Sevilla will face with Levante in 16th round of Spanish Primera and must go for a victory in order to recoup defeat from previous game when on their trip to Madrid were smashed by title defenders, in that duel conceded five goals, all of them in first half and simple didn't had an answer for great attack of the opponents, now are facing with a team which aren't in some great form and must try to achieve victory and get back on winning tracks, in European competitions were good and in Champions league group E ended at second spot and in first match of knockout stage will host Manchester United.
Anyway until then they still have time, now must earn points in Spain and for this game are huge favorites, they defeated Levante last time when they met at this stadium two seasons ago and i'm pretty sure that will manage to repeat that and achieve 10th victory in league in this campaign. In last 11 games they were defeated two times but that happened against two strongest teams in league, Real Madrid and Barcelona, here against Levante which just came back among elite i'm pretty sure that can take points and this shouldn't be very hard match for Sevilla, still they for sure don't want to underrate opponents. Defenders Pareja (2/0), Carrico (3/0), Carole (5/0), Corchia (8/0) and midfielder Montoya (1/0) are all injured and will remain sidelined for this match.
Levante on the other hand returned into strongest Spanish league after only one season in Segunda, they won the title there and won direct promotion but it won't be very easy to survive, currently are at 15th position at the table with 16 points out of 15 matches and three points separates them from red zone, they can't brag with their results and in last 12 games celebrated only two times and only one of them was in league on the road over Las Palmas in November, here against Sevilla must play some really great football to avoid another defeat and remain safe.
In last game they were defeated at home by Bilbao, in match where were good but in the end failed to take points, before that on their trip to Malaga earned one point after goalless draw. Only three victories out of 15 matches can't be good, however they got seven draws and still are safe but to keep it that way must show something more, in duel with Sevilla don't have much chances but problems is that are struggling with even weaker teams, their defense wasn't great and i just don't expect that can prevent hosts from scoring. Guests are coming here without injured defenders Ivan Lopez (3/0), Moore (5/0), midfielders Doukoure (10/1), Bardhi (14/4), forwards Alegria (9/0) and Roger (0/0).
Sevilla must win this match and forget that very convincing previous defeat, they are huge favorites and should grab points in front of their crowd, guests are team which returned from Segunda are are struggling so i'm quiet sure that Sevilla will win this duel with few goals margin.
