BARCELONA VS LEVANTE (Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips) / 27.04.2019

With a record of W3, D2 across their last five league matches, Barcelona are odds-on to take another huge step towards clinching the La Liga (LL) title. Overall, ‘Los Blaugranas’ have lost just twice this season, and are undefeated in league play since November (W17, D5).
Naturally, much of their success has come at the Nou Camp, where the Catalan club have registered just one defeat (W13, D3, L1) this term, and own the best attack with 48 goals scored, for an average of 2.82 goals per game.
Despite visiting the champions-elect on the back of a 4-0 win over Betis, Levante sit just three points above the relegation zone ahead of kick-off. Their recent form still makes for poor reading overall though, with that win ending a nine-game winless LL run (D4, L5) – though they had scored multiple goals in four of the five matches preceding the win.
Levante’s away record hasn’t been very inspiring, either. They are currently on a four-game winless run away from home (D1, L3) and they’ve conceded at least three goals in each of their last two away outings.
Players to watch: Goalless in Barcelona’s last two matches, Lionel Messi hasn’t gone three straight competitive games without scoring since April last year (all competitions).
Meanwhile, Roger Marti tops Levante’s scoring charts with 12 goals, though only four of those have come on the road.
Stat attack: Over half (six) of the past ten H2H meetings have seen over 3.5 goals scored.
However, only four of those ten games have witnessed both teams scoring.
Since the turn of the century, Barca have won their 13 home matches against Levante in all competitions.
Los Blaugranas have also scored two or more goals in 11 of those meetings.
Levante’s most recent league win against Barca came last season, when they won a 5-4 thriller.
