Starting XI: Real Madrid v Levante

Real Madrid play host to Levante this evening, as they hope to cut Barcelona’s lead at the top of the table to just one point ahead of their el clasico showdown next weekend.

How Many Goals Will Messi Score In El Clasico?

Carlo Ancelotti’s men have not won a match since their encounter with Elche on 22 February and Carlo Ancelotti will be hoping that his men will go out onto the pitch with a point to prove. Levante, on the other hand, are fresh off of a 2-1 victory over Eibar and are the in-form team.

Historically, however, Levante are the underdogs by a long way. Real Madrid have won all six of the last six matches between the two, scoring 22 goals in comparison to Levante’s six.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored a brace in his side’s loss to Schalke, will be hoping to score at least twice tonight, after Lionel Messi took the lead in this season’s European golden shoe race with his brace against Eibar.

In team news, Real Madrid will be welcoming both Luka Modric and Sergio Ramos back to their team, while James Rodriguez remains the only absence in their squad. Meanwhile, Pedro Lopez is out through injury for Levante.

While Levante have plenty of reason to be hope for an upset today, they haven’t picked up a win on the road since September.

Here’s how they line up:

Real Madrid: Navas; Carvajal, Ramos, Pepe, Marcelo; Modric, Isco, Lucas Silva; Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema

Levante: Marino, Lopez, Navarro, Ramis, Tono, Camarasa, Simao.M, Morales, Barral, Xumetra, Uche
