NEWS | 30/01/2021 | Javier VázquezThe team hosts the Valencia side in its first home outing since 2 January, on matchday 21 of LaLiga (4:15 pm CET).
The Whites return to action at the Di Stéfano for the first time since 2 January and they will have to maintain the high level of performance produced last week at Mendizorroza, with a complete and convincing team display. Karim Benzema bagged another brace in the encounter, just as he did on Levante’s previous visit to Real Madrid.
The French forward has been involved in 20 goals so far this season and has been named in the 20-man squad for the clash. David Bettoni spoke about the importance of getting off to a good start in the match during the virtual press conference ahead of the encounter: “The key against Levante is to start well, play with intensity and play our game”.
Paco López’s side currently lie mid table on 23 points from 19 games. Levante have managed 27 goals, with Roger and Morales (8 and 7 goals each) the danger men. On the two sides’ previous meeting this campaign Real Madrid came away with a 2-0 victory.
