Liga form: Poor
Uche: With Nigeria
Cup form: Good
Levante: Done for
The less said about the last two Liga games, the better, but without Uche, there may be more repeats to come.
Still, Levante - exhausted from their pseudo-heroic loss to Real Madrid at the weekend (sounds familiar, doesn't it?) will hopefully get a good riding tonight to get the spirits up.
Osky will be in goal as Pato is both being rested and hopefully receiving extra coaching of some description after a series of recent errors. Signorino may make a cameo, as might Tena. The midfield's fairly regular-looking, and up front is the usual motley crew. Maybe Kepa can get his confidence back, I don't know.
In any case, expect a four-figure crowd and little worth shouting about. Excelsior!
