Levante vs Sevilla
KICK OFF: Sunday 23rd Sept 2018 | 12:00 CET
La Liga wk5 | Ciutat de Valencia
Will Sevilla prevail and outscore against a stubborn Levante?
Both teams are capable of causing damage, so expect an open encounter on Sunday afternoon. Goals will most likely take centre stage, and the winner will have to outscore their opponent.
There’s a reason why Levante are usually involved in high-scoring games; it’s because they relish offensive football. They are characteristically good at it when playing at home if that famous 5 – 4 defeat of Barcelona on 13th May 2018 is anything to go by. Levante has scored in all their league games so far and has found the net in all their last sixteen games. They are odds-on to score in this one.
Sevilla suffered defeat on this ground last time out, and they will be all out to change that. They welcome Real Madrid in their next match, which they know will be a challenge to get a positive result. That means a win against Levante is crucial. Defensive midfielder Roque Mesa is suspended for this clash, so French signing Maxime Gonalons may start. The attacking quality is there with Andre Silva, Sarabia, Ben Yedder and Nolito providing plenty of options.
Goals at both ends are expected, backing Sevilla to record a vital win can pay off in this one.
