Another Copa del Rey matchup is on the books and this time Levante and Athletic Bilbao will take the field. Both teams ended the first leg with a 1-1 draw and will look to pick up an early lead in this match.
The Copa del Rey match will air only on ESPN+.
Levante has had some tough competition this season and currently sits in ninth place in the La Liga standings. The Valencia-based team has had some lethal days and will want to put on a strong performance on Thursday. It has won just six matches against Athletic Bilbao and looks to win another.
Chelsea: Star defender Thiago Silva returned to training on Tuesday afternoon, recovering from the thigh injury he picked up against Tottenham. Time will tell if he gets the start, but he could be a huge boost at the back for the Blues, who have been playing well defensively. Chelsea have not conceded a goal in 247 minutes, conceding just twice in their last nine matches.
Liverpool: The Reds just earned a 2-0 win over Sheffield United, but it still wasn’t all that impressive. All eyes will be on whether star goalkeeper Alisson plays, and he is expected to. The Brazilian, unfortunately, lost his father last week after he drowned while swimming. Alisson was given Sunday off on compassionate grounds and is expected to be available, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said on Tuesday. Fabinho is also expected to be available after a muscle injury kept him out four matches. Diogo Jota was also expected to be in the team for the first time since Dec. 9 after his knee injury, but he has an illness and has been ruled out.
It will look have to do so without Jose Campana and Gonzalo Melero, who are ruled out as they recover from injuries. Levante may also face Athletic Bilbao without Nemanja Radoja who has fitness concerns and might not play a part in Thursday’s match.
Athletic Bilbao has a strong record against Levante and has won 17 matches of the 27 total matches played between the two sides. It had a tepid start to the season but has found its footing under manager, Marcelino García Toral. The Basque side is now in 10th place in the league table and won the Spanish Super Cup earlier this year and will be looking to pick up another trophy.
It will not have two players available for the game with Peru Nolaskoain, who is currently injured, as well as, Inigo Martinez. The defender picked up a late red card in La Liga over the weekend and will be out serving his suspension this week.
Despite winning the Premier League last season, today’s hosts Liverpool seemed to be in freefall in recent weeks.
Prior to a 2-0 win at Premier League strugglers Sheffield United in their last outing, The Reds had been on a losing streak of four games in the league including a devastating loss at Anfield to local rivals Everton.
Though form has improved for visitors Chelsea who are unbeaten in their last five Premier League games, The Pensioners have had their own struggles this season and sit just 1 point above Liverpool.
New Blues manager Thomas Tuchel has steadied the ship since taking over from ousted fan-favorite Frank Lampard, including a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford at the weekend, but Klopp’s Liverpool will be another tough test.
