Levante host Atletico Madrid in the early kick off on Saturday afternoon in the final game of the La Liga season.
Levante come into this clash off the back of a vital win away to Girona, which has confirmed their safety from relegation and cemented their place in La Liga for next season.
Atletico have managed to retain their second place finish which they achieved last season, recording back-to-back finishes above Real Madrid for the first time in 45 years.
Here’s a look at Satuday’s tie in more detail.

Diego Simeone’s men have the most clean sheets in La Liga this season with 20 and will be looking to add one more to the tally after conceding four goals in their last two games.
Levante are unbeaten at home in their last six games, so Griezmann and his teammates will have a tough job on their hands to put an end the home side’s fine form.
Here’s how they’ve performed in their last five fixtures.
|Girona 1-2 Levante (12/5)||Atl. Madrid 1-1 Sevilla (12/5)|
|Levante 4-1 Vallecano (4/5)||Espanyol 3-0 Atl. Madrid (4/5)|
|Barcelona 1-0 Levante (27/4)||Atl. Madrid 1-0 Valladolid (27/4)|
|Levante 4-0 Betis (24/4)||Atl. Madrid 3-2 Valencia (24/4)|
|Levante 2-2 Espanyol (21/4)||Eibar 0-1 Atl. Madrid (20/4)|
With nothing at stake for both sides it should be a relaxed encounter with both sets of fans saying goodbye to club legends.
The home side are flying high after securing safety last weekend, so a confident attacking performance should be expected.
Prediction: Levante 1-1 Atletico Madrid
