Following Real Madrid's surprising 0-1 defeat against Real Betis last night, Barcelona take to the field tonight knowing that a win could effectively rule Jose Mourinho's side out of the title race. Yes, it is only November and there will be plenty of time for Los Blancos to fight back, but how can they overcome an eleven point deficit when the club they are chasing has dropped just two points? However, let's not get carried away as Barcelona still need to defeat Levante to extend that lead over Real Madrid to double digits.
Judging by yesterday's results, Barca will be up against it at the Ciutat de Valencia - in each of the five matches played last night, no team managed to score away from home. On the other hand, while Levante has only lost once at home this season, they have trailed at half-time in half of their six home league games. Given that Barcelona are 100% under Tito Vilanova if they take the lead in a match, this might not be the challenge we have all been expecting. Whatever the case, be sure to predict the result of tonight's match in our poll below and comment to confirm your prediction. Best of luck!
