A rejuvenated Barcelona team will be traveling to Valencia this Sunday, as it takes on Levante in the ongoing Spanish La Liga season.
After a horrendous start, even the staunchest of fans of the Catalan club had written of Barcelona’s prospects in the current season. However, the past few months, especially after the winter break, as seen Barcelona make a huge comeback. While many were skeptical about Xavi's ability to coach one of the most popular football clubs in the world, he has proven to be the main reason for Barcelona’s turnaround.
The club is undefeated in its last 13 games across competitions and has won each of its last 6 games in La Liga 2021-22. As a result, Barcelona is currently in the 2nd spot on the points table, 12 points behind the toppers Real Madrid. With 9 games to go in the season, Barcelona has a faint chance of making it to the top. However, with the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th teams all tied at 57 points, Barca would like to create some distance by collecting 3 points here.
Playing its 5th consecutive season within the top flight, Levante is in real danger of being relegated back into the second division. Currently at 19th place with 22 points, Levante still needs 7 points to overtake Cadiz and move to safety. The club has improved its game in the recent weeks, picking up points from 5 of its last 7 games. Coach Alessio Lisci will be particularly happy with the team’s last outing, where it stunned 7th placed Villarreal with a convincing 2-0 win.
The match against Barcelona will be its 2nd consecutive home game, and most football betting sites predict that they might trouble the visitors to a certain extent.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Levante UD vs F. C. Barcelona La Liga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Estadio Ciudad de Valencia, Valencia, on 10th April 2022.
The hosts have played well in the recent home games, and that might be a slight cause of concern for Barcelona, whose away record hasn’t been that great against Levante. Also, Levante is likely to have a fully fit squad, and Alessio Lisci will be able to play around with his substitutions as and when he likes.
On the other hand, Xavi has a long list of players who are unlikely to make the trip. These include Sergio Dest, Luuk de Jong, Samuel Umtiti and Nico Gonzalez, all of whom are unfit. Also, Moussa Wague will be serving a suspension in this game.
Nevertheless, given Barcelona’s recent form, they should have no problems in overcoming any challenge that the hosts might throw at them.
Bet on a Barcelona win.
Seeing the last 11 head-to-head encounters between the 2 clubs across competitions, we can find that all except 2 have seen an aggregate of 3 or more goals being scored. Also, the last 4 away games for Barcelona have seen over 2.5 goals being scored in them. This is probably why the odds available for this betting market are so short. However, we do think it is still a bet worth placing.
While Barcelona has scored 92 goals against Levante in the La Liga, the most compared to any other club, they have also conceded 11 away goals against them since 2017-18, the most against any opponent in that period. Once again, the odds seem a bit short but the stats back this bet as well. We, therefore, recommend betting on both teams to score.
