Fit again Isco omitted for Levante clash

Real Madrid manager Santiago Solari has left Spanish international Isco out of their squad to face Levante, despite the former Malaga man's return to fitness.

Isco is yet to start a La Liga game under Solari, and the former Argentina international had indicated that the would be willing to bring in Isco, with a testing period of fixtures ahead for Real Madrid.

However Solari has now made the decision to leave Isco out for the trip to the east coast, but he has included Brazilian international Casemiro, who is one booking away from a league ban.

Jesus Vallejo comes in to replace the suspended Sergio Ramos, with full back Alvaro Odriozola also left in Madrid as Solari looks to shuffle his pack.
