Barcelona Prediction

Barcelona find themselves 2-1down to this evening’s opponents, Levante as they prepare for this second leg cup-tie in the Copa del Rey after being handed a surprise defeat in the first leg. The hosts currently enjoy a five point lead at the top of La Liga ahead of second placed Atletico Madrid, but there’s work to be done in Thursday night’s cup clash.

Overall, Barcelona have won 8 of their last 10 matches in all competitions, while at home, the hosts have lost just twice in their last 46 matches at the Camp Nou in all competitions which is a staggering record and shows their dominance against the rest of the field.

With the likes of Suarez (14 goals), Messi (17 goals) and Dembele (7 goals) set to be unleashed against Levante here, the hosts look almost certain to score the required amount of goals by themselves in this second leg

 

Key-Facts – Barcelona v Levante

  • Barcelona have won their last 12 home matches against Levante
  • Barcelona have won 8 of their last 10 matches in all competitions
  • Levante have never beaten Barcelona at the Camp Nou

 

Levante Prediction

Levante sit just below mid-table in La Liga at the moment and some 20 points adrift of table toppers Barcelona, so when they recorded a 2-1 win at home against the famous Spanish giants, this caused somewhat of a ripple on the Spanish domestic scene.

The visitors are now just 90 minutes away from a historic victory as they look to protect their 2-1 lead, but they’ll have to do it the hard way as they make their way to the Camp Nou for this Copa del Rey second leg in Barcelona’s back-yard.

Last week’s win was an even bigger upset as Levante have managed just one win from their last six matches overall which included a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Barcelona in La Liga not so long ago, back in mid-December.

Levante are without an away win from their last six matches on their travels and have lost their last 12 encounters on the trot at the Camp Nou, so the odds are firmly stacked against the visitors to progress to the quarter-finals despite holding a 2-1 lead in this cup-tie.

Betting Tips Verdict

Barcelona have absolutely dominated Levante in their previous meetings, and this looks set to be the case again here.
