As Madrid aim to build momentum ahead of their season-defining Champions League clash with PSG, they should record a comfortable win on Saturday

After wins over Deportivo La Coruna and Valencia in the last two weeks, Real Madrid are aiming for a third successive league win when they travel to Levante.

Los Blancos have not won three consecutive matches in La Liga since October, but their opponents this weekend should offer them a good chance of extending their winning run. 

Match odds

Levante have failed to win any of their last nine league encounters and SportPesa price them at 13/1 (14.00) for what would be a morale boosting victory.

Madrid, meanwhile, are offered at 2/11 (1.22) with the draw available at 6/1 (7.00).

Team news

Squad members Dani Ceballos and Jesus Vallejo are likely to be the only two players unavailable for Zinedine Zidane.

Levante were busy in the January transfer market, bringing in seven players, and could give a debut to veteran Italian striker Giampaolo Pazzini.

Another tough night for misfiring hosts

Los Granotas have sunk down the table after a promising start to the season which saw Juan Muniz's men earn a shock 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu in September, but have failed to win since November.

In six of the nine games during their winless streak Levante have failed to score, and a lack of goals is a major problem.

Madrid have no such worries as they scored four last week against Valencia and seven the week before against Deportivo. There are signs of recovery for Zinedine Zidane's men and they should continue on Saturday.

Tips and predictions

The visitors are offered at 5/4 (2.25) to win with a -2 handicap and this could be a shrewd way of backing a Madrid win.

This bet also paid out in both matches that Levante played against Barcelona and Atletico Madrid this season, and Los Granotas could be on the receiving end of another heavy defeat from a top side.
