Levante welcomes Barcelona
Levante welcomes Barcelona in a first 1/8-final clash from the Spanish Copa del Rey. Let’s head out to the city of Valencia to see what’s the situation with these two sides in our winning soccer predictions.
Levante qualified for the 1/8-finals of the Copa del Rey after beating Lugo in the previous round of the competition. The first game in Lugo ended with a 1-1 draw, but in Valencia Levante enjoyed a comfortable 2-0 win at home. Coke and Raphael Dwamena scored the winning goals for Paco Lopez’ team.
Barcelona are the current holder of the trophy. Just as it was expected, in the previous round the Catalans didn’t face any trouble against Cultural Leonesa. They won the first game away from home with 1-0, while at the Camp Nou Ernesto Valverde’s team enjoyed a 4-1 win. Denis Suarez scored a brace for Los Cules, while Munir and Malcom also scored for Barca.
In La Liga Levante are doing decently so far. They are currently 10th in the league with 23 points won so far. But they are without a win in their last four games.
Meanwhile Barcelona are leading the standings with 40 points. Barca are showing a very good form lately, enjoying a run of five consecutive wins in the league. In their last game they celebrated a 2-1 win over Getafe.
These two teams met in Valencia very recently in a match from La Liga. Things didn’t go very well for Levante, who suffered a heavy 0-5 defeat at home. Lionel Messi scored a hattrick for Barcelona, while Luis Suarez and Gerard Pique also scored for the champions. Can they repeat now this performance?
These are our winning soccer predictions for the Copa del Rey fixture between Levante and Barcelona. We wish you good luck!
