A young list for Real.

Zinedine Zidane trusts his young players with Ramos, Carvajal, Modric, Marcelo, Benzema and Bale out of the team with injuries.

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Casilla and Yáñez.
Defenders: Varane, Pepe, Nacho, Danilo and Álvaro Tejero.
Midfielders: Kroos, James, Casemiro, Kovacic, Isco, Odegaard and Marcos Llorente.
Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Lucas Vázquez, Jesé and Borja Mayoral.

Pepe has made his return to the team's list and this happened right when Real Madrid needed him since Ramos will miss the game with a suspension, just like Carvajal.

Mayoral could have a chance to start the match upfront unless Zidane decides to give either Vázquez or Jesé the spot. Real Madrid probably need a pure striker if Cristiano Ronaldo is going to stay on the left wing, so Mayoral might be the better option.

Either way, Real Madrid still have the talent to beat Levante, who are fighting to avoid relegation. It will be a very important match for them, so expect a tough meeting.
