Barcelona vs Levante: Preview, Lineups, News
Barcelona is looking to seal another win when they back in LaLiga’s action. Barça looks to build on last week’s momentum as they play against Leganes. Barcelona has got off to an inconsistent start under new manager Quique Setién, They already lost 4 games this season, their most defeats at this stage of the LaLiga campaign since 2003/2004.
Quique Setien picked up wins in his first two matches as Barcelona boss, with the Catalan giants beating Granada and UD Ibiza in the league and Copa del Rey respectively to make it a positive start for Valverde’s replacement.
Under the new manager, Barça tends to dominate possession and move the ball around at pace, but installing such a system takes time.
Barcelona suffered a 2-0 loss at Valencia last weekend, though, and ultimately dropped to the second spot in the table when Real Madrid beat Real Valladolid.
The Spanish champions will look to keep the pressure on league leaders Real Madrid by defeating Levante on Sunday at Camp Nou.
Mayoral and Marti, Levante two strikers with 13 league goals between them during the 2019-20 campaign, and there is no question that the visitors are capable of harming the Catalan giants.
Barcelona’s attacking strength is bad news for the visitors. The Catalan giants have bagged 50 goals in La Liga, the best mark by some distance, and have been especially strong at home, where they average 3.5 goals per match.
