How Real Madrid could line up against Levante

Sports Mole looks at how Real Madrid could line up in Saturday's La Liga clash with Levante.

Real Madrid will continue their pursuit of La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid with a home match against Levante on Saturday afternoon.

Zinedine Zidane's side returned to winning ways last weekend courtesy of a 4-1 success away at Alaves, which made it nine games unbeaten in Spain's top flight.

Madrid are still only second in the table, though, and trail leaders Atletico by seven points, while Diego Simeone's team also have a game in hand over their rivals.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Los Blancos could line up this weekend.

Out: Rodrygo Goes (hamstring), Federico Valverde (muscle), Nacho (coronavirus)

Madrid will again be without the services of Rodrygo Goes and Federico Valverde through injury this weekend, while Nacho is still absent, having tested positive for coronavirus.

Lucas Vazquez has also emerged as a doubt, having been unable to train with the team on Wednesday, but Dani Carvajal is thought to have overcome a knock, meaning that there could be a straight swap at right-back.

Sergio Ramos is still battling to overcome a slight knee issue, meanwhile, and the club captain is unlikely to be risked for this match, which could see Eder Militao keep his spot alongside Raphael Varane at the back.

Zidane is not expected to disturb the front three that impressed against Alaves, with Marco Asensio set to again join Eden Hazard and Karim Benzema in the final third of the field.

Valverde's absence means that there are unlikely to be changes in midfield, meanwhile, with Luka Modric - thought to be on the verge of signing a new contract - operating alongside Casemiro and Toni Kroos.
