Blaugrana is hoping to snap a two-game losing skid on Sunday night, so check out our Barcelona vs Levante Preview and see what’s on tap for this LaLiga match.
Barcelona Recent Form & Team News
Barcelona’s torrid start to their LaLiga campaign continued last Saturday with a 2-1 defeat to Cádiz. That was followed by a 3-0 home hammering by Juventus – marking their worst home defeat since May 2013. History dictates, however, that they can leave that all behind them, with Barcelona’s average winning margin across their perfect return of 12 H2H LL home wins this century being 2.75 goals (HT: 1.50). In turn, they are deemed likelier to overcome the -3 handicap than fail to win.
Regardless of any crisis, six out of Barcelona’s eight LL victories attained since the start of July have seen them beat the -2 handicap. Additionally, they have averaged 4.33 goals per match across their last three home league victories. Still, they won both halves just once despite that impressive strike rate.
Player to watch: Martin Braithwaite has averaged 1.33 goals per match across Barcelona’s last three competitive victories.
Hot stat: All of Barcelona’s last 11 LL home matches to see both teams score (W7, D2, L2) have witnessed at least one half produce exactly two match goals.
Ronald Koeman cannot count on Ousmane Dembele (muscle), Ansu Fati (knee), Gerard Pique (knee), and Sergi Roberto (thigh).
Levante Recent Form & Team News
Levante ended the last league round above the relegation zone on goal difference, after thrashing Getafe 3-0, and beating the -2 handicap in a league match for the first time since May 2019. In a further sign of encouragement, Levante have recovered thrice (60% of the time) after conceding first in their last five LaLiga away games (W1, D2, L2).
Primed for a Catalan backlash, the visitors have lost 60% of their last 25 LL away games entered as underdogs (W6, D4, L15). In addition to seeing three of their four LL defeats this term come with a two-goal margin, Levante have conceded 2+ goals in nine of their last 12 league trips here, scoring just once before HT.
Player to watch: Rúben Vezo accounts for Levante’s last away league equalizer from open play.
Paco Lopez will be without Jose Campana (thigh) and Cheick Doukoure (Achilles tendon). Enis Bardhi is questionable to feature due to a hernia.
