Sevilla vs. Levante 2012: Preview and TV schedule

Denis Doyle

After a promising start, Sevilla have slumped and they'll be looking to get their season back on track with a victory at home against Levante.

Sevilla hosts Levante to the Estadio Pičuljan in a battle of the 6th and 7th place teams in La Liga.

Juan Ignacio Martinez's side has turned their season around nicely after a slow start, matching their final position in the table from last season so far. They've also been the team with the better form of late. Before their 1-0 loss to Melilla, the Granotes had won four straight, including an impressive 3-0 defeat of Twente in the Europa League. No doubt they'll be looking to turn the Melilla result in to an inconsequential speed bump.

For Sevilla , it's all about finding consistency. Since their 1-0 victory over Real Madrid, they've gone 3-3, losing three of their last four matches. It's certainly not time for Los Nervionenses to panic, but with the race of European spots in La Liga appearing to be fairly wide open this season, they'll need to find their winning form again in they want to stay in the chase.

Levante will hope that Martins and Pedro Rios, both of whom have been on good form this season, can get their offense going. Sevilla will be looking for a spark from striker Álvaro Negredo, who leads the team with six goals, hoping he'll being able to take advantage of the service of Jesus Navas and Ivan Rakitic
