Real Madrid's projected XI: Keylor Navas; Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo; Lucas Silva, Illarramendi, Modric; Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.

Levante's projected XI: Diego Mariño; Iván López, David Navarro, Ramis, Toño; Simao, Camarasa; Xumetra, Barral, Morales; Kalu Uche.

In their last game before the decisive clash against FC BarcelonaLos Blancos need to get a victory out of the Bernabéu against Levante UD. Keylor Navas has been reportedly training with the starters in the last few days and will likely take Casillas' spot tonight, although Real Madrid's captain will, according to Ancelotti's words, start against Barça next Sunday. Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric will probably start tonight as well, in order to get in shape as soon as possible. Kroos and Isco, who are a yellow card away from suspension, are expected to sit on the bench.

Levante's coach Lucas Alcaraz, who had his whole roster available for tonight's game, has said that his team will try to be as compact as possible in order to avoid Real Madrid's onslaughts, but that they will counterattack whenever they have the chance. Pedro Morales, David Barral and Kalu Uche are, definitely, the men our defenders and Navas will have to watch more carefully.
