Real Madrid vs Levante
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Saturday, 14 September 2019
Kick-off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabéu (Madrid).
Los Blancos have not got off to the start that they were hoping for, to say the least. Although they are unbeaten in the new campaign, the squad have managed to acquire just five from a maximum of nine points that were up for grabs.
The hosts were held to a 2-2 draw against Villarreal in their last clash on the road, prior to which they were forced to share the spoils with Valladolid at home with a 1-1 scoreline.
Despite getting off on the wrong foot Levante have turned things around and are currently sporting an impressive two-match winning streak. The last matchup for the visitors saw them pull off a comfortable 2-0 win over Valladolid at home thanks to two late goals from Leon and Morales.
However, it needs saying that the only defeat for the visitors so far have come in one of their outings and so, Levante will have to look sharp as the Madrid are a force to reckon with on home soil.

Real Madrid vs Levante Prediction
Zizou’s men are still a work in progress in all honesty and have not been able to put in a match-winning worth performance since their opener. The home team have picked up just two points from their last two games in a running and have been hit hard by injury woes to key talismans, including new summer recruit Eden Hazard.
Nevertheless, it is worth mentioning that Real have been consistent in getting their names on the scoresheet in each of their last three games, and have as of now added six goals to their tally. Furthermore, the hosts have been opening the scoring in each of those clashes.
Considering that the hosts have also been breaking the deadlock in three of their last five head to head meetings, you can certainly count on Madrid to draw first blood in this one.
Additionally, only two of the last six goals for Los Blancos have come in the first half. Taking into account that all four of Levante’s goals so far have also come in the latter forty-five minutes of the game, expect both the teams to be a lot more clinical in the second half and to score a total of two goals or more post the restart.
