Barcelona vs Levante Prediction & Betting tips
During the week Levante won his first leg in the round of 16 of the Copa de Rey in Barcelona! Opponent, however, was Espanyol. The team was able to pitch their tents in this city, because on Sunday Levante must visit the big FC Barcelona. A victory at Camp Nou is almost impossible. If you look at the results from the last direct duels, then this will even be a real rubdown for the newcomer.
FC Barcelona were also on the road during the Copa del Rey week but did not manage to beat Celta Vigo 1-1. In the absence of stars like Lionel Messi or Luis Suarez, the Catalans have not come off too badly for the return leg next week. The 1: 1 was for Barcelona at the same time the 26th competitive match in a row without defeat. As before, only the two defeats in the national Supercup against Real Madrid as a flaw in the season so far. It was also the Royal, against whom Barcelona played the last match in La Liga. In their last match in calendar year 2017, the Catalans won the Clasico away in the Santiago Bernabeu clearly 3-0.
With fourteen wins and three draws, FC Barcelona are leading the league table in La Liga confidently. The advantage over Atletico Madrid in second place is already a whopping nine points. In almost all statistics, Barca is a leader and you have to look very closely to find a team with better statistics in a specific category. For example, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla have conceded fewer goals at home than the Blaugrana. Nevertheless, only four goals conceded Barcelona in eight home games, of course, a sensational value. With a total of 45 specially scored goals, Barcelona has nine more than the next best in this statistic, Valencia CF. Fifteen goals and a third of them go to Lionel Messi, who, unsurprisingly, tops the scoresheet in La Liga.
UD Levante has risen directly after relegating from La Liga two years ago last year but is struggling as expected. From seventeen games in La Liga, Levante has won only three, but also lost only five. With a total of nine points, Levante has most of all twenty clubs. The new season did not start so well for Levante. Levante remained undefeated on the opening five fixtures, earning nine out of a possible fifteen points thanks to two wins and three draws. The biggest coup was certainly the 1-1 at Real Madrid. But then the shape curve down and from the last twelve league games there was only one win and a total of nine points. Currently Levante is in 16th place, but only one point ahead of Deportivo La Coruna on the first relegation place eighteen.
Curiosity is the away balance of the climber: Of seven away goals Levante has won only one, but just lost one. There were five more draws. Levante has been unbeaten in seven competitive matches since defeating Espanyol Barcelona midweek in the Copa del Rey and outclassing Girona in the previous round. At FC Barcelona there was nothing for Levante to get in this millennium. All eleven appearances at Camp Nou have lost Levante. Five of the last away games were particularly bitter, because Barca won with 5: 0, 7: 0, 5: 1, 5: 0 and 4: 1. Not much better is the home record of Levante against the upcoming opponent. Altogether, Levante won the first of 2004 in this millennium of 22 direct duels. Otherwise there were four draws and seventeen defeats.
