Tournament: Copa del Rey. 1/8 final.
The last participant of the ¼ final of the Copa del Rey will be determined on Thursday evening on Camp Nou where Barcelona will host Levante. A week ago Blaugrana was playing on Ciudad de Valencia in semi starting line-up and has got two goals in HT. They have managed to return one goal but we doubt that Ernesto Ververde and the whole team are satisfied with such a result.
Of course, this defeat doesn’t influence on their status as a favorite but in return leg the team will probably invite Leo Messi and Luis Alberto Suárez as the Catalans experience some weakness in defense without them.
Levante perfectly understands that the rival is strong and accepts the fact that it won’t be able to dictate the rules. Levante will have to quit the attacking manner and to play from defense. Barcelona will surely score the goal. But any team that is coming to play against Barcelona and which is playing from defense has all chances not to be destroyed, if the leaders of Barcelona won’t score the first goal from the very first minutes of the match.
We are absolutely sure that the hosts will move further as Levante has never even drawn any match in the capital of Catalonia but we think that in this match the guests will manage to leave the match without losing their football dignity.
Our tip: total under (4.5 goals) – odds 1.71 188Bet
