Thirteen goals in six games, yes thats one players contribution so far to Real Madrid's season. Cristiano Ronaldo has scored thirteen goals in six games, that is beyond ridiculous and on a level all on his won. Real Madrid have kickstarted their season after losing a couple of their first three. With Rodriguez, Bale, Ronaldo and Benzema its scary to think how much talent Madrid have going forward. There are question marks about the back four bu Ancelotti's side have been so good up front that the defensive inadequacies have not really been noticed when Ronaldo plays. So how would it be possible to top anything other than a comprehensive Real Madrid win on Saturday afternoon?
Well it just wouldnt be possible, I'm taking Real Madrid on the handicap here. I dont like taking handicaps above 1 when teams are away from home but such has Real Madrid's form been that I find it hard to see Levante stopping Ronaldo and Bale. Levante will look to ex Liverpool midfielder Sissoko and Diop to try to put themselves about in midfield and cut off the possession and space but with Ronaldo one side and Bale the other it may just be too much for a Levante side that have the joint worst defensive record in the League.
Take Real Madrid -2 on the handicap and follow me on twitter@antonpippo.
