Competition: La Liga

Market: Over 2.5 goals

Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport

Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the La Liga table, Atletico Madrid will welcome Levante to the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Starting with the hosts, while Atletico Madrid might have managed to pick up a much-needed victory over the weekend, fans around the capital would have once again been worried by their side’s display. Eventually claiming what was a stunning 4-3 win against Getafe at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, Diego Simeone’s men have really failed to keep up their title-winning success this season. Still sat 15 points adrift of their crosstown rivals, the defending champions now simply find themselves in a battle to clinch a top-four finish this time around. Marking their return from January’s brief winter break with a 4-2 defeat against Barcelona, Atletico have gained a reputation for their recent issues at the back. It should be highlighted that Wednesday’s hosts have conceded at least a pair of goals in their last six straight outings.

As for the visitors, eventually hit with a 4-2 defeat at home against Real Betis over the weekend, it is fair to say that Levante find themselves at the heart of a Spanish nightmare. Sat rock-bottom of the La Liga table and now 12 points adrift of safety, Head Coach Alessio Lisci is watching his side freefall down to the Segunda this season. Losing seven of their last eight matchups across all formats and crashing out of the Copa del Rey away at lower league Alcoyano back in December, Levante will know that they face a huge task on Wednesday evening. However, playing out a 2-2 draw and grabbing a point when they welcomed Atletico to the Ciutat de València back in October, it should be noted that they are unbeaten in their last three straight meetings against the defending champions.

Bet: Over 2.5 goals at Atletico Madrid vs Levante 1/1 for Wednesday’s La Liga showdown @ 888sport
