During his pre-match conference, Levante coach Juan Ignacio Martinez spoke well about both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, while discussing about his plans to defeat Real Madrid.

“I can’t vote, but I think that they’re two outstanding players, two amazing players. Who would I prefer at Levante? We’ll take them both on loan”, he said jokingly while claiming that he cannot decide between Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for the Ballon d’Or.

When asked about the match between Levante and Real Madrid, he said that they had to forget last year’s 1-0 league win over Real Madrid.

He said: “They are different games and now Madrid are much more grounded. It was the first time we beat them at home in about 100 years of our history.

“There were a couple of controversial moments, but Mourinho congratulated us and praised us.

“Madrid isn’t going to make it easy for us. They don’t depend heavily on any players because they have such depth in their squad. It’s a game between a team with one of the biggest budgets in the league and the one with the smallest. We’ll make up for that with our home support and tremendous enthusiasm”, he said.
