Barcelona: A hectic few weeks for the Blaugrana as they coming off a 2-1 loss last week in La Liga against Cadiz and a midweek loss against Juventus in Champions League when they were defeated 0-3. It’s been a struggle as of late for the Catalonian side in La Liga, pairing wildly inconsistent performances, with questionable management decisions, and a lack of cohesion on the pitch. Messi, Antoine Griezmann and Philippe Coutinho will need to do more the in the attack to get the job done.
Levante: Levante’s season has gotten off to a rough start, losing four of the first five matches. Despite sitting near the bottom of the table in staring down regulation status, the team is coming off a 3-0 win last week against Getafe. The roster has forwards capable of scoring in Roger Marti and Daniel Gomez Alcon, but will need more from Rubén Rochina to aid in the attack against a narrow Barcelona as of late.
Barcelona vs. Levante prediction
Barcelona will be eager to show a ruthlessness that they’ve been lacking in La Liga against a bottom table team. Pick: Barcelona 3, Levante 1.
