Real Madrid face Levante at the Santiago Bernabéu on Saturday, Sept. 9. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
Real Madrid currently sit in fifth place in La Liga after two matches. In their opening contest, they cruised past Deportiva de La Coruña 3-0, with goals from Gareth Bale, Casemiro and Toni Kroos. Madrid faced a tougher side in Valencia their next match and drew 2-2. Marco Asensio rescued a point at home with his second goal of the match. Facing a newly-promoted side in Levante, Zinedine Zidane’s side will be expecting a much better result. Madrid will likely dominate possession and get back on track after the disappointing home draw. But after a two week international break, there might be some rust to shake of.
Levante are directly behind Madrid in La Liga, which is a nice early surprise for the newly promoted side. They stunned last season’s fifth place finishers Villarreal at home in their opening match. An 88th minute penalty kick from Jose Luis Morales along with a superb defensive effort was enough to see them through. They then drew Deportivo 2-2, and another late penalty helped them gain another point. Juan Muñiz’s side will face their biggest test of the young season against Real Madrid, and their luck will likely run out against the giant.
