Real Madrid starting XI: Casilla, Carvajal, Nacho, Ramos, Theo, Llorente, Kroos, Marcelo, Vazquez, Asensio, Benzema.
Levante starting XI (To Be Confirmed): Raul, Ivan, Postigo, Chema, Toño, Campaña, Lerma, Jason, Bardhi, Alegria, Ivi.
This is a must-win game for Real after the 2-2 draw against Valencia. The fans at the Santiago Bernabeu will surely want to see some improvements from his players, especially from Bale and Karim Benzema, whose performances cost the team the win.
Levante are expected to play defensive-minded football and then try to score off set pieces and counterattacks as they’ve been doing over the last few years. Levante have started the season in good form with a win against Villarreal and a draw against Deportivo. They just spent one season in the Spanish Segunda Division and will be looking forward to gaining some momentum in order to avoid relegation this season.
