Levante should be a solid attacking side, especially at home. Last season, they scored 27 goals at the home stadium in 19 LaLiga rounds. On the other side, Levante should be good in defence. They allowed only seven goals in the last six matches (including friendlies).
Levante will be without Sergio Postigo, Alex Blesa, Dani Gomez, and Roberto Soldado for this game. All of them are injured.

With Karim Benzema, Eden Hazard, and Gareth Bale, Real Madrid has one of the world’s best-attacking lines. They showed against Alaves what they are capable of.
