Kick-off time: 12:00pm
Date: Saturday 18th May
Venue: Estadio Ciudad de Valencia
Atletico Madrid will be losing two of their most important figures this summer – Diego Godin will be leaving the club after he wasn’t offered a new deal, and perhaps more importantly, France’s World Cup winner Antoine Griezmann has this week announced he wants to leave the club in the summer. Atletico have one more match to play this season but they are guaranteed to finish in second place in the La Liga table behind Barcelona. They’re currently seven points ahead of local rivals Real Madrid who sit third after a terrible campaign.
Levante are down in 15th place but are not under threat from relegation as we go into the final weekend of the La Liga season. They’ve ended the season strongly too, winning three of their previous four matches and manager Paco Lopez will be hoping to build on that next season. Survival was ensured with an emphatic 4-1 win over relegation bound Girona last time out and they have been scoring plenty of goals at home, with eight coming in their last two matches at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia.
Even though this is a dead rubber game, Levante will still want to end their season on a high and continue their good run of results at home. They are unbeaten there in six matches now, drawing three and winning three and all three of their draws have been by a 2-2 scoreline. Atletico Madrid should be able to stop them scoring twice here though. Los Colchoneros drew their last dame 1-1 against Sevilla and prior to that lost 3-0 at Espanyol, so don’t go to Valencia in the best of form and we don’t know how they’ll react to the news that Griezmann wants to leave. With all of that considered, the best bet for our Levante vs Atletico Madrid predictions may well be for the game to end a draw this weekend.
