La Liga 2020/2021 Round Up: Matchday 1

Valencia started off their first game of the season in a local derby against Levante UD at the Mestalla.

Levante took the lead quite early with a complete collapse at the back. Valencia would continue giving the ball away and could’ve fell even further behind. The one chance that Valencia got from a corner was well-taken.

Valencia would equalise for the second time out of nothing. It was a 6v2 at the back with Levante outnumbering the Valencia players yet patience from Kang In and smart movement from Maxi would unravel their defence.

Valencia seemed comfortable in the second half. Musah almost grabbed a goal in the opening few minutes of the half. Javi Gracia made a triple substitution all of whom would change the game. Racic brought much need calm and collection in the midfield whereas Cheryshev and Vallejo would be instrumental to getting both the third and fourth goals for Valencia.
