Real Madrid 1-2 Levante – La Liga 18/19 Week 9

Real Madrid suffered their 4th loss in 5 games and set an unwanted record with a defeat at the hands of Levante at the Bernabeu

Lopetegui’s side were stung twice inside 13 minutes. The visitors attacked from the first whistle and took the lead with only 6 minutes on the clock. Morales kept his eyes on Postigo’s long ball and beat Varane to it, before taking the ball around Courtois and slotted in.

Varane was at fault again, when he handled inside the area, leading to a penalty which Marti home to leave the home side crestfallen. Real produced several great chances, with the woodwork and great saves from Olazabal coming to the rescue for the visitors.

The final line of defence was finally breached in the 72nd minute when Marcelo fired a rocket past the goalkeeper. Real tried their utmost to find an equaliser, but Levante’s impressive defence held out for a memorable win.
