Foot Predictions shows the La Liga clash on Saturday between Atletico Madrid and Levante, including hunches, preview and possible lineups.
In what was once a particularly strange La Liga campaign this Saturday, the league leaders Atletico Madrid will play raise for the second time in less than a week.
Due to the rescheduling of La Liga in September, Levante managed to hold Diego simeoneAtleti equalized 1-1 on Wednesday night. This weekend, Simeone aims to take revenge on Wanda Metropolitano.
Following an opening goal by poacher Levante Enis Bardhistar midfielder Marcos LlorenteSimeone’s goal in the 37th minute saved Simeone’s blush, but it was not enough to win the tie.
The stalemate was Atleti’s second draw in three games, a terrible shape by Simeone’s current standards.
Masking his frustration after the game, Simeone told the press: “We are facing a tough opponent who does things well. They have improved defensively, are well organized and use the ball well ”.
Despite recent results, Atleti remains six points clear at the top of the table. Three points this weekend could lead Los Rojiblancos to extend their advantage even further.
Fortunately for Atleti, Simeone’s team avoided defeat in the last 12 home games against Valencian teams, a streak that dates back to April 2017.
For Levante, 11th, the midweek standoff opened what could be an important week for the Valencian team.
One point against Atleti is considered lucky, but any other point would certainly boost Paco Lopezon the side of dreamland.
However, three points on Saturday may be a little too much for Levante. Lopez’s men have been without a win in their last 14 away games against Atleti.
However, Lopez can become a striker in form Roger Marti to present the goods. Roger scored three of Levante’s last four away goals.
