Levante vs Real Madrid Prediction
Real Madrid are back in the groove, and have won two league games in a row. Levante were poor in both their defeats so far this season - to Valencia and Sevilla.
Real Madrid still need time to be back at the level where they want to be, in terms of performances, but they should still have enough to see off Levante.
