Real Madrid vs Levante is a great match to watch for the viewers. Real Madrid looking rusty in this season under Zidane. Zinedine Zidane’s men have endured a difficult start to the New Year so far, suffering elimination from the Supercopa de Espana to eventual winners Athletic Bilbao and an early exit from the Copa del Rey to third-tier Alcoyano, as well as a draw to relegation-threatened Osasuna in La Liga. Real should cruise. Keep an eye on Mariano, who should get minutes up top, especially after Luka Jovic’s return to Eintracht Frankfurt.
The reigning champions comprehensively thrashed Alaves last time out, but must now continue that form against Levante if they are to mount a genuine title defence and pile the pressure on rivals Atleti, who lead the charge by seven points, and with a game in hand.

It has been a testing month for Zidane, whose position looked untenable following consecutive eliminations from domestic cups, including that humiliating defeat to 10-man Alcoyano. However, they remain in second, albeit quite a distance from leaders Atleti, and recently completed a 4-1 win over Alaves.
Levante meanwhile has had a pretty nondescript season. Paco Lopez’s men are just five points from the relegation zone but have only suffered two defeats in their last 14 La Liga games, including five successive draws between late October and November. The Frogs are currently unbeaten in three and will be itching to avenge the 2-0 loss suffered at the hands of the champions in October.
Levante: This will not be an easy game for the visitors by any stretch of the imagination. They will need to suppress the midfield dominance of Zidane’s world-class trident (Modric-Casemiro-Kroos) if they are to get a foothold in the game and stand a chance. In Mickael Malsa, Lopez has a dynamic and enterprising midfield enforcer capable of breaking up play and disrupting Real’s rhythm
