Levante Real Madrid match preview

Zinedine Zidane has decided to give the youngsters a chance to start and he will line up Casemiro, Lucas Vazquez and Borja Mayoral in the starting eleven to face Levante.

With Sergio Ramos and Daniel Carvajal suspended, and Marcelo injured, Danilo and Nacho Fernandez will be full-backs. Meanwhile, Pepe will return from injury to pair in the centre of defence alongside Raphael Varane.

Luka Modric will also miss the game through injury and he will be replaced by Casemiro. James Rodriguez will play Isco’s role, as Zidane has decided to rest the Spaniard. Toni Kroos and Lucas Vazquez will complete the midfield line.

Youngster Borja Mayoral will get a first-team start for the first time in his career, pairing with Cristiano Ronaldo in the forward line. The 18-year-old played some good minutes last weekend against Atletico Madrid earning Zidane’s trust.

This will be Real Madrid‘s starting eleven: Navas; Danilo, Pepe, Varane, Nacho Fernandez; Vazquez, Kroos, Casemiro, James Rodriguez; Mayoral, Ronaldo.

Meanwhile, Levante will display their usual starting eleven, with the exception of Feddal, who will replace suspended David Navarro.

This will be Levante’s starting eleven: Marino; Ivan Lopez, Feddal, Medjani, Orban; Lerma, Simao Mate, Camarasa, Morales; Deyverson, Rossi.
