With the title race in Spain looking more like a rollercoaster ride, we’re reaching the final three games of the season, starting off with Barcelona’s trip to Levante. The Blaugrana have a chance to move into first place with a win here, but is it gonna be just a walk in the park for them, or a full-blown battle?
Levante come into the game with the worst recent record in the league - in the last five, they’ve recorded four loses and one draw. Coach Paco Lopez will hope his players can bring back the days of old and cause an upset as they have in recent clashes at the Estadi Ciutat de València. Although they’re in 14th, there is still a small chance that they might end up relegated if they don’t win any points by the end of the season. With the threat of relegation looming larger with each passing game, Levante must do their best to keep Barcelona at bay.
The Cules on the other hand are having a hit-and-miss season according to their standards, with off-field turmoil causing a problem or two. Barcelona are still in the title race and a win here coupled with positive results elsewhere can get them in the lead with just two games to play. Head coach Ronald Koeman will hope he can bring glory in his first full season with the club, and cast all doubts regarding his ability to lead the team aside.
Both teams have had a fair number of injuries hampering their progress, and the case is the same for this game. Radoja and Vukcevic are out for Levante, with Campana a doubt pending a medical. Barca will be without Coutinho, Fati, and Busquets.
