Deportivo vs Levante

Deportivo La Coruna will hope their fans rally behind them in their moment of need when they welcome Levante.

The Blanquiazules are third from bottom, out of form and having to deal with a severe financial crisis which has threatened the club's very existence.

Hometown hero Alex Bergantinos is exuding calm however.

“We are working with tranquillity. Many teams have been through these situations, and we are unlikely to fall apart.”

Levante go into this lunchtime kick-off the back of some fairly hefty criticism for their physical approach in last Sunday's 2-1 loss to Real Madrid, but given that they are 6th and that was their only defeat in the last five matches, they couldn't care less.

“Yes they commit fouls and are strong,” opined Bergantinos. “ But I do not think they are a dirty team.”

Kick off: Sunday November 18, 11.00 (BST)
