Betting tips for Real Madrid vs Levante 20.10.2018
Real Madrid and Levante are in action on Saturday at the Santiago Bernabéu, a challenge to count for the 9th round of La Liga. The Madrilenians are in a disappointing moment, have not scored in any of the last four competitive games, and have seen the pause for international competitions come at the right time. On the other side arrives a Levante that went up of income before the pause, and won the last two games that disputed, arriving here moralized after a record of results very negative.
Real Madrid are in 5th place with 14 points from 4 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, with 12 goals scored and 7 goals conceded. Real Madrid come here after having failed to win any of the last four competitive games, Champions League and championship, losing in three of them, still going blank in all four of these challenges, a record that had not happened for more than a decade . The Merengues then fell to the 5th position of the table, and they are 2 points of the 1º classified Sevilla, a distance easily recoverable.
However, Lopetegui begins to feel pressure on the part of the direction and needs to quickly return to this bad wave of results, since in Real Madrid there is no space for slips. The quality of the team is undoubted, but there are aspects that have not yet been agreed. The Merengues have been caught several times on foot, and although they often dominate the possession of the ball, these are harmless, there is no creativity in the last third of the field, and this has caused a drought of goals. Isco is fit again and could be one of the options of the Spanish coach, who in turn still can not count on Dani Carvajal. Gareth Bale is still not 100% recovered and remains in doubt, and may even be spared for El Clásico next match.
Santander Levante, in turn, ranks 12th with 10 points, 3 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses, with 12 goals scored and 14 goals conceded. After beating Real Betis in the first round of the championship, the Levante entered a win drought and was five consecutive days without winning, losing four of them. It was only in the last two matches of the league that the Valencia side managed to rise and had two victories, triumphing in reception at Alavés (2-1) and at Getafe (0-1).
Paco López's team, especially when acting as a visitor, is usually the type of team that offers the initiative of the game to the opponent, retreating the lines and trying to explore the space on the back of the enemy in quick transitions to the attack. Of the 14 goals that have been conceded in the league, only 3 of them have been awarded as visitors, making it clear that they are much more cautious to play in this condition. Due to a clause in the loan agreement, Borja Mayoral can not play against Real Madrid. In addition to this, Vukcevic and Coke are also out, both injured.
