Levante vs Sevilla Predictions and Betting Tips
The Estadio Ciudad de Valencia is the stage for this highly-anticipated encounter as Levante take on red-hot Sevilla. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
Sevilla’s 1-0 victory back in October stretched their unbeaten run in this fixture to seven games. This, plus the away side’s run of form heading into this game points towards a tough day for the hosts.
Highly-anticipated encounter on the cards
The home side were humiliated last time out by Villarreal, losing by five goals to 1. This is only a show of their inconsistency which has put them in 9th place and no chance at European football. However, a top-half finish would certainly be good for the side heading into next season but this would prove difficult in recent weeks with the team in and around also keen on achieving this feat.
One could make an argument of Sevilla being the most in-form team on the land as they head into this game having won five of their last six games. A win here takes them level on points with Real Madrid and two ahead of Barcelona having played two more games than the Catalans. Two first-half goals from Fernando and En-Nesyri was enough for all three points against Sociedad last weekend as Lopetegui’s side ran out 2-1 winners.
