See predictions for Levante vs. Barcelona match
Four wins, two draws and five defeats – that is how Levante have performed in La Liga this season. A total of 14 points has left them in 10th position in the table, which represents a strong start for the Valencia-based club.
Levante are currently competing in their third straight season at this level having earned promotion from the Segunda Division at the end of the 2016-17 campaign. The Frogs have finished 15th in La Liga in each of the last two seasons, while they have not been higher than 14th since claiming 10th in 2013-14.
Levante do have previous when it comes to finishing high up the table, though, as they ended the 2011-12 season in sixth position. It is a huge ask to expect them to challenge for a top-six spot this term, but they arguably have a squad capable of pushing for a top-10 finish.
Paco Lopez’s side will enter this match off the back of a 2-1 win at Real Sociedad on Wednesday night, which came after back-to-back defeats to Sevilla and Espanyol. They actually won two of their first three league matches of the season before suffering a 3-2 loss away to Real Madrid on September 14.
There is no question that the hosts are the underdogs for this match, but Levante ran out 5-4 winners against Barca on home soil in May 2018. That said, the Catalan giants gained revenge last season as they put five unanswered goals past the Frogs in the corresponding match.©
