Barcelona went into the brief winter break with a nine-point lead at the top of LaLiga and can pick up where they left off by beating Levante at Camp Nou.

The Catalan giants have scored 33 goals in their last eight encounters with this weekend’s opponents.

Taking that average into account, we like 23/4 for a 4-0 home win in our Barcelona vs Levante betting predictions.

A Look At FC Barcelona’s Betting Odds

Barcelona will have enjoyed Christmas basking in the glory of their 3-0 triumph at Real Madrid, which completed a hat-trick of LaLiga wins by an aggregate score of 9-0.

Ernesto Valverde’s side are unbeaten in 17 games in this competition, with 14 victories, and could be about to get even stronger for the second half of the campaign.

Record signing Ousmane Dembele returned from injury with a cameo role in Thursday’s Copa del Rey draw at Celta Vigo, while reports suggest Philippe Coutinho is on his way from Liverpool.

Another former Anfield hero has been in fine form of late, with Luis Suarez netting seven times in six LaLiga matches.

Looking at the Barcelona vs Levante odds, the Uruguay striker appeals at 9/4 to open the scoring for a fourth straight fixture.

A Look At Levante’s Betting Odds

Levante ran away with the second division title last term and are battling hard to survive in the top flight.

They are down in 16th place but have lost just once in seven away games, grinding out five draws on the road.

Three of their last four league matches have ended in goalless stalemates, while there was a 2-1 win at Espanyol in the cup on Thursday.

However, we can’t forget a 5-0 thrashing by Atletico Madrid towards the end of November and this could be another occasion when they are in too deep.

The visitors may hold firm for a while, but Barca are expected to prove a class apart once finding their rhythm.

Punters can get 91/100 for the hosts to score more goals in the second half and that completes our Barcelona vs Levante betting tips.
