Following their shocking 2-2 draw at home to Celta Vigo on Sunday, LaLiga leaders Real Madrid will hope to bounce back to winning ways against Levante on Sunday.

A win for Los Blancos will be a massive boost ahead of Manchester City’s visit to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in the first leg of the Champions League R16 tie on Wednesday.

Real Madrid were just minutes away from another nervy win last week, only for Santi Mina to fire the visitors on level terms, late in the second half.

Zinedine Zidane’s men sit top of LaLiga table, however, a point ahead of second-placed Barcelona, who had earlier edged Getafe 2-1 at Camp Nou.

Barcelona, on the other hand, welcome struggling Eibar at Camp Nou, ahead of their first-leg R16 tie in the Champions League against Napoli at the San Paolo.

On Thursday, Barcelona acquired the services of Danish striker Martin Braithwaite from Leganes, having taken permission from RFEF due to a long list of casualties.

Moreover, with El Clasico at the Bernabeu next weekend, a slip for both Real Madrid and Barcelona could prove costly.

Also, with 14 matchdays to go, and just 11 points separating the third-placed Getafe and 11ht-placed Osasuna, fight for European football is also set to go down to the wire.

High-flyers Getafe, 3rd, and Real Sociedad, 8th, host Champions League veterans Sevilla and Valencia, respectively as the season reaches its business end.
