Atletico Madrid’s lead at the top of La Liga already looks to be a healthy one, but they will be looking to extend their lead at the summit on Wednesday evening as they travel to Levante for one of their games in hand.
La Liga Preview
Atletico Madrid have enjoyed a season to remember so far, but they will be aware that no titles are handed out at the half way stage of the campaign. They will need to maintain the form that they have shown in the first half of the season, and continue to run their rivals into the ground. They currently have a five-point advantage over Real Madrid, but they can extend that advantage to eight points in midweek with a victory on the road against Levante. Their form couldn’t be any better, as they have won five of their last six, which includes their win last time out against Granada. It was a much sterner task for Atletico on that occasion, as they came up against a resilient Granda side. However, strikes from Marcos Llorente and Angel Correa proved to be decisive in the victory on the road.
Levante have been a side that have really struggled for wins so far this season, as they have won just six of the 22 games that they have played. Two of those wins have come in their previous six outings, but they welcome Atletico having not picked up a win in their last two. The competitive nature of La Liga this season means that Levante still aren’t safe from relegation, as they are just six points above the drop zone, and their confidence coming into this game may be low after being beaten by Osasuna in their last La Liga fixture.
Levante vs Atletico Madrid Head To Head
Atletico Madrid have a positive record against Levante, as they have won five of the previous six against their midweek opponents. They have scored three goals in the last two games against Levante, which includes a 2-1 win in the last game between the sides, which took place in June.
Levante vs Atletico Madrid Prediction
Levante’s inability to pick up wins throughout the La Liga season ensures that they will be outsiders in this fixture on Wednesday. Atletico should have the quality to take a routine win on the road, and Luis Suarez could be back on the scoresheet for the league leaders.
