Barcelona are back in action with another do-or-die La Liga fixture this week as they take on Levante at the Ciutat de Valencia on Tuesday. The Catalan giants have been fairly inconsistent over the course of the season and cannot afford to drop points in this fixture.
Levante are in 14th place in the La Liga standings at the moment and have suffered an extraordinary slump after a strong start to the season. The Valencia-based side has lost four of its last five games and has to make a statement this week.
Barcelona, on the other hand, remain in contention for the La Liga title but will need Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid to drop points over the next two weeks. The Blaugrana also have issues of their own to address and will need to be at their best to come away from this game with a victory and three crucial points.
