A victory will propel the Catalan giants above the other title hopefuls and onto the summit of the La Liga table.

Barcelona pay a visit to Levante for their 36th match of the La Liga campaign on Tuesday.

Not too long is left before the campaign concludes but the title race remains wide open as only two points separate the first and the third-placed teams. Atletico Madrid lead the table with 77 points. Real Madrid and Barcelona are level on points at 75, with the former sitting at second on head-to-head advantage.

The Catalan giants cannot afford to drop points anymore, although they are overwhelming favorites to walk away with all three points from Ciutat de Valencia tonight.

Levante drew 2-2 with Eibar last time out to put an end to their four-match losing run. Their last win came in early April against Eibar.

Paco Lopez’s side sit down at 13th in the league standings, having been able to collect just 39 points from 35 games.

Ronald Koeman’s men, meanwhile, boast the best away record this term, picking up 37 points from a possible 51 on their travels. They also boast the best attacking numbers in the league, having scored 80 goals – 19 more than the next-best side – so far.

Barca were held to a draw by Atletico on Saturday and will be determined to get back to winning ways tonight.
