Real Madrid team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Levante

Sports Mole rounds up Real Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's La Liga fixture with Levante.

Real Madrid make the trip to Levante having had their lead at the top of the La Liga standings reduced to just one point.

Zinedine Zidane's side had appeared on course to edge out Celta Vigo at the Bernabeu on Sunday, only for the visitors to net a late equaliser.

With this fixture taking place after Barcelona's home clash with Eibar, Los Blancos could find themselves back in second spot before kickoff at Estadi Ciutat de Valencia.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Real's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday evening's encounter.

Marco Asensio

Possible return date: Unknown

Asensio remains on the sidelines with the serious knee injury that he picked up during Madrid's preparations for the 2019-20 campaign. While the Spaniard is making progress, do not expect to see the playmaker until April at the earliest.

James Rodriguez

Rodriguez has missed the last two games with a hip problem, which he suffered after having just recovered a knee injury. However, the Colombia international is expected to be back in contention at the weekend.

Mariano Diaz

Like Rodriguez, Mariano has missed out on the last two squads through injury. However, the forward should have shaken off a knock in time to be available for Saturday's fixture.


Madrid have no players suspended for this contest.
