Atletico Madrid vs Levante predictions, H2H and match preview for this Saturday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as Los Rojiblancos aim to close in on the top two.
Atletico Madrid vs Levante Preview
The first match of the new decade at the Wanda Metropolitano sees Levante come to town to take on Atleti. It’s a match the hosts will clearly be expected to win but Diego Simeone will be well aware that this Levante side has consistently proved to be a real match for the big guns having claimed some notable scalps already this term.
It hasn’t been a great season for Atleti so far but they did end 2019 on a more encouraging note with Champions League progress and back-to-back league victories to round off what was a very successful decade for them. A 2-1 win at the Benito Villamarin last time out pushed them back up to 4th but they remain 7 points behind leaders Barcelona heading into this match.
Levante have already beaten Barcelona this season and they were also winners away to high-flying Real Sociedad so they do have form when it comes to winning matches which they’ve headed into as major underdogs. Consistency hasn’t exactly been their strong point but Paco Lopez will still be more than happy with how this season is panning out given they also ended 2019 with back-to-back league wins to move into the top half.
They will be up against an Atleti side that should be close to full strength here with Diego Simeone hoping to have Koke back from a hamstring injury. Joao Felix is likely to partner Alvaro Morata in attack for Los Rojiblancos who may look to add fresh attacking firepower this month given their problems scoring goals.
Atletico Madrid vs Levante Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-0 Atletico
Levante have been effective against sides that come out and attack them this season but it’s perhaps telling that their recent away games include a heavy defeat at Getafe and a loss at Athletic Club. Those two sides are more in the Atleti mould and it seems likely that the hosts will have enough to nullify Levante’s threat here and win the game.
