Levante News and Form

Levante picked up a point in a 2-2 draw against Girona in La Liga in weekend action. That was the fourth game in a row from them without a win. Wins have been hard to come by for them having only managed two in their last ten in all competitions. In the last round of the Copa del Rey, they beat Luga from the Spanish second tier 3-1 on aggregate. Last season Levante lost at his stage 3-2 on aggregate against Espanyol. At home this season in all competitions Levante have posted a mixed W4 D2 L4 record.

They have done alright in front of goal actually though because they have produced at least two goals in all but three of their ten home fixtures this term. Only one of Levante’s home games this term have gone under 2.5 goals. Levante have come up with a clean sheet in just two of their last ten games. They have failed to score in three of their last four home games against Barcelona and this is a huge task ahead for them. Levante are W1 D0 L3 in four previous Copa del Rey games against Barcelona

Barcelona News and Form

Barcelona collected a 2-1 away win at Getafe on Sunday in La Liga to make it three straight wins in a row in La Liga. they have produced a run of nine games undefeated across all competitions (W7 D2). Only in one away game this season have Barcelona suffered a loss in an away game. That lone defeat happened in a league game at Leganes back in September 2018. They are undefeated in ten road games now, winning seven of those.

Barcelona have scored at least two goals in each of their last four away games so of course, as always, have the scoring output to damage teams. They have taken two clean sheets in their last three away games. However, Barca haven’t been great at the back though as those have been the only clean sheets in their last seven away from the Nou Camp. Barcelona are the reigning Copa del Rey holders and the last time they faced Levante in the tournament was in 2014 with Barca winning 9-2 on aggregate.
