Real Madrid On The Path To Stay On Top
Levante vs Real Madrid – Real Madrid’s 2-2 draw at home to RC Celta on matchday 24 ended a run of five-straight LaLiga victories.
Despite the setback, they remain top of the table, now just one point clear of second placed FC Barcelona.
This weekend, Real travel to face Levante UD at the Estadi Ciutat de València.
Sitting in 13th place, the home side have lost four of their last five LaLiga matches, leaving them in danger of being dragged into a relegation battle.
Levante have only beaten Real Madrid once in their last 14 league meetings, with their last home victory over them coming back in 2011.
Los Granotas tend to find the back of the net when they face the division’s biggest sides and in recent weeks they have scored away to Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, narrowly losing 2-1 on both occasions.
Madrid may boast the division’s best defensive record but they have conceded in their last three games in all competitions, and could well concede once more this weekend.
