Levante vs Atletico Madrid Preview

The Tuesday action in LaLiga kicks off in La Nucia where two sides who are unbeaten since the restart face off. Levante will be thrilled to have now all but secured their safety with the disadvantage of playing their home games away from their usual ground a worry heading into the resumption. This will be tough for them though against an Atleti side that has found some form.

The hosts impressively won 3-1 at Espanyol at the weekend. A result which moved them 12 points clear of the relegation zone. Paco Lopez can now truly start planning for another top flight campaign next term but motivation could become an issue over the final few weeks with not much to play for now. They are bidding to complete a famous hat-trick here though which should provide some inspiration having already beaten both Barcelona and Real Madrid at home this season.

Atletico Madrid though come into this game with plenty of momentum too. They hit five past Osasuna at El Sadar in their most recent road game with a rare display of clinical finishing from Diego Simeone’s side. They had to work harder for the points against Real Valladolid on Saturday though with a late Vitolo strike the difference between the two teams at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Diego Simeone does have the luxury of a squad which enables rotation without necessarily weakening the team. We should see some changes again from the visitors here with Stefan Savic likely to rotate in at centre-back while Koke is expected to be fit to start in midfield. Levante don’t have such depth and Lopez will be reluctant to rock the boat too much following such an impressive win but Ruben Rochina is back from a ban and should start in midfield.

We have match previews for every game in LaLiga between now and the end of this season.

Levante vs Atletico Madrid Predictions

Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw

Levante have been a real thorn in the side of the big clubs this season and they could be dangerous opponents for Atleti with Paco Lopez’s side carrying real belief right now and not having any real pressure on them. Atleti have 7 points from 3 games but there was only really that 2nd Half at El Sadar where they’ve fully convinced in the final third and they may have to settle for a point here.
