Levante vs Atletico Madrid Predictions

Atleti overcame Bayern on away goals this week to move into a Madrid derby Champions League final at the end of the month but they still have 2 league games to negotiate and they will be determined to win them both which would make them champions in the unlikely event of a Barcelona slip-up. Atleti have won their last 6 league matches but have had to fight hard in recent weeks with 1-0 victories coming in all of their last 3 league games. They’ve not conceded a goal in over 400 minutes of league football and have an incredible overall defensive record of only 16 goals conceded in 36 matches this season.

Levante by contrast have let in 66 and were relegated on Monday night when they slipped to a 3-1 defeat at Malaga. It brought to an end their 6 year stay in the top flight but they leave with plenty of good memories and are in better financial footing than they were the last time they dropped out of this league.

However to suggest that Atletico will have a comfortable afternoon here is likely to prove false for numerous reasons. Levante have been actually quite strong at home in 2016. They’ve won 5 of their 9 home league games in this calendar year and lost just twice against Barca and Real Madrid, neither of whom won comfortably. They have an excellent home record against Atletico Madrid and haven’t lost to them during their current stay in the top flight. Atleti boss Diego Simeone will be absent due to a touchline ban also so there are several ingredients that suggest this could be a tricky game for the visitors.

Therefore backing Levante +2 Goal Handicap at Evens makes sense particularly given all of Atleti’s last four wins were by a single goal.
