Preview: Levante vs. Barcelona

Sports Mole previews Barcelona's trip to Estadi Ciutat de Valencia to play Levante.

Levante host league leaders Barcelona on Sunday evening eager to register their first win of the campaign.

Manager Jose Luis Mendilibar has witnessed his side record just one point in their opening three La Liga fixtures while Les Granotes are yet to find the back of the net this season.

Defender David Navarro is sidelined through injury while captain Juanfran remains out with a knee injury.

Barcelona have enjoyed the perfect start under new coach Luis Enrique, winning all four games in all competitions without conceding a goal.

After they saw off Athletic Bilbao last weekend, the Catalan giants edged past APOEL in the Champions League in midweek ahead of their trip to Ciutat de Valencia.

Enrique is expected to be without defenders Thomas Vermaelen and Jeremy Mathieu, while Andres Iniesta is likely to miss the game after picking up a knock on Wednesday night.
