Will Borja Mayoral start the game given Benzema's absence? Who will replace Luka Modric? And Carvajal? Those are the questions that need an answer. Real Madrid visit Levante's Ciudad de Valencia trying to bounce back from their disappointing 0-1 loss in the Madrid Derby last Saturday, although Los Blancos have nothing to fight for in this Liga BBVA anymore other than securing a spot in next year's Champions League.
It will likely be hard for Madrid to keep playing with intensity week in and week out in the domestic competition, but Zidane must find the right balance and motivate his squad as there are plenty of matches before the end of the season. La Liga will be useful to get the team ready for the Champions League game and also make some rotations to keep the players fresh.
Luka Modric, Karim Benzema, Carvajal and Ramos will be out of the squad alongside Bale and Marcelo.
Location: Estadio Ciudad de Valencia, Valencia, España.
Kick-off time: 21:00 PM CET, 15:00 PM Eastern.
