Levante faces Atletico Madrid
Levante faces Atletico Madrid in Valencia in a fixture from the 31th round of La Liga. Let’s preview this fixture in the next few paragraphs.
Levante remain unbeaten since the league restarted after the COVID-19 pandemic. They won five points in the last three games, which allowed them to climb to 11th place in the standings. At this moment Levante have 38 points and a record of 11 wins, 5 draws and 14 defeats. It seems that the manager Paco Lopez prepared his players well for the restart of the league, because so far Levante are doing well.
Few days ago Levante enjoyed their 11th win for the season. They paid a visit to Espanyol in Barcelona and won the game with 3-1. Borja Mayoral and Enis Bardhi scored for the visitors, while Espanyol’s Adria Pedrosa scored himself an own goal.
The defender Ivan Lopez remain injured for Levante, so he’s not avaliable for selection by the manager Paco Lopez.
Atletico Madrid are still in the race for a Top 4 finish, so Los Colchoneros will aim for the win here. Atletico won their last two matches in the league which led them to taking the third place off Sevilla’s hands. In their last game Diego Simeone’s boys hosted Real Valladolid and celebrated a 1-0 win at the Wanda Metropolitano. The game was going for a draw, but Vitolo scored a winner in the 81th minute after an assist from Diego Costa. Costa started from the bench, but he proved how important he is by providing the decisive assist for the big hero Vitolo.
Felipe and Sime Vrsaljko remain sidelined for Atletico Madrid, so cannot be picked by the manager Diego Simeone.
Against Levante Atletico Madrid will aim to achieve their third consecutive win since the COVID-19 pandemic and the restart of La Liga. But they have another team in a good shape against them.
