Levante will hope to pile the pressure on Julen Lopetegui and Real Madrid by taking at least a point from their upcoming fixture, however amidst reports of tension in the Spanish capital the former Porto coach has made clear he feels supported by those in power at the club. We will see from training, must wait [on Bale] to see how it goes, and make our decision for tomorrow.

'Gareth's been very responsible about his injury, he hasn't played with the worldwide team when he could have tried to, it's good to see he has that responsibility and we have a good chance to get him fit'.

"We are focused only on the game tomorrow", he said.

The Real coach said he had nearly all his squad fit with the recovery of the injured Isco, Karim Benzema, Marcelo and Gareth Bale, without indicating if any would play against Levante. "We know that this season there are questions for all teams".

"I understood what you were asking", Lopetegui said.

Lopetegui was calmer when asked about Bale's injury situation - with the Wales worldwide having joined up with his national squad last week but returned to the Bernabeu without playing a game due to an as yet not officially confirmed muscle complaint. "So he has a chance to recover and come back tomorrow". "I have full confidence in my squad, all the players". The Germany global played a massive role as Real Madrid lifted three successive Champions League titles, but has looked a little rusty this season.

"There is a lot of the season left, and I'm sure that we'll be strong at the end of the campaign".

Lopetegui was sacked just two days before Spain's opening game in Russian Federation as he agreed a deal with Real Madrid without their permission. "Three important points that could lift is to the top of the table".
