Sevilla vs Levante predictions, H2H and match preview for this Sunday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as Julen Lopetegui’s side return to the RSP for another late Sunday encounter.
Sevilla vs Levante Preview
This is a game that will bring up bad memories for a few Levante players. They conceded 11 times in their 2 league meetings with Sevilla last term and will be hungry to be much more competitive this time around. They face a Sevilla side that were hammered 4-0 at Barcelona in their most recent match and has made a mixed start to life under Julen Lopetegui.
That capitulation from Sevilla at Camp Nou was somewhat typical of their recent trips to the ‘big’ grounds but the scoreline doesn’t really tell the whole story. They could easily have been two or three goals up had Luuk de Jong been more clinical. Remarkably Sevilla actually created more Expected Goals in that match than their opponents despite losing 4-0 but it will be of little comfort to Sevilla fans who have seen their side lose 3 of their last 4 league games.
Levante meanwhile were 2-1 winners on the road at Leganes in their last match. They were perhaps a little fortunate to claim all three points with a moment of major controversy sparking their opponents into asking for the game to be replayed with VAR appearing to fail to do its job due to technical difficulties. Levante are sitting comfortably in mid-table following that win, just 2 points behind their opponents here.
Sevilla look like they will be at full strength for this one. Julen Lopetegui has curiously overlooked Joan Jordan in some recent games despite the former Eibar man being arguably their most impressive player this season. He will compete with Oliver Torres for a starting berth. The visitors are likely to look to play on the break and are bolstered by the return of winger Hernani from suspension.
Sevilla vs Levante Predictions
Score Prediction: 3-1 Sevilla
Paco Lopez’s Levante were totally outclassed by Sevilla last season. It’s a much changed side they will be up against here but the home team still have plenty of quality in the middle of the park and in wide areas and they ought to create enough chances to win this one with a bit of breathing space.
