Live Football – Levante vs Real Madrid – Live Streaming | Premier League – Round 4 Live | Sky Sports Live | LEV vs REM Live Today Match Online
A 79th-minute strike gave Levante a shock 1-0 victory over Real Madrid in last season’s corresponding fixture, and whilst a repeat of that seems unlikely, an emerging trend over the hosts’ first three games of this La Liga (LL) campaign will give them hope. Like that H2H result, all three fixtures this term have seen a drawn first half and the decisive goal netted in or after the 75th minute, albeit only once in Levante’s favour (W1, L2).
With their own stadium under renovation, Levante play their home opener in Villarreal. They possess an even record in their last six LL ‘home’ games played outside of Valencia (W2, D2, L2). Four of those games produced under 2.5 goals, so it’s clear they tend to keep things tight when playing in an adopted home stadium.
A second-half strike gave Real Madrid a 1-0 win over Valladolid, continuing their unbeaten start to the new league season (W2, D1). Two of their games have now seen a goalless first half, however upfront, the four goals Madrid have scored so far is their worst return from their opening three LL games since 2010/11.
Their last away fixture also saw the visitors concede two goals before HT in LL action for the first time since October 2018. Still, they netted the opener within 15 minutes in that match, something they’ve now done in three of their last four LL road trips.
Players to watch: José Morales scored the winner in the last H2H, and has netted three goals for Levante already this season – two before HT.
Vinícius Júnior came on to score Madrid’s winner last time out – his last four LL goals were all match openers.
Hot stat: Eleven of the last 15 LL H2Hs produced goals in both halves, ten saw both teams score, and just two produced a goalless first half.
