FCB - Levante at the Camp Nou

Levante will be at the Camp Nou on Saturday at 20.00 and are bulging with confidence after getting back to their winning ways and standing fourth in the league, just five behind FC Barcelona with 26 points.

The side coached by Juan Ignacio Martínez are looking to avoid away defeat to Barça for the first time after six failed attempts.

Six of the best for Barça

The first time Levante came to the Camp Nou was way back in 1963/64, when Barcelona were being managed by César Rodríguez and won 6-2. The home side also won resoundingly a year later, 4-2.

It would be another 40 years before they were back. Frank Rijkaard was the manager for all three of their next visits, which they lost in 2005 (2-1), 2007 (1-0) and 2008 (5-1).

Levante were also beaten at the Camp Nou last season, the first meeting of the two sides in what is the Valencians' third spell in the top flight. Against Pep Guardiola's all-conquering side they were narrowly beaten 2-1.
