Barcelona vs Levante
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Sunday, 2 February 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Camp Nou.
At the Camp Nou, Barcelona have been almost unbeatable for a very long time. On top of that, under new manager Quique Setien, they seem to have found their scoring touch back too. By all means, the consensus is to pick Barca to record a huge win over Levante this Sunday.
Barcelona vs Levante Match Preview
Barcelona lost on the road the last La Liga match-day against Valencia. The game was a hugely anticipated one by the fans, to see how their team would perform against a high profile opposition.
Sadly, Barca lost 2-0, and it once again opened criticism of their results away from home. However, the fact that the team controlled proceedings for the majority of the time, and held the lion’s share of possession, give hope to Cules that all is not bad at their camp.
In the meantime, Levante lost 2-0 on the road the prior game week against Osasuna. It was their third straight league loss, and the fifth winless fixtures in a row. Serious questions have been raised about the team, and their performances ever since the turn of the new year.
As of now, Barca are placed second in the table, three points behind Real Madrid, and they have a difficult Champions League fixture coming up against Napoli. The team needs to set their priorities fast, and start performing in the big games.
For that, Barca first need some high-scoring wins to build confidence, and Levante seem to be the perfect prey.
Barcelona vs Levante Head-to-head (h2h)
- 21 of the former 24 wins went to the Blaugrana.
- Barca have found the back of the net in the past 28 fixtures on the trot.
- Seven of the last eleven match-ups resulted in wins to nil for Setien’s men.
- Since 2004, Barcelona have won every single encounter at this stadium.
- Levante have been able to score a total of two goals from their prior nine visits to this venue.
Barcelona vs Levante Prediction
Barcelona are easily one of the best teams in Spain along with Real Madrid, and are the two-time defending champions of the competition. On top of that, they have the home advantage, where it seems as if they are virtually invincible.
In fact, the Blaugrana have not at all lost at home this season, and just recorded a massive 5-0 win in their Copa del Rey fixture at the Camp Nou just the last match-day.
On the other hand, Levante are on a three-match losing run in overall matches, and have lost nine of their preceding fifteen road trips. Importantly, Barca recorded 21 of the prior 24 h2h wins, and have won every h2h battle at this venue since 2004.
Coupling Barca’s determination to get back on track as well, to all these stats, we expect Lionel Messi’s Barcelona to record a massive win this Sunday, and make a statement to the whole league.
