The Catalan giants lost against Cadiz last weekend and are currently down in ninth position in the table, while Levante occupy 17th, having struggled for points in the opening months of the season. There is no getting away from the fact that it has been a desperately disappointing start to the season for Barca, who have won four, drawn two and lost four of their 10 league matches to collect 14 points, which has left them down in ninth position in the table heading into the next set of fixtures.
Ronald Koeman’s side do have games in hand over a lot of the teams both above and around them, but they are now 12 points behind leaders Atletico Madrid on the same number of matches. The Catalan giants recorded a 4-0 win over Osasuna in their last home league game at the end of November but could not build on the result, suffering a 2-1 loss away to Cadiz last weekend.
Barca also lost 3-0 at home to Juventus in the Champions League on Tuesday night, although they had already booked their spot in the knockout round of the competition. Koeman’s side will be desperate to return to winning ways ahead of a tough game against high-flying Real Sociedad on December 16, but they have lost two of their last five league clashes with Levante.
Barcelona should have expected a difficult evening at Levante, who have had a dramatic revival under boss Paco Lopez. When he was promoted from his role as reserve-team boss in March, the club were only one point above the relegation zone.
But they have now won eight of their 10 games since his appointment – to take them 17 points clear of the bottom three. Lopez said it would be “historic” for Levante, in their first season back in the top flight following promotion, to beat Barcelona and there were big celebrations at the final whistle on a famous night for the club nicknamed the Frogs.
