FC Barcelona travel to Levante looking to enhance their three-point lead at the top, having played a game less than second placed Atletico Madrid.

Having thrashed Valencia 7-0 in the Copa del Rey to equal the record set by Rinus Michel’s side, Luis Enrique’s men are closing in on the record of 28 games without a loss by Pep Guardiola’s men.
Barcelona manager Luis Enrique will take charge of his 100th game for the Catalans when they take on Levante, and his impressive record at the club has seen him win five out of six trophies on offer, as well as recording 79 wins and just 9 losses during the period.

Stats:

  • Luis Enrique has managed FC Barcelona for 99 games, now and has won 78, drawn 11 and lost only 9
  • The Catalans have scored 280 goals in those 99 games, conceding a meagre 72.
  • FC Barcelona have won their last 10 out off 11 games against Levante, scoring at least four in their last five games in all competitions.
  • The Catalans are on a 14 game unbeaten run in the league.
  • Levante have conceded at least 2 goals in their last 3 league meetings.

Prediction:

Levante 0-5 FC Barcelona

The Catalans are in fine form, and Levante are at the rock bottom of La Liga, having conceded the third highest number of goals in the league. To expect the Catalans to not brush them aside will be like expecting the sun to not rise in the east. In all probability, the trio of Suarez, Messi and Neymar will have a field day on Sunday.

Odds (Bet365)

Levane win: 14/1
Draw: 13/2
FC Barcelona win: 2/11
