Manuel Pellegrini admits that the Levante match on Saturday will be very tricky to win.

Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini has predicted that Saturday's trip to Levante will be a very difficult match to win.

Pellegrini was full of praise for Levante's well-drilled system and insists that every point is vital in the race for the Champions League positions.

"Levante are always strong at home," AS quotes Pellegrini as saying. "They have a fluent system system, defend well and have experience."

"The league is tight and positions may be decided by a point, so every one is important."

Just three points separate Malaga in fourth and Levante in ninth in La Liga.
