Here is the latest form and team news from Real Madrid and Levante:
Real Madrid Form and Team News
Los Blancos have already won La Liga, which makes their remaining league games of less importance as they now turn their attention to the Champions League final in Paris. They fell to a 1-0 loss against city rivals Atlético Madrid and will need to return to winning ways to stay crisp and motivated. Carlo Ancelotti has already expressed the importance of that game, claiming a win for his side will make this season the best in his coaching career.
Real lost to Levante the last time they visited by two goals to one, and they will want to avoid a repeat of that fixture in front of their dearest fans. They have not won this fixture since October 2020, losing one and drawing another in 2021. They have only lost once in the league all season, 4-0 to Barcelona, which further underlines their strength on home soil.
Real have a few players injured or unfit to play. David Alaba, Marcelo, Isco, and Dani Ceballos join Gareth Bale and Eden Hazard on the sidelines, and they may not feature against Levante.
Levante Form and Team News
Relegation is never a pleasant circumstance, but Levante find themselves in dire straits after a poor La Liga outing. They occupy the 19th spot and are five points behind Granada, who are in the 17th position. Having managed only six wins all season, with four of those coming at home, it isn’t difficult to see where Levante have underperformed.
They have only two wins on the road this season, with four draws and eleven losses, with Espanyol, Real Mallorca, and Alaves the only teams with a worse away record. They will draw some positives from their recent showings against Real Madrid, winning once and recording a 3-3 draw in their most recent meeting. They certainly need all the help they can get against a solid Real Madrid side and will look to Jose Luis Morales for inspiration.
Shkodran Mustafi, Enric Franquesa, Carlos Clerc, Jorge de Frutos, and Roberto Soldado are down with injuries and may not be on the trip to Real Madrid.
