After starting the season with a 3-1 thriller against Celta Vigo, Real Madrid had to endure back to back draws against Valladolid and Villareal. This weekend, they will be looking forward to returning to the winning ways when they host Levante at their Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. This match will be played on Saturday 14th September 2019 starting 12:00GMT.
Real Madrid is determined to win the trophy this season. Having dropped 4 points in their last 2 matches, they can’t afford to lose more points if they have to stay in the race for the trophy. With their big-money summer signing Eden Hazard having overcome his injury, it’s their time to shine.
On the other hand, Levante started off the season in a low tempo with a 0-1 loss to Alaves but managed to overcome the loss and win their two consecutive matches against Villareal and Valladolid. If this is something to go by, then they have a better chance against the Los Blancos.
The Los Blancos have managed to make their Estadio Santiago Bernabeu a real fortress. Considering the fact that Los Levantinos are not considered good travelers, a home win should be considered. There is thus great value in putting our money for Los Blancos win the match.
