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.

Unsurprisingly, Madrid are heavy favourites for this encounter at odds of 11/20 with a Levante victory priced at 9/2 and the draw available at 17/5.

These fixtures do not tend to produce a lot of goals with 18 going in across the six previous meetings, so under 2.5 goals at 9/4 appears to be a solid bet with under 3.5 at 10/11.

A ‘double chance’ on Levante to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 11/8 while a Madrid win/draw outcome is at 1/7.

If you fancy the home side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 5/4 while Madrid to win both halves is at 3/1.

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.
