Real Madrid Starting XI: Navas; Danilo Pepe Varane Nacho; Casemiro Kross James; Lucas, Mayoral and Ronaldo
Levante Starting XI: Mariño, Iván López, Feddal, Medjani, Orban, Simao, Camarasa, Jefferson Lerma, Morales, Deyverson and Rossi.
It's surprising to see Casemiro starting instead of Kovacic. Zidane hasn't trusted Casemiro much since he took over as Real's manager and the Brazilian surely needed some minutes to improve his confidence after his decent start of the season under Benítez. He has the potential to be an important player in this squad given his defensive skills, but it's true that his offensive qualities don't help the team.
Mayoral will replace Karim Benzema while Lucas Vázquez will keep Isco on the bench this time. For the time being, it looks like the young Mayoral will take Benzema's minutes while the Frenchman is injured on his hamstring.
