Real Madrid vs Levante preview: Can Levante surprise the new champions?
While the home team is the clear favourite, the guests have done well recently and we expect an interesting game. So, here's a closer look at both teams:
The new champions of Spain may have done their work in La Liga for the season, but they still have three games to play before the season officially ends. More importantly, Real Madrid has to stay in form for their upcoming Champions League final against Liverpool, so they don't want to get too complacent in their remaining matches in the Spanish league.
Meanwhile, the biggest news is the return of Eden Hazard to training after struggling with a leg injury, but he remains out for the next game. In addition to Hazard, Real may also be without Marcelo, Dani Ceballos, Gareth Bale, Isco, and David Alaba, who are listed as questionable.
Real Madrid predicted lineup:
Courtois – Carvajal, Militao, Nacho, Mendy – Valverde, Casemiro, Modric – Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius
Despite their resurgence in the last couple of months and three wins in the last six games, some of which over very good teams, Levante is still in the relegation zone and still five points behind the first team outside of it. The hope is still alive with three games remaining, but the team from Valencia will need a lot of luck to avoid a move to Segunda.
When it comes to team news, Levante will be without Jorge de Frutos, Shkodran Mustafi, Roberto Soldado, and Carlos Clerc through injuries.
Levante predicted lineup:
Cardenas – Miramon, Rober, Duarte, Vezo, Son – Radoja, Pepelu, Melero – D. Gomez, Morales
