Levante vs Sevilla Preview
The second round of fixtures following the restart of LaLiga kicks off in unfamiliar surroundings on Monday. Levante will be playing their home fixtures, almost 100 miles away from their usual ground in the town of La Nucia, near Alicante. Their first visitors are Sevilla, fresh from their derby win last time out.
Levante also got back up and running with a derby and they scored late to claim a creditable draw at the Mestalla. That though will be the last they see of their home city this season and in theory that puts them at a disadvantage with Real Madrid the only other team not playing in their usual stadium. With 34 points on the board though, Levante are unlikely to end up getting sucked into the relegation battle so there isn’t huge pressure on this game for them.
Sevilla by contrast are fighting for Champions League qualification and so far results have gone in their favour. They scored twice in the 2nd Half to defeat city rivals Betis in the first game back on Thursday night and they should be able to take confidence from their strong away record heading into this game. They’ve won 50% of their road games in LaLiga this term and only Real Madrid have collected more points away from home.
Both sides may consider some light rotation with managing fitness levels going to be key for all teams over this busy period. Sevilla could bring in Youssef En-Nesyri to lead the line for example but should stick with derby match-winner Lucas Ocampos who scored one and created the other in the 2-0 victory against Betis.

Levante vs Sevilla Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-0 Sevilla
Levante performed pretty well in the Valencia derby but Sevilla look capable of turning them over here. They’ve had an extra day to get ready for this game which could be significant given none of these players had even played a friendly match before being thrust into action for the first time in three months. They also have greater strength in depth to manage the situation and with this match taking place at a neutral venue, Sevilla look the more likely victors.
