The 2020-21 edition of La Liga is back in action this week as Sevilla take on Levante at the Ciutat de Valencia on Wednesday. Sevilla have enjoyed an excellent season so far and are the favourites to win this game.
Levante find themselves in ninth place in the La Liga standings at the moment and have been fairly inconsistent this season. The Valencia-based side suffered a shocking 5-1 defeat against Levante last weekend and cannot afford a similar result in this match.
Sevilla, on the other hand, are in fourth place in the league table and have an outside chance of winning the La Liga title at the moment. The Andalusian giants edged Real Sociedad to a 2-1 victory in their previous game and will be confident ahead of this fixture.
Levante vs Sevilla Head-to-Head
Sevilla have a good record against Levante and have won 12 games out of a total of 23 matches played between the two teams. Levante have managed only four victories against Sevilla and will need to be at their best in this match.
The previous meeting between the two teams took place in October last year and ended in a 1-0 victory for Sevilla. Youssef En-Nesyri scored the only goal on the day and will want to make his mark on this match.

Levante vs Sevilla Prediction
Sevilla have been exceptional under Julen Lopetegui this season and will be intent on giving Spain's footballing giants a run for their money in the coming months. The likes of Lucas Ocampos and Youssef En-Nesyri can be lethal on their day and will have to step up this week.
Levante can punch above their weight but have struggled to impose themselves on La Liga in recent weeks. Sevilla are the better team at the moment and should be able to win this match.
Prediction: Levante 1-3 Sevilla
