League Position: 9th (38 points from 30 games played)
Recent Form: W – L – L- W – L
Top La Liga Goal Scorer: Roger Marti – 11

Levante have punched above their weight this term and find themselves comfortably in 9th in the La Liga table.
Currently above the likes of Valencia, Athletic Bilbao and Celta Vigo in the table, Levante will have aspirations of finishing the season strongly.
Aitor Fernández is one of the most consistent shot-stoppers in La Liga while Oscar Duarte in front of him is a fiercely competitive central defender.
The metronomic Levante midfield is kept ticking by the talented Nemanja Radoja and Jorge de Frutos is a real creative force ahead of him.
Roger Marti has developed into one of the deadliest strikers in La Liga and he will be keen to add to his season tally of 11 here.
League Position: 4th (61 points from 30 games played)
Recent Form: W – W – D – W – W
Top La Liga Goal Scorer: Youssef En-Nesyri – 15
Top La Liga Assists: Jesús Navas – 6
Sevilla cannot be completely discarded from the La Liga title race, with all of the teams above them stuttering somewhat over the finish line.
They sit only six points behind league leaders Atletico Madrid and with Barcelona and Real Madrid in between them in the league standings, they will see these last few games as a completely free hit.
Having dug deep to overcome Celta Vigo on Monday night, confidence should be high in the Sevilla camp – with Champions League football all but assured next season too.
Bono looks to be the keeper Sevilla have been looking for in recent seasons while Jules Kounde is courting attention from some of Europe’s biggest clubs at centre-back.
Former Manchester City pair Jesus Navas and Fernando continue to perform at a consistent level for Sevilla while Ivan Rakitic is a key component in the Sevilla midfield.
Suso provides real creative flair and Youssef En-Nesyri has an impressive 15 La Liga goals and counting this season.
