After Barcelona’s 8-0 thrashing of Osasuna last night, Real Madrid will look to consolidate their early lead in La Liga with a solid display and three points against Levante this weekend.
Jose Mourinho will take his team to Ciutat de València and will look to take further advantage of Barcelona’s slip up last week against Real Sociedad by picking up maximum points against a Levante side that have yet to win a game in their two contests so far this season.

Madrid have scored a startling ten goals already this season and Christiano Ronaldo has already bagged himself four, more than the entire Levante team have managed in their games so far – and while the Portuguese international has the best goals per minute ratio in La Liga this season, he has never scored against their opponents on Sunday.
The former Manchester United midfielder and Barca’s Lionel Messi appeared to be in a league of their own last season as they duked it out for the right to be crowned leading goal scorer in La Liga, but neither man could breach the Levante defence last time round – a testament to their defensive strength.
Real’s fantastic goal scoring start to the season bodes well for the Madrid faithful- the last two times they have scored ten in their opening two games of the season they have gone on to win the league, something that Barcelona will no doubt have their eye on.
Levante have a poor record against Real Madrid and will be fighting against the odds to replicate their 0-0 draw against Mourinho’s side of last season – the first time Los Blancos have ever failed to win at Lavante in the league.
The away side have only ever lost to the hosts on one previous occasion, picking up ten wins and one draw, all of which spells trouble for boss Juan Ignacio Martínez.
