Atletico Madrid: D-L-W-W-L
Levante continued their miserable start to the season over the weekend when they were beaten 5-3 by Sevilla.
The loss extended their winless run in the season to ten games, leaving them sitting in 19th place and deep in the relegation mud.
They have taken just five points from the available 30 in the league, but will be hoping to pull off an upset against the defending champions.
Although Javier Pereira’s side have a slightly better home record having lost just once in four home games, they are still without a win at home this season (D3).
Meanwhile, Roger Marti, Jose Campana, and Sergio Postigo are injured and have been ruled out of this game while Mickael Malsa is also carrying a knock and is unlikely to be risked in this match.
Possible Levante starting line-ups
Aitor Fernandez; Carlos Clerc, Shkodran Mustafi, Ruben Vezo, Jorge Miramon; Pablo Martinez, Nemanja Radoja, Gonzalo Melero, Jorge de Frutos; Jose Luis Morales, Roberto Soldado
Diego Simeone’s defending champions could only salvage a 2-2 draw in their last game against Real Sociedad to keep their title defence alive.
The visitors are entering this game in patchy form after winning just two of their last five league games and will be desperate to pick up all three points here.
The defending champions are fourth on the standings but are only three points off top-spot with a game in hand.
Although they are not particularly flying, they are also not having a terrible season as they have lost just once in their opening nine LL matches (W5, D3). Also, they have now found the back of the net in ten of their last 12 league matches, netting exactly two goals on nine occasions.
Although they haven’t kept an away clean sheet in four attempts, they’ll still be expecting to taste victory here against a side they’ve lost to just once in the past eight H2Hs (W5, D2).
Meanwhile, Marcos Llorente and Stefan Savic have been ruled out of this fixture through injury.
Possible Atletico Madrid starting line-ups
Jan Oblak; Mario Hermoso, Jose Gimenez, Felipe; Kieran Trippier, Yannick Carrasco, Koke, Rodrigo De Paul, Thomas Lemar; Joao Felix, Luis Suarez.
Levante are having a poor season and are entering this tie in the worst possible way, leaving Atletico Madrid with an easy job to do on paper.
