Barcelona vs Levante Preview

 

Barcelona vs Levante

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Camp Nou

Date: 7th January 2018

Kick-off time – 15:15 GMT

Things are going well for Barcelona at the moment despite a disappointing draw last time out.

They are on the verge of sealing a British record transfer for Philippe Coutinho and enter this game 9 points clear at the top of the La Liga table.

They also have a 14 points cushion on rivals Real Madrid.

They drew their first game of the New Year 1-1 at Celta Vigo but it was a team without Andres Iniesta, Luis Suarez or Lionel Messi that travelled for that encounter.

Ousmane Dembele made a much anticipated return in that game and adding Philippe Coutinho could see them go this season unbeaten.

It is hard to see anything but a win for Barcelona in this game as they have dropped only two points in their last 8 home games this season.

Levante have been on a steady decline this season and they enter this game 16th in the league table.

Ahead of this match, they have won only one of their last 12 games and it is getting harder by the day to see them avoiding relegation to the second tier this season.

They started this year on a good note after winning a game in Barcelona against Espanyol and that should give them a little confidence boost ahead of this match.

Levante have lost 11 of their last 12 league games against Barcelona.
