Real Madrid fans want Antonio Conte

A poll run by Football Espana saw almost three quarters of Real Madrid fans call for Antonio Conte to become their next Coach.

Madrid slumped to their fifth game without a win on Saturday, losing 2-1 to Levante in a match that saw them go the longest without a goal in their 116-year history.

Consequently the ante has been upped on Lopetegui, who sacrificed taking Spain to the 2018 World Cup for the top job at the Santiago Bernabeu.

La Liga line-ups: Real Madrid-Levante

Lucas Vazquez, Mariano Diaz and Marco Asensio form a new-look front three for Real Madrid against Levante in this early kick-off. 

It is a far cry from the BBC trident that led Madrid to four Champions Leagues in five seasons, although Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema have only just returned from injury.

Elsewhere, Alvaro Odriozola stays on at right-back, Marcelo returns on the left and Isco partners Luka Modric and Casemiro in midfield.
