Levante vs. Real Madrid Predictions and Preview
Levante won convincingly 4-1 at Celta Vigo last time out but had previously won just once in six La Liga outings and twice in 11.
Real Madrid had been beginning to harbour hopes of a La Liga title push having won each of their last five matches before falling to a home defeat to Girona last time out.
Those victories have included wins over Real Betis, Sevilla and Espanyol and most notably of all, a 3-1 win at Atletico Madrid, but have now once again fallen behind their city rivals into third.
One to watch for Levante: Jose Luis Morales netted for Levante in their win in Madrid earlier in the season and has eight league goals to his name this season, including two at Celta Vigo last time out. He is at 29/10 to score anytime here.
One to watch for Real Madrid: Karim Benzema already has 19 goals to his name this season including 10 in La Liga, and he is at 10/11 to score in this fixture.
Long shot: Levante have failed to score in five of their last seven matches and will look to sit deep in this game, while Madrid were held here last season. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 32/1.
