Preview: The recently anointed Spanish league champions resume their title procession with a midweek visit from Levante, whose desire for points is certainly the more greater as they attempt to claw back a five point deficit on La Liga safety. A repeat of last season’s 2-1 victory in this fixture wouldn’t go amiss.

Real Madrid – La Liga champs seeking swift return to winning ways?

Images from their celebrations at landing a record-extending 35th Spanish league title have already become iconic. But they were brought immediately down to earth with last week’s Madrid derby loss, succumbing 1-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano to Atletico Madrid as their winning streak in La Liga was abruptly halted at five. With a European final around the corner, though, regaining momentum is crucial.

The title procession resumes on Thursday then, with the visit of second-from-bottom Levante. However, anyone anticipating an easy run out and three points could be in for a rude awakening. Los Blancos invariably toil against Granotes, winning just three of the last nine head-to-heads (D3 L3), losing 2-1 in Madrid last season, and being held 3-3 back in August when the sides clashed first time around in 2021-22.

Key Stat: Four of Real Madrid’s last five La Liga wins as the home side were ‘to nil’. Although, across the season, only 50% (6/12) of their league victories as a host were accompanied by a clean sheet.


Levante or Draw (Double Chance)



Levante – Late survival bid gathering momentum?

Every great escape is a gradual stepping process. Levante took another small but potentially significant step towards prolonging their stay in the Spanish top tier with the recent victory over Real Sociedad. It continued an impressive turnaround in fortunes from the Valencia-based outfit, who have now taken maximum points from three of their past six matches (D1 L2) to give themselves a fighting chances of staying up.

Unfortunately, despite productivity having shot up in recent weeks, the club still has to find another five points from the nine still available – whilst hoping Cadiz and Granada falter – to stave off relegation. It essence, then, they need a repeat of last season’s 2-1 away win over a Real Madrid side recently crowned champions. But having won narrowly at Atletico Madrid earlier in the year, hope springs eternal.

Key Stat: Levante have scored in each of their past 13 games in La Liga, despite facing Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Real Sociedad, Sevilla and Villarreal in this period. A goal on Thursday will see them net for the seventh consecutive away league game.

Real Madrid Vs Levante Betting Advice

Only the ever pragmatic Sevilla under Julen Lopetegui have allowed fewer goals in La Liga this term than Real Madrid. However, the latter, recently crowned champions, are without a clean sheet in six of the last nine fixtures. So whether standards have dropped knowing their advantage atop the standings was unassailable, or fatigue owing to an accumulation of so many big games, standards are on the decline defensively.


Real Madrid Vs Levante – Key Facts:

  • Across their nine previous La Liga meetings, Levante avoided losing 66% of the time (W3 D3 L3). This includes both this season’s clash in Valencia (3-3) and last season’s corresponding encounter in Madrid, which they won 2-1 as a significant underdog.
  • Real Madrid saw their five-game winning run in the league snapped with a 1-0 loss away at Atletico Madrid last time. They’ve now conceded in six of the last nine La Liga matches.
  • Levante’s revival contined last weekend with a 2-1 success at home to Real Sociedad. Their third win in six (D1 L2) having netted for the 13th successive league game.


Across Real Madrid’s last six La Liga home games, only two teams – Barcelona and Real Sociedad – had any attacking joy. However, Espanyol caused them problems in the most recent Santiago Bernabeu encounter, generating chances worth a total of 2.4 xGF without scoring. Levante are in excellent scoring form meanwhile, netting in 13 consecutive league games which includes each of their last six as the away side.
