      Analysis: Levante vs Barcelona (07 February 2016)
      « Reply #1 on: February 05 2016, 15:21 »

      Levante and Barcelona meet at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia, in a match for the 23th round of the Primera División. Barcelona got a home win by (4‑1), in the last league head‑to‑head, played in 20‑09‑2015. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the away team, since they have a record of 4 wins and 2 draws in the last 6 matches. Sure enough, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 21‑09‑2014, in a match for the Primera División, Barcelona won by (0‑5). The goals of the match were scored by Neymar (34' ), I. Rakitić (44' ), Sandro Ramírez (57' ), Pedro (64' ) and L. Messi (77' ) for Barcelona. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, as both teams present significant differences between home and away performances.

      Analysis of Levante

      The home team is currently in the 20th position of the league, with 17 points won, after 4 wins, 5 draws and 13 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Las Palmas, by (3‑2). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Sevilla, by (3‑1). This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 3 draws and 10 losses in away matches; against 3 wins, 6 draws and 6 losses at their stadium. In the last 10 home league matches Levante has a record of 3 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses, so they have won 12 points out of 30 possible. There are a few recurrent results in their home league matches at half‑time: 0‑0 (4 out of 11 matches) and 0‑1 (5 out of 11 matches). They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in all of the last 10 matches for this competition. They haven't been able to score the first goal. In fact, they have only opened up the score in 5 of the last 22 matches for the Primera División, they have reached half‑time in advantage in 3 of those 5 matches and have held on to the lead in 4. They have conceded the first goal in 16 of their 22 matches for this competition, and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 11 home matches for this competition there are 2 periods that stand out: they have scored 5 of their 12 goals between minutes (46'‑60'); they have conceded 6 of their 17 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

      Levante comes to this match lacking motivation, after a 3-1 away loss against Sevilla. Their best quality is the way they usually defend set pieces. But they usually need many goal opportunities to score, since they lack offensive efficiency. The team prefers attacking through the left wing, making use of the offensive support of Toño. Absent due to injuries will be Rubén García, Pedro López, Victor Casadesús and José Mari.

      Analysis of Barcelona

      The away team is currently in the 1st position of the league, with 51 points won, after 16 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Málaga, by (1‑2). In the last match, they won in a home match against Atlético Madrid, by (2‑1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses in away matches, with 24 goals scored and 12 conceded; against 14 wins and 1 draw at their stadium, with 60 goals scored and 8 conceded. In their last match, for the Copa del Rey, they got a home win against Valencia by (7‑0). In the last 9 away league matches Barcelona has a record of 5 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, so they have won 17 points out of 27 possible.

      In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 5 away matches. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (5 out of 9 matches). Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 21 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 6 times but have turned the score around in 4.

      Barcelona comes to this match after a fantastic 7-0 home win over Valencia, in a match for Copa del Rey, with great performances from Suaréz and Messi, who scored 4 and 3 goals respectively. The only absent player should be Rafinha, who is recovering from an injury. Despite this, Barcelona should be in maximum strength to face Levante. Unlike their opponents, they usually create goal opportunities easily and score many goals per match. The offensive trio of the away team, Messi, Suárez y Neymar, is famous worldwide for its quality and efficiency, so as in the match against Valencia the away team should score a few goals.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario is that there will be a few goals in this match. There is a big quality difference between the two teams, so Barcelona should take advantage of the great form moment of its key players to win comfortably. Therefore, the away team should score more than 2 goals, taking advantage of the weaknesses of the home team.
