Levante will be playing host to Barcelona in a rare morning game in La Liga on Sunday.

According to bookmaker William Hill, Levante's only hope for a victory on Sunday will be if Barcelona sleeps in for the game, as Levante is currently listed at 17.00 to win, despite the fact that they will be playing in front of their home fans. Barcelona, which is looking strong to win another La Liga title this year, is currently listed at 1.17 to win, despite the fact that they will be playing away from home. Here are the full odds for Sunday's game:

Levante, 17.00
Draw, 7.00
Barcelona, 1.17

Barcelona is currently sitting in a tie with Atletico Madrid at the top of the La Liga standings, though Barcelona currently has two games in hand on their rivals. With a very winnable game on Sunday, Barcelona are currently the clear favourites to win the league this year.

Levante, on the other hand, currently sits in last place in the table and has a very good chance of being relegated after this season. They currently sit five points behind the 17th place team - Levante could do itself a very big favour by winning on Sunday, though that will be a Herculean task with Barcelona needing to win as well.

Barcelona has a three-headed monster of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, Jr. which is nearly impossible for opposing defences to stop. All three players are better than even money to score on Sunday, with Lionel Messi possessing the best odds at 1.67. To put this into some perspective, Deyverson of Levante has the best odds to score for his team at 3.80.

Levante has been terrible at home so far this year, managing a miserly 12 points in 11 games. Barcelona has the second best road record in La Liga, however, as they have managed 17 points in just 9 road games this season.

Barcelona is the clear favourite to win on Sunday, and even the most hearty of Levante supporters would have to agree that their side has a slim chance of winning.
