Levante are also struggling with a lot of problems this season. They have only won two since the start of the season and are struggling in the relegation race. Levante are currently 17th in the table with only a red light thanks to the sub-index and if they do not improve the situation, they will have difficulties in the future.
Barcelona’s defence has not been so bad this season, having also scored 20 goals in the first 10 rounds. However, their defence is having too much trouble without any world-class centre-backs in the context of Pique’s injury.
perhaps the only player who can meet Barcelona’s defensive requirements is Ter Stegen. Without the German goalkeeper’s excellence, Barca’s goals would not have stopped at 11. It can be said that Stegen’s role for Barca at this time is just as important as that of captain Lionel Messi.
