Isco replaces Luka Modric for Real Madrid move to Levante
Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is making just one change to his starting XI for tonight’s La Liga trip to Levante.
The Italian coach started his return to Spanish football with a 4-1 victory at Alaves on the opening weekend of the 2021/22 campaign and he kept adjustments to a minimum.
Croatian star Luka Modric did not travel with the team to Estadio Ciutat de València after sustaining a muscle injury in training earlier this week.

Ancelotti has chosen to call on Spain star Isco to bolster his midfielder, with the other ten remaining the same since their victory in the Basque Country last time around.
Levante fought for a 1-1 draw in their season-long curtain-raiser against Cadiz and boss Paco Lopez makes three changes for Los Blancos’ visit.
