8* Sevilla FC (1:00 ET): With Champions League qualification all but wrapped up, Sevilla can now turn its eye to an even bigger prize. The hottest side in all of La Liga is just six points out of first place and three behind second entering Wednesday’s clash with Levante. Unbeaten in their last seven across all competitions, a sixth win in their last seven would match table leaders Atletico Madrid for the most wins in all of La Liga this season. It could also potentially draw Las Palanganas level with Real Madrid for second by day’s end.
Last time out, Sevilla came from behind to defeat 5th place Real Sociedad 2-1. After conceding in the opening five minutes, they tied the game and took the lead within a three minute span. It was the second straight come from behind victory as they defeated Celta Vigo 4-3 two weeks ago. But what’s impressive here is that three of their past five victories have come against sides in the top seven of the La Liga table.
Though still in the top half of the table themselves, Levante has been really inconsistent down the stretch. They’ve dropped four of six and last week’s 5-1 loss to Villarreal was the worst result of the bunch. Goal scoring has been an issue with only three total in those six matches. One would have to go all the way back to late February, a span of nine matches, to find the last time Levante scored more than one goal. The reverse fixture against Sevilla back in October was a 1-0 loss. 8* Sevilla FC
