Real Valladolid vs Levante

Newly promoted Real Valladolid returned to La Liga with an away win and will look to make it two from two when they welcome stuttering Levante.

It has been two seasons since Pucela graced the top flight and they enjoyed the best possible start at Real Zaragoza. Despite a slow start, Levante should provide a sterner test having secured a sensational sixth placed finish last season.

Keep an eye on: Javi Guerra (Real Valladolid) – Oscar Gonzalez earned all three points last week and scored an impressive 14 goals from midfield last season, but front man Guerra is the one to watch. With a total League tally of 20 strikes to help earn promotion, Guerra is the man to finish off an Oscar assist and will be looking to open his account in front of the home crowd.

Kick-off: Monday August 27, 7pm (UK time)
