Both teams have lost once in their first four matches and won the other three, setting up an interesting battle in Madrid.

Madrid boast of in-form players like forward Esther González and midfielder Caroline Weir whilst Levante have their hopes in forwards Mayra Ramirez, Alba Redondo and Nataša Andanova.
The teams have met seven times with Levante winning four and losing three giving the possibility that the match can go either way.
Defending champions, Barcelona will be visiting Real Betis for a clash at the Polideportivo Felipe del Valle on Saturday evening looking to consolidate their position at the top of the log standings.
The visitors are yet to drop points this season and hope to collect another set of maximum points.
The Blaugrana will be buoyed by their 9-0 victory over Benfica in the UEFA Women’s Champions League (UWCL) match on Wednesday night and will be hoping to replicate the same form when they battle it out with Betis.
Forwards Asisat Oshoala and Geyse are all in good scoring form and will be complemented by fellow forward Mariona Caldentey who is arguably Barcelona’s best player so far this season whilst Betis forwards have been struggling.
The teams have met 11 times with Barcelona winning 10 and drawing one in the process.
Alavés host equally struggling Athletic Club at the Ciudad Deportiva José Luis Compañón on Saturday afternoon.

Real Sociedad will be looking for their second win of the season when they clash against Sporting Huelva on Sunday at the Campo del CD Lamiya.

The teams have met 11 times at this venue with Sociedad winning seven and drawing the other four which gives them the upper hand going into this fixture.
UDG Tenerife will be looking to turn around their fortunes when they host Villarreal at Estadio La Palmera on Sunday afternoon.
The hosts would want to quickly forget about the heart-breaking last-minute equaliser by Sociedad last weekend.
Having played a game less than their opponents they are fully aware that their performance so far is not convincing after managing only four points out of a possible nine whilst Villarreal have lost three of their first four matches and managed just a single victory.
Tenerife defender Patri Gavira was given a red card and will be missing on Sunday.
