Levante v Atletico Madrid Preview, Primera La Liga, Sunday 4th May 2014

Levante are now safe from the drop as of last weekend when they earned a draw away from home to Elche. They are now sitting mid table and no longer need to be looking over their shoulders even if Almeria do win all of their remaining games and Levante lose their own, the new FIFA rules would rule in favour of Levante with their positive results over Almeria and of course their superior goal difference.

Atletico Madrid are in line to win their first Primera title since the 1995/1996 season but still have some huge challenges in front of them with an away visit to Barcelona who themselves are wanting to take the title as their own. They do have a game to lose however so a win away to Levante this Sunday and another at home to Malaga the following week will be enough to secure them that title they have dreamed of for so long. On top of that honor the club are also now in the Champions League final and set to play local rivals Real Madrid which is due to be played on the 24th of May.

Levante have a few injuries for this game with the first being Babacar Diawara who is suffering with his calf. We then have Spaniard David Navarro who has a pulled hamstring while the last player on the list is Andreas Ivanschitz who has a pulled thigh muscle.

Atletico Madrid Team News:

Atletico Madrid only have one player missing for this game after Juanfran see straight red in the 90th minute against Valencia in an away 1 – 0 win. It was a needless sending off with the player missing the Champions League semi final second leg as well as the trip to Malaga next week.

That said it does look like we can be promised some goals by either side come Sunday afternoon.

Atletico Madrid: W W D W W

As we can see above it is La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid who are the team in better form here with their draw earned at home in the Champions League against Chelsea in the first leg. They have since moved forward into the final of the competition with a 3 – 1 away win at Stamford Bridge. They are now set to play Real Madrid in the final who themselves destroyed Bayern Munich 4 – 0 in Germany and 5 – 0 on aggregate.

Levante v Atletico Madrid Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Just another day in the office on Sunday afternoon on Sky Sports 4 for Atletico Madrid who will enter this game fully focused on not messing up this great run of results. They need just two more wins out of their remaining three games and will not fancy having to travel to Barcelona to earn that. With this trip to Levante and then hosting Malaga the following week, Diego Simone will see these two games as a must win if they want to achieve something that hasn’t been done since 1996.

Levante recently secured another season playing in the La Liga with an away 1 – 1 draw to Elche. They can now not be overtaken by Almeria if they manage to win all of their remaining games and of course Levante lose their own. With the new FIFA rules in place it would rule in favor of Levante with their better results against Almeria this season even though the goal difference is more than enough to secure this. Atletico Madrid also managed to earn themselves a Champions League Final fixture against local rivals Real Madrid and if they manage to win that as well as the Primera Division it will be a huge achievement for the club and their devout fans.

My predictions for this game see Atletico Madrid step ever closer to the title with a convincing win over their opponents. I know they are away from home but the form this club are in I just cannot see them losing this game come Sunday afternoon. So my first will be for a correct score of 3 – 0 to Atletico Madrid, while the next will be for Atletico Madrid to win by a 2 goal margin.
