Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a thrilling 3-0 win over Real Madrid in “El Clasico”, Barcelona will be looking to cement top position in the La Liga standings when they host Levante at their Camp Nou. The Catalan giants are on the right track to regain the domestic trophy, but they can’t afford any complacency in the remainder of the season. It is well known that Barca are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that they are going to extend their winning run in the national championship to four games. Leo Messi found the net in the 3-0 triumph over Zinedine Zidane’s troops and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Levante are desperate to secure the La Liga survival, but they should not be looking for points in matches against the title-chasing teams. Taking everything into account, David faces Goliath at Camp Nou and the visitors are likely to return to Valencia empty-handed.
Highlighted Player (Lionel Messi):
Lionel Messi is regarded as one of the best players in the history of football. He was born on 24 June, 1987 in Rosario and he began his football career at Newell’s Old Boys. At age 10 he was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency, but having realised his potential at a young age, Barcelona decided to pay for his treatment. Messi joined Barca in 2001 and he has been playing for the Camp Nou outfit ever since. The Argentine magician has won eight La Liga trophies with Barca and he helped the Catalan giants lift no less than four Champions League titles (2005/2006, 2008/2009, 2010/2011, 2014/2015). In the 2011/2012 La Liga campaign Messi scored 50 goals for Barca, while netting 14 goals in the 2011/2012 Champions League campaign. The five-time Golden Ball award winner has established himself as Barcelona’s all-time top scorer, but he has yet to win a trophy with Argentina national team at major tournaments. Leo Messi, though, has won Olympic Gold Medal (2008) and FIFA World Youth Championship (2005), with la Albiceleste.
