Levante were going great guns at home until their nine match unbeaten streak at Ciutat de Valencia was surprisingly ended by Osasuna at the weekend and Paco Lopez’ side look destined for another defeat here against table toppers Atletico Madrid.
Granotas turned in their worst display for some time against Los Rojillos who went into the game winless in their last ten away trips and they couldn’t have wished for worst opponents in midweek as they aim to bounce back.
Atletico made it nine wins from ten league matches after beating Granada 1-2 on Saturday, a result which solidified their five point advantage over cross-city rivals Real. This Wednesday’s clash represents one of their two games in hand and Los Colchoneros are unlikely to blow what seems a good opportunity to move further clear.
Diego Simeone’s men have won eight of their ten starts on the road this season (D1, L1) and with an extra day’s rest compared to the hosts, we simply can’t see Atleti slipping up.
Atleti have won five of the last six meetings between the sides (D1) and the odds for that trend to continue appear more than fair. This should be a routine evening for the heavy title favourites all things considered so we’re also predicting a 0-2 correct score.
