Real Madrid visit Levante in what will be their last game before hosting FC Barcelona in the decisive return leg of the Copa del Rey Semifinals. Levante managed to beat Los Blancos at the Bernabeu last October and will be a tough challenge for Madrid at the Estadio Ciudad de Valencia, even more so if coach Santiago Solari decides to make some rotations.
Luckily enough for Madrid, the players will be fresh after having a week off for the first time in quite a while. Still, Wednesday’s match against Barcelona will be so demanding that Solari should at least give some key players like Ramos or Benzema the chance to get some more rest ahead of El Clasico.
Real Madrid wasted a good chance to at least compete for La Liga title by losing against Girona at home last week, so they might as well decide to focus on the Copa del Rey and the Champions League from now on.
