Levante UD
Real Madrid CF


After our brilliant win in the 150th El Clasico the title is one step closer within our grasp. The lead has been cut down to 6 points and we need to maintain the pressure at the top of the table. This game takes place three hours before they kick-off in the Nou Camp, so we could close the gap to just three points with victory in Valencia against Levante. No doubt Barcelona will feel us breathing down their necks, and without Pichichi, let's see how they can handle the pressure.

Samuel and Guti return after serving one-match bans respectively.

A question mark remains over the tactical line-up Luxemburgo will use in this match. Owen continued his good form with a well-taken goal against Barca, and Madrid in general looked like a completely different and dangerous team with Raul operating on the left behind Owen and Ronaldo. I think we should stick to the formation we used against Barcelona because we can blow teams off the park with that attacking blend of football. It gave us plenty of speed and pace upfront in the shape of Ronaldo and Owen, with quality wing play in the form of Raul and Beckham so we can exploit that pace upfront and Zidane pulling the strings from the middle. Figo won't be happy though, perhaps he should rotate with Beckham. I think that is the most sensible option available to us at this point in time.

Stick to the same line up, we have to win this, everygame we face until the end of the season should be considered as a final and I guess the players know that now.

IF we win, we close the gap to 3 points, and whenever we play before before Barca and win, they usuaully draw or lose! They will be without Eto'o and Puyol, thats 50% of their team!

Gravesen was injured in training and he is a serious doubt for Sundays game!

We might expect to see Beckham once again in the defensive midfield position with Guti next to him..

I expect a win. I really dont think we'll fall against Levante on sunday. We can only think of winning the game coz i expect Barca to win theirs even if they dont have puyol, etoo, iniesta and albertini.

Gravesen no pasará pruebas médicas. El centrocampista ha sido examinado en la Ciudad del Fútbol por los médicos del Club, quienes han determinado que presenta un esguince en el ligamento lateral externo del tobillo derecho. El danés ya ha comenzado un tratamiento personalizado y sigue siendo duda para el partido contra el Levante.
I'm not Spanish or anything close to that, but as I understand, Gravesen won't be able to play in Levante match :(

Salgado---Helguera-----------------Samuel-------Carlos

PS. Raul and Zidane will most probably have free roles.

And yeah, Figo is again out of the line up...

Well as long as Beckham is fit he will almost always start for Real Madrid.

So you might want to stop saying this. :smileani:

Why doesn't he try with Helguera as a DM and Pavon in the defence... cmon BORJA... wtf?! The guy is even more nervous then Ruben everytime he gets to play... what happened to Javi Garcia(at least he did sth on the pitch unlike Borja)... or what about Arbeloa... has he been completely forgotten(he was brilliant against Atletico!)
