Real Madrid drops more points after 2-2 draw at Levante

Xavi sympathises with Zidane over the Real Madrid manager’s struggles
"All the small teams want to go through the crises that they have", said the Levante coach Juan Ramon Lopez Muniz, whose team drew 1-1 at the Bernabeu in September. But, the manager has included both Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane in the 19-man squad for the trip to Levante, which will be a huge boost to Real Madrid and their chances to come out of the match with all three points.
"We're thinking about getting back to our best".
Zidane's team were flattered by the margin of their victory at Valencia, but probably the biggest plus was the way they dug in to ride a storm of Valencia pressure in the second half before surging clear with two late goals.
"If we only think of PSG then that is wrong".
And when many a Real Madrid fan expected Los Blancos to make move towards the likes of Mauro Icardi and Julian Weigl - as the two top January targets - Zinedine Zidane remained quiet in the market with Real Madrid becoming the only Spanish club not to make a single signing this winter.
"We know that the league is nearly impossible, but we need to finish well in the league because it builds our confidence", Madrid midfielder Casemiro said.
"If they beat [Unai] Emery [and PSG], it will be hard to stop them because they have a player in their squad who never wants to lose: Cristiano Ronaldo".
Save for injuries to squad players Dani Ceballos and Jesus Vallejo, real Madrid have a fully fit squad to choose from.
Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Karim Benzema were among those pictured refining their technique at Real Madrid's Valdebebas training base with head coach Zinedine Zidane watching on closely. "We have to make changes and I changed things".
Emery has the manpower at his disposal to do the job, but not only does he have to get his starting XI right, he also needs to keep his players' minds from straying towards Real. "No, displeased. This year for us is a complicated year because we haven't put six good results together in a row". "We will see. I will always say to you that it is not decided until the end".
"I am happy with all my players because they are all of that mentality - they give their very best each and every time that they take to the pitch".
Cristiano Ronaldo has scored four goals in the last two games, including two last weekend against Valencia.
No La Liga team has drawn more games 0-0 than Levante in La Liga this season (4).
