Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Following three consecutive wins over the likes of Celta Vigo, Villarreal and Deportivo La Coruna, Sevilla suffered an embarrassing 5-0 loss to Real Madrid at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in their last league match. Los Sevillanos, though, are still in the race for a place in the Champions League and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play in Friday’s football match against Levante. Eduardo Berizzo’s men are a real force to be reckoned with at home and it has to be noted that they are eyeing their seventh consecutive win at their Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Levante failed to impress in a 2-1 home loss to Athletic Club at the weekend and we do not believe there is a big value in betting on the underdogs. Taking everything into account, we predict the visitors will return home empty-handed from the trip to Andalusia.
Highlighted Player (Nolito):
Widely known as Nolito, Miguel Agudo Duran is a Spanish forward born on 15 October 1986 in Sanlucar de Barrameda, who has had an unconventional path to stardom. The highly rated footballer did not go through Barcelona’s famous La Masia youth academy, but he rather joined the B side in 2008 and went on to show a great deal of potential. Nolito also made a couple of performances for the senior side, but ultimately left for Benfica in an attempt to secure regular playing time. That proved an excellent decision as the winger produced some scintillating showings at Estadio da Luz, and following a loan spell with Granada, he returned to La Liga to sign for Celta Vigo. During his time at Balaidos, Nolito developed into one of league’s leading footballers, usually playing on the left wing and wreaking havoc after cutting inside. The experienced footballer scored almost 40 league goals in first 100 appearances for the Sky Blues, while also breaking into the Spain national team, and despite making his La Furia Roja debut at the age of 28, he quickly became an important player for the side.
