Bookmakers offer a range of exciting betting markets, aimed at ramping up your interest, and you can have your say pre-match or in-play. Here are our top Real Madrid v Levante betting tips & predictions.
A Closer Look
Real Madrid is desperate for a return to glory and has been spending freely during the summer transfer window as they look to buy their way back into the La Liga title race and the top step of European football. Things haven’t gone exactly to plan for Zinedine Zidane in the early exchanges, however, with Blancos winning one and drawing two of their first three.
The home side goes into this match sitting fifth in the table. The team is already four points off derby rivals and league leaders Atletico Madrid, who has made a perfect start, winning three of three. A home win will not only drive them back into the top four, but it will also ensure Real Madrid apply serious pressure to their main title rivals at this early stage. Real Madrid is 3/10 favourites for the points, best price at Unibet. That’s worth taking.
Levante Doing Alright
Levante has performed better than expected in the opening three weeks and make the trip to this match with six points to their name. They lost the first game of the season but were able to bounce back and win each of the next two, lifting them to fourth in the charts. Not many sides win away to Real Madrid, but nothing is impossible in this league, especially so early in the season as the home side look to settle in. An away win has been marked at 15/2 by 888sport, the draw 19/4 with Unibet.
