Atletico Madrid vs Levante
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 15 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:15 UK
Venue: Estadio Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).
Atletico Madrid will be looking to return on the winning ways on Sunday afternoon when they host Levante at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano. The Mattressers had an interesting week holding Real Madrid to a 1-1 draw away at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu before losing 1-0 to Sporting CP in Lisbon. The defeat from Jose Alvalade was a sweet one, though, as Diego Simeone’s side went through to the semifinal of Europa League after beating the Portuguese outfit 2-0 in the first leg in the Spanish capital.
They can now temporarily focus on holding the second place in Primeira Liga standings since the first leg of the semifinal tie with Arsenal won’t be played before April 26th. Levante’s visit is a great occasion for Simeone’s squad to keep the splendid run in matches at Wanda Metropolitano going. Atleti clinched nine consecutive wins in front of the home fans without conceding a single goal in the process.
They will be massive favourites to keep such thread going against the Frogs in spite of their recent form. Levante come into this unbeaten in five league affairs. They won three and drew two along the way. Such fine form saw them practically secure the elite class football next term as Paco Lopez and his men are now eight points adrift of Deportivo La Coruna at the 18th place.
