attempts and much better ball control. Levante mostly played in the opponents half and had 9 corners. During this game, Levante made 448 passes with 82% accuracy. They were favourites of the game by the statistics, however, playing away match is always very hard because of the support of the fans. If they continue to play such football, then this season will be definitely more successful.
Villarreal this summer made lots of changes in their squad as several team leaders left the club. Most important is that Santi Cazorla came back to the beloved squad and already playing as he played before. In the opening game of La Liga against Granada, he scored the 100th goal of his career and made an assist. All this attention to one person, only because he had been injured for 2 years and was already ready to end his career. Santi has more than 10 operations and eventually returned to the field to play for Villarreal.
The first game was not so successful as they planed, especially playing at Estadio de la Ceramica, in Villareal. The Yellow Submarine has drawn the game against Granada in a smashing game with 4:4 result. The home team took advantage every time when they scored, however, Granada scored back and finally, they finished the match with a very productive draw. You can not draw conclusions from one game, but the team needs to tighten the defence that’s for sure. Opponents very quickly passed from defence to attack. The team has the potential to succeed this season and take a higher position.
