I think anyone who thinks this game is going to be easy is set to be greatly disappointed. For some reason we always struggle with Levante. And though they’re towards the bottom of the table, they’ve had a good recent run of form, including a very convincing win last weekend (granted against Almeria).
And of course, it could be tempting to think forward towards Barcelona’s visit to the RSP this coming weekend. To get caught up in that excitement and lose our focus. We can’t lose sight of the fact that today’s match against Levante is worth the very same 3 points as this weekend’s visit from old friends Ivan Rakitic, Dani Alves, Adriano, and Sir Lionel Messi.
Anyway, I’m nervous for this game and think it will be a test of our focus. It’s a test we have no excuse for not passing and anything less than 3 points will be a huge disappointment. To catch Valencia or Atletico there can be no slip ups.
Team list: Sergio Rico, David Soria, Diogo, Coke, Fernando Navarro, Tremoulinas, Pareja, Kolo, Carriço, Krychowiak, Iborra, Denis Suárez, Vitolo, Reyes, Bacca, Gameiro, Deulofeu and Aleix Vidal
