Storylines

Barcelona: Barca has won six of its last seven games and has already played Levante in league play. Back on Dec. 16, Barca destroyed Levante 5-0 with Lionel Messi scoring a hat trick. Levante actually had 20 shots in that game with nine on frame but could not find a goal. 

Levante: The Valencia-based club's defense has been awful. In the last four games, the defense has conceded 13 times. Facing Messi and company, they will have to be found and double team the key attackers to have any chance. 

Barcelona vs. Levante prediction

Barca scores early and often, putting the tie all but away before the second leg is even played. 

Pick: Barcelona (-325)
