Barcelona to beat Levante and over 3.5 goals 13/10 in Thursday’s Copa del Rey tie
Competition: Copa del Rey
Market: Barcelona win and over 3.5 goals
Odds: 13/10 @ Bet 365
Looking to book their spot in the quarterfinals of this year’s Copa del Rey, Barcelona will travel to the Estadio Ciudad de Valencia on Thursday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Levante may have enjoyed a bright start to their La Liga campaign, Paco López’s side have struggled with their form entering the New Year. Winning just six of their 18 league matches this season, scoring 30 goals and conceding 34 in return, Levante now hold the second worst defensive record in Spain’s top-tier. Along with now conceding nine goals in their last two matches against Barcelona, the Red and Blues have also failed to win any of their last four matches across all competitions. More worrying, Levante have now managed to win just one of their last five home matches against La Liga opposition.
As for the visitors, Barcelona are once again enjoying another bright campaign both in Europe and domestically. Winning 12 of their 18 La Liga matches and losing just twice, the defending Copa del Rey champions now hold a five-point advantage at the top of Spain’s top-tier. Scoring 50 league goals this season, Barcelona unsurprisingly hold the best-attacking record in La Liga. As for their recent run of form, along with picking up a 5-0 win over Levante last month, the Catalunya based side are enjoying a three-match winning run and have scored two or more goals in seven of their last eight games.
