Marcos Llorente ruled out of Levante clash

Real Madrid boss Santiago Solari has confirmed that midfielder Marcos Llorente will miss Sunday's trip to Levante through injury. 

The former Alaves man injured his thigh in their Copa del Rey semi final first leg against Barcelona earlier this month, and he had returned to light training, but he has been left out of the travelling party.

The only other major absentee is captain Sergio Ramos, who serves a one game ban after his red card against Girona last weekend, and the defender remains one game away from a further suspension after collecting four yellow cards in La Liga this season.

Solari also hinted in his pre-match press conference that he could hand starts to Dani Ceballos, Federico Valverde and Isco at the Ciutat dde Valencia , as he looks to rotate his squad ahead of a testing run of games.
