Levante vs Sevilla Preview
Levante will look to keep up the pace in their attempt at the great escape this midweek as they welcome Sevilla to the Ciutat de Valencia stadium. Julen Lopetegui’s side will be hoping to grab a win here in order to get their Champions League push back on track after throwing away three points against Real Madrid at the weekend.
Levante come into this match after a fantastic performance against relegation rivals Granada on the morning of Easter Sunday. Jose Luis Morales was at his best and slotted away a penalty in a 4-1 win for Los Granotes which brought them to within four points of safety.
Alessio Lisci’s men have upped their performances in recent weeks and now have an outside chance of avoiding the drop. The club had not won a single match in LaLiga until January 8th, but since then have won five against both top sides and fellow relegation candidates alike and will be dreaming of their continuity in LaLiga beyond this season.
Sevilla’s last encounter came at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in one of the games of the season against Real Madrid. Julen Lopetegui’s side impressed in the first half and went into the break two goals up, however a second half comeback led by Rodrygo Goes brought Los Blancos a 3-2 win.
Only months ago it seemed that this season could be one of the greatest in Sevilla’s history, with the Andalusians keeping pace with Real Madrid in LaLiga as well as being one of the favourites to win the Europa League and Copa Del Rey. However, they have failed to maintain their league form post-Christmas and disappointing losses to West Ham and city rivals Real Betis respectively knocked Julen Lopetegui’s side out of both cup competitions.
The reverse encounter between Levante and Sevilla brought an incredible 5-3 win for Sevilla at the Sanchez Pizjuan in late October, a match which saw “El Comandante” Morales bag a brace and Oliver Torres score with one of the goals of the season.

Levante vs Sevilla Predictions
Score Prediction: Levante 2-2 Sevilla
Levante always seem to be able to turn it on against the top sides and with relegation a real threat, Alessio Lisci’s side will have to go all out for a result in this match. In six matches against the top four this season, Levante have picked up five points in games which included a combined 27 goals, so an exciting, end to end encounter can be expected here.
