Levante ended February on a positive note. On the last day of the month, the Frogs beat Elche at home with a score of 3-0. On the other hand, in March the outsider of the Spanish elite has experienced negative results: away defeats at the hands Athletic and Osasuna with the same score of 1-3, 1-1 home draw with Espanyol. Poor results prevented Levante from climbing out of the bottom of the La Liga standings. Before round 30, the Frogs are 20th in the table, with an asset of 19 points and 8 points behind Cadiz in the saving 17th place. Theoretically, the Levantines still have a chance to retain their place in the Primera, but it's slim. Levante's home statistics are also the worst in the division, with only two wins against seven draws and five losses, on a goal difference of 17-22. The home side have the worst defense in the division, conceding 58 goals in 29 La Liga games 2021/22.

Villarreal finished February with a resounding 5-1 victory over Espanyol. And in March, the Yellows played one match more than Levante. Three games in La Liga were joined by a return leg in the Champions League round of 16 against Juventus in Turin, won 3-0 by the Castellonians. In three La Liga matches held in March, Villarreal scored only three points against Celta but lost away to Osasuna and Cadiz. Both losing games ended with the same score of 0-1. It was due to these point losses that Villarreal fell out of the European Cup zone, dropping to seventh place in the La Liga standings.
Villarreal's away statistics are below average, with only 14 points earned in 14 games. Three wins, five draws and six losses, 13-13 goal difference. We can see that on the road, the Yellow Submarine play low-scoring soccer and don't shy away from draws. However, we expect the team to be active in Valencia. Villarreal has a pair of matches with Bayern, and in between, there's Athletic. The situation in La Liga is tense, Villarreal is still seventh, has three points less than Real Sociedad, but it is unlikely that the Castellonians need the Conference League, at least the Europa League. And in that zone there is Betis, who is five points ahead and fully focused on La Liga. It is obvious that Villarreal need to bring three full points to keep their chances of finishing in the top five by beating Levante.
