La Liga Preview: Real Madrid - Levante

Jose Mourinho's side returns to domestic action against Los Granotes after brushing aside Galatasaray in the Champions League in midweek.

Real Madrid has a full squad from which to choose for Saturday's Primera Division encounter with Levante at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Boss Jose Mourinho is likely to make changes to the side to conserve energy for the mid-week Champions League trip to Istanbul to face Galatasaray, with Alvaro Arbeloa, Marcelo, Pepe and Kaka all in line for recalls.

Midfielder Valdo has recovered from a knee injury and is poised to start on the bench for Levante.

David Navarro is suspended but Sergio Ballesteros, Pedro Lopez and Nabil El Zhar all return after serving one-match bans.

  • Real Madrid has won seven of its last eight matches in all competitions.
  • The Castilian giants have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight outings in La Liga.
  • Cristiano Ronaldo (pictured, right) has scored 106 goals in 94 appearances for Madrid at the Bernabeu.
  • Levante ended a seven-match winless run in La Liga with a 1-0 home win over Sevilla.
  • Los Granotes have lost their last four away encounters against Madrid by an aggregate score of 19-4.
  • Levante's last win at the Bernabeu was a 1-0 success in February 2007.
