Zinedine Zidane’s team must get three points on Saturday to keep the title race with Atletico Madrid alive. Check out our Real Madrid vs Levante Preview.
Real Madrid Recent Form & Team News
Though set to enter February significantly adrift of leaders and local rivals Atletico, Real Madrid are currently unbeaten in nine LaLiga matches (W7, D2), winning both halves in four of the last six victories within that sequence. Home form has made a rich contribution there, with the Galacticos winning each of the last 20 LL home games to see them score first.
Without a draw in any of their home league games this term (W6, L2), the Galacticos have won each of their last four LL home games, consistently doing so via a two-goal margin, and winning the first half 1-0 on three occasions. They also averaged 1.0 goals per match beyond the hour mark across that quartet of victories.
Player to watch: After rounding off the scoring vs Celta Vigo, Marco Asensio has seen each of his last six LL home goals come during clean sheet wins (average margin: 2.33).
Hot stat: Real have kept a first-half clean sheet in each of their last 16 home league wins.
Zinedine Zidane cannot count on Dani Carvajal (muscle), Lucas, and Nacho (illness). Sergio Ramos (knee), Rodrygo (thigh), and Federico Valverde (muscle) are also out.
Levante Recent Form & Team News
Mid-table Levante are in respectable LaLiga form this calendar year (W1, D2, L1), but an onslaught surely awaits them. A pragmatic approach to games such as this has contributed towards a draw rate of 53.33% in league action since the end of the October international break (W4, D8, L3).
Interestingly, six of the eight draws within that above sequence saw the first and last match goals separated by less than 30 playing minutes. A draw for Levante would be a very positive result, albeit one extending their existing winless away run in league action (D4, L4), within which all four defeats saw the decisive goal arrive in the second half.
Player to watch: Roger Martí equalised in Levante’s last league game (D 2-2), and each of his last nine LL strikes have come during matches producing over 2.5 goals and/or seeing both teams score.
Paco Lopez will be without Jose Campana (thigh), Cheick Doukoure (Achilles tendon), Nikola Vukcevic (back), and Jorge de Frutos (muscle).
