Real Madrid will be looking to return to winning ways in LaLiga Santander when they welcome Levante to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Thursday evening.
Los Blancos suffered a 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid at the weekend, having secured the LaLiga Santander title one week earlier against Espanyol, whilst Levante boosted their hopes of avoiding relegation with a 2-1 win over Real Sociedad.
Real Madrid have welcome Eden Hazard back in first-team training following his spell on the sidelines due to a leg operation, but he is unavailable for selection here.
Marcelo, Dani Ceballos, Isco, Gareth Bale and David Alaba were all unavailable against Atletico and are all doubts for this fixture.
