La Liga champions Real Madrid
La Liga champions Real Madrid will aim to record a second consecutive win in the league when they host Levante at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano on Thursday. They are 7 points behind the leaders Atletico Madrid, so there’s no room for mistakes right now. Let’s preview it.
For Real Madrid this season is tainted by inconsistency. Los Blancos made mistakes in 7 of their 19 matches so far, which is the reason why they are now seven points behind Atletico. Los Colchoneros even have a game in hand.
After their dissapointing defeat in the Copa del Rey Real Madrid took a breath of fresh air with a strong performance in the league. In the previous round the champions faced Deportivo Alaves away from home and took the points with a stunning 4-1 win. Karim Benzema shined with a brace for the visitors while Casemiro and Eden Hazard also scored for the reigning champion. Now the fans hope that this goal is going to give Hazard the confidence he needs to perform better.
Levante are 12th in the table with 23 points and they are having an okay season so far. What’s more impressive is that they lost just one of their last five fixtures in the league – against Villarreal away from home. Most likely Levante won’t be worried about survival, but only if they keep winning points on a regular basis.
In their last match Paco Lopez’ team made its 8th draw for the season. Levante faced Real Valladolid at the Cuidad de Valencia and the game ended 2-2. The goals which Dani Gomez and Roger Marti scored were not enough for the hosts.
These are the preview details we can offer you for the La Liga game between Real Madrid and Levante in the capital. The champions surely need to win this one, but they are facing a tough team.
