Real Madrid VS Levante – Match Preview
Real Madrid has drawn twice in a row, staying undefeated in a derby match against Atletico, and grabbing the misfortunes of Villarreal and Barcelona to stay in their second place.
After a short international break, in which they once more lost Luka Modric because of his injury in Croatia’s match against Bulgaria, Rafa Benitez will hope to lead his team back to winning ways in a match against Levante. Modric joins Benzema, James Rodriguez and Carvajal on Real Madrid’s injury list.
The guests, in the interim, having at long last gotten their first triumph of the season in a match against Villarreal and demonstrating their supporters they can at present trust in something in this season, confront hard away trek in which they will likely hope to concentrate on defensive work, what could demonstrate an issue for a side that they conceded twelve goals in their initial seven games. Ivan Lopez and Trujillo will certainly miss the experience for the guests while Lucas Alcaraz will at present trust his side can be helped by David Navarro and Vera, who are far-fetched.

In any case, it ought to be noticed that Levante figured out how to beat monsters from capital twice, once even at the turf of Santiago Bernabeu, and that well-known triumph came in 2007. The last meeting went to Real Madrid’s support, with a 2-0 triumph in which two strikes from Bale, although the second one could be credited to Ronaldo.

Levante has won one and only of their last 10 visits to Santiago Bernabeu, 0-1 in 2007 with a Salva Ballesta goal.
