Team news

Gareth Bale has been left out of Real Madrid’s squad to face Levante and there is still no place for Rodrygo either.

Eden Hazard is included again after making his long-awaited comeback in last weekend’s 2-2 draw at home to Celta and the Belgian is one of only four forwards in the 19-man list.

Zidane could decide to rest left-back Ferland Mendy, with the French defender just one booking away from a ban which would see him suspended for next weekend’s Clasico at home to Barcelona.

Levante possible XI: Fernandez; Miramon, Vezo, Postigo, Tono; Melero, Vukcevic, Campana, Bardhi; Mayoral, Marti

Real Madrid possible XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Kroos, Casemiro, Modric; Vazquez, Benzema, Hazard
