Levante will face Barcelona at Estadi Ciutat de València at Copa del Rey – 1/8 Final. Levante against Barcelona is the match with big interest after their previous 5:0 match in Spanish La Liga. Review our thoughts on this match here below.
Levante is a middle-class team with several skillful players. They playing form defense in counter attacks more often than controlling the game. Granatos will play against Atletico Madrid in next round of La Liga, so they can give some opportunities for reserve players at Copa del Rey. Levante has won only two games in last 10.
Copa del Rey is not a priority Tournament for Granatos, therefore they will meet Barcelona with the defensive line-up. Home team will try to counter-attack because they couldn’t play open football against Catalonian’s.
Barcelona playing beautiful football in Spain and Champions League. This year they have a much easier way to take a Title in La Liga because of Real Madrid poor form. Catalonian’s have all chances to make a double or even triple once again and win La Liga, Copa del Rey and maybe Champions League. Barcelona as always great at passing 88% and making 15 shots in average during this season matches. Leonel Messi, Ousmane Dembele, and Luis Suarez are the best team players and one of the greatest in Europe.
Copa del Rey was always one of the priority Titles for Barcelona. Since this year they have won 4 Titles in a row and 30 in total, so they can make the fifth one! Last year Barcelona have won against middle-class teams with big results, consequently, it may be repeated.
In 2018 year these teams have met 3 times. One of the meetings finished with unexpected result 5:4 win by Levante. Two other matches have finished with confident Barcelona wins. One time win doesn’t mean that Levante will show this result again.
