Los Blancos have collected seven points from their three league games this season to sit third in the table, while Levante have picked up three points from an available nine to occupy 13th position.
Levante opened their 2020-21 campaign with a 4-2 defeat at Valencia on September 13 before putting three points on the board two weeks later courtesy of a 3-1 success at Osasuna.
Paco Lopez's side could not build on the victory over Osasuna but can be proud of their overall performance against Sevilla on Thursday, which ended in a 1-0 win for the Europa League holders.
The Frogs finished 12th in La Liga last season, which was their highest placing since 2013-14, and it would not be a surprise to see them in a similar position at the end of this campaign.
Levante actually recorded a 1-0 victory over Madrid when the two teams last locked horns in February, with Jose Luis Morales coming up with the winner in the 79th minute of the contest.
Madrid, as mentioned, have picked up seven points from an available nine this season, which has left them in third position in the table heading into the next set of fixtures.
The reigning champions opened their title defence with a 0-0 draw at Real Sociedad but have been victorious in their last two against Real Betis and Real Valladolid.
Los Blancos will be looking for another victory on Sunday ahead of the international break, particularly considering that there is a league game with Barcelona at Camp Nou on the horizon.
The financial impact of the coronavirus impact means that Madrid have been unable to make a big-money signings this summer, and there is a lot of pressure on those at the club to perform.

Madrid have not quite hit full flow in the opening weeks of the season, but a return of seven points from three matches still represents a strong start. Los Blancos will be determined to put another victory on the board, and we fully expect the champions to triumph this weekend.
