Levante vs Barcelona
Competition – Copa del Rey
Stadium – Ciudad de Valencia
Date: 10th January 2019
Kick-off time – 20:30 GMT
Barcelona will look to do what they couldn’t do when they faced Levante in the first leg of this game last week.
The Frogs secured a shock 2-1 win thanks to two goals scored inside the first 18 minutes as Philippe Coutinho’s late penalty became just a consolation goal for the Catalans.
However, Levante’s recent record when they visit the Camp Nou offers almost no encouragement that they could get anything here or make it to the next round.
Fans should expect Enersto Valverde to field a strong side in this game with the likes of Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi coming in to get the job done. This will probably be the only way for them to turn the game around and keep themselves in the hunt for 4 trophies this season.
The last 5 visits of Levante to Barcelona have seen them lose by at least a 3 goals margin.
Levante may have won their last two games against Barca at home, but fans and punters alike expect them to be well beaten by the Catalans in this game.
Bookmakers have priced Barcelona up as if defeat is out of the question. They are currently trading strongly odds-on while goal markets suggest a high-scoring cup tie.
Lionel Messi is clear favourite with bookies to score the opening goal of the game.
This game gets underway at 20:30 BST.
