Barcelona look for the three points during their visit to Levante
Looking to stay at top in the Spanish La Liga, the leaders and current champions Barcelona look for the three points during their visit to Levante on Saturday. We will talk about this game today in our La Liga predictions.
Five wins in their last five games – this is Barcelona’s current form in La Liga. This is also the reason why the Catalans are leading the standings with one point ahead of Real Madrid. So far Los Cules have a record of 7 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats in the league.
On Tuesday Ernesto Valverde’s boys hosted Real Valladolid at the Camp Nou and entertained their fans with a thrilling 5-1 win. The club’s superstar Lionel Messi scored twice in his former teammate Jordi Masip’s net, while Clement Lenglet, Arturo Vidal and Luis Suarez also scored for the champions.
Against Real Valladolid Ernesto Valverde put the young star Ansu Fati among the starters, but most likely on Saturday he will pick Antoine Griezmann again. Meanwhile Ousmane Dembele returns on the pitch after being suspended for two games.
Levante are comfortably positioned at the middle of the standings, being 10th with 14 points won until now. After suffering two consecutive defeats in the league, in the previous round Levante achieved a great 2-1 win against Real Sociedad in San Sebastian. At halftime Levante already had two goals advantage, because of Enis Bardhi and Borja Mayoral’s strikes. Taking into account that right now Real Sociedad are one of the teams in the best form in Spain, this win is telling us that Levante are in a good shape at the moment.
This is what we had to say in our La Liga predictions for the game between Levante and Barcelona on Saturday. It’s obvious that Los Cules will be everyone’s favourite here, but make no mistake – Levante are a tough host.
