Levante vs Sevilla Preview
Sevilla travel to Valencia this week as they bid to stay in the title race by winning yet another game. With the so-called “big three” announcing their intentions to join a European Super League, it’s pretty clear that Sevilla will now have even stronger backing from neutrals and they have shown they are capable of at least putting pressure on the top sides.
This may not be a bad time to be travelling to the Estadi Ciutat de Valencia. Levante are heading towards another safe mid-table finish but put in a pretty abject showing at the weekend, losing 5-1 at home to local rivals Villarreal. That was a rare off-day in an otherwise pretty impressive campaign from Paco Lopez’s side but he’ll be very keen to ensure they don’t simply fade away now the finish line is in sight.
They’ve lost 4 of their last 6 in LaLiga overall but are still situated in 9th place. Perhaps the demands of a hectic season which has also seen them progress to a Copa del Rey Semi-Final are starting to catch up on some of their older players. They’ve also had to deal with several injuries to midfield players and that has perhaps just made them a bit easier to play against.
Sevilla will certainly feel as though they can win the battle in the middle of the park here. They too could have easily started to drop their intensity levels after losing their Copa del Rey Semi-Final in painful circumstances. However Julen Lopetegui’s men have won 5 of their last 6 in LaLiga and would temporarily at least climb above Barcelona and go level on points with Real Madrid with victory here.
With Los Blancos struggling with injuries and showing signs of fatigue and Atleti having been in pretty awful form prior to their victory over Eibar, Sevilla ought to believe they are capable of finishing above at least one of the clubs above them and that would still be significant in proving these three clubs are not simply too strong for the other 17 in LaLiga. Finishing above all three seems unlikely but Sevilla will be hoping they can chalk up another win here and stay in this title race for as long as possible.
Head to Head
- Last 6 Competitive Meetings: 5 Sevilla Wins, 1 Draw.
- Sevilla won 1-0 in the meeting earlier in the season.
- The last 4 meetings in Valencia have produced one win each and two draws.
- All of the last 5 meetings in Valencia have seen both teams score.
Carlos Clerc is suspended for Levante who are missing the likes of Jorge Miramon, Jose Campana, Nemanja Radoja and Nikola Vukcevic to injury.
Sevilla should be able to name their strongest XI here unless Julen Lopetegui opts for some light rotation.

Levante vs Sevilla Predictions
Score Prediction: Levante 1-3 Sevilla
Levante are looking a bit like a side which may drift now and lose a lot of matches between now and the end of the season. With a number of first team regulars missing for the hosts, it’s hard to see any other result than an away victory for Julen Lopetegui’s side who have won over half of their road games in LaLiga this term.
