Real Madrid have not won any game in their last 4 fixtures in all competitions. Their next rivals are 11th place Levante who have already shown they can win against any of the La Liga sides. Real last won on 22nd September, almost one month ago. They are currently at the 4th spot behind Sevilla, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. Team coach Julen Lopetegui is already feeling the heat at the club. The fact that Madrid have only scored once in their last four matches is perhaps even more worrying, and Lopetegui’s side has the small matter of El Clasico away to Barcelona to think about next weekend. First, they need a win at their home ground.
