Sports Mole previews Monday's La Liga clash between Levante and Sevilla, including team news and predicted lineups.

Sevilla will be looking to make it back-to-back La Liga victories when they travel to Levante on Monday.

Julen Lopetegui's side recorded a 2-0 win over Real Betis on their return to action on Thursday night, while Levante came from behind to secure a late point against rivals Valencia in their first game back.

Match preview

Levante looked to be heading for a defeat against local rivals Valencia on Friday, with Spanish forward Rodrigo Moreno sending Los Che ahead in the 89th minute of the contest.

Paco Lopez's side secured a share of the spoils in the 98th minute, though, courtesy of a penalty from Gonzalo Melero, who was a second-half substitute at the Mestalla.

The draw left Levante in 12th position in the table, nine points clear of the bottom three, and it would be a surprise to see the team pulled into a relegation battle at this stage of the campaign.

Granotas have finished 15th in their last two seasons at this level, but they might well be eyeing their highest position since the 2013-14 campaign, when they claimed 10th.

Sevilla, meanwhile, recorded a 2-0 win over Betis in the Seville derby on Thursday night, with Lucas Ocampos and Fernando on the scoresheet for the top-four hopefuls.

The victory has left Lopetegui's side in third spot in the table, four points clear of fourth-placed Real Sociedad, who are in action at home to Osasuna on Sunday night.

Sevilla have actually only finished in the top four on one occasion since 2009-10, but they are in a strong position to secure a Champions League spot for the 2020-21 campaign.

Los Nervionenses are now unbeaten in their last five league matches and have won three of their last four, including victories over Getafe and Osasuna before the lockdown period.

Sevilla's next game after this is one is at home to Barcelona on June 19 and another positive result on Monday night would leave them full of confidence ahead of a clash with the champions.

Team News

Levante will once again be unable to call upon defender Ivan Lopez, while striker Roger Marti is suspended due to the red card that he picked up in the draw with Valencia last time out.

Marti's absence could open the door for Borja Mayoral to start alongside Jose Luis Morales in attack, although Sergio Leon is another option to feature in the final third.

There are not expected to be many changes from the side that started against Los Che, though, with Ruben Rochina and Enis Bardhi set to keep their spots out wide.

As for Sevilla, Nemanja Gudelj is available after serving a suspension, but Munir El Haddadi is a doubt due to the knock that he picked up in the win over Betis.

Franco Vazquez could get the nod in a forward position if Munir is unable to recover, although Suso and Youssef En-Nesyri are also options in the final third of the field.

Lopetegui has plenty of options for change further back, meanwhile, and there could be a start for experienced Argentine midfielder Ever Banega.

Levante possible starting lineup:
Fernandez; Miramon, Postigo, Vezo, Clerc; Rochina, Vukcevic, Campana, Bardhi; Morales, Mayoral

Sevilla possible starting lineup:
Vaclik; Navas, Carlos, Kounde, Reguilon; Torres, Fernando, Banega; Ocampos, De Jong, Vazquez

We say: Levante 1-2 Sevilla

Sevilla were impressive on their return to action on Thursday evening and will fancy their chances of putting another win on the board. Levante claimed a welcome point at Valencia, but Sevilla have beaten Getafe and drawn with Atletico Madrid in their last two away league matches, and we expect Lopetegui's side to secure another three points ahead of a potentially key game against Barcelona.
