Levante vs Barcelona Prediction & Betting tips
FC Barcelona is only two games away from a complete season without defeat. On Sunday-evening, however, the brand new national champion will travel to Valencia to compete against Levante there. The Catalans can wet their chests, because the home club is in top form.
Promovendus Levante seemed initially on the way to a return to the Segunda Division, but since the red-blue former head coach Juan Muniz have exchanged for Paco Lopez they are back on their feet. Lopez managed to rekindle the sacred fire and led the club thanks to no less than four victories in a row to calmer waters. A great achievement, which this week was quite rightly rewarded with a permanent employment.
Levante does not have to worry about relegation anymore, but that does not mean that the team from Valencia takes things a bit slower. Los Granotas are keen to deprive FC Barcelona of its undefeated status in La Liga. There was a lot of training this week, especially in the conversion the home team think the brand new national champion pain can do. ‘With a victory at FC Barcelona, we would write history,’ says Paco Lopez. Particularly via the left flank via captain and figurehead Jose Luis Morales, the home team could indeed stunt. The attacker always managed to get the scoreboard moving in the last three matches and is in top form.
After winning the league title and the national cup and the surprising elimination in the Champions League, the season of FC Barcelona is in fact on, although there is still a lot of prestige at stake for the Catalans. The football giant is after all only two matches away from a complete season in La Liga without defeat. That would, of course, be a great achievement from trainer Ernesto Valverde, in his very first year at the Camp Nou.
The signs are in any case favorable, because last Wednesday, FC Barcelona swept Villarreal, which was not sick, by no less than 5-1 of the mat. Chances are that Valverde will rotate and his base team will throw a lot of money. Jasper Cillessen was allowed to take place on Wednesday evening as a reward between the posts, but will probably make way for Marc-Andre ter Stegen again on Sunday-evening and Luis Suarez will also return to the basic eleven. It is expected that Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele start on the flanks and it is up to Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic to keep the balance in the midfield. Samuel Umtiti is not entirely fit, so it seems that Thomas Vermaelen will keep his place in the heart of the defense.
