The champions Real Madrid suffered an unexpected blow at home to Levante in a match of La Liga, allowing a loss of 1:2. This gives a big advantage to Atletico Madrid, which in the middle of the season is two games from soccer livescore less and if he wins them, has a lead of 13 points at the top. Now Barcelona has a chance to catch up with `Los Blancos`.
This is Alfredo Di Stefano`s third defeat for Real in the league this season and fourth in all tournaments. The key to the failure was the expulsion of Eder Militao in the 9th minute. Four minutes later, Marco Asensio put the hosts ahead, but in the 32nd minute, the guest captain Jose Luis Morales, known as El Comandante, equalized. In the 64th minute the goalkeeper of Sofia Thibaut Courtois saved a penalty from
Roger, but in the 78th minute the striker of Levante retaliated with a winning goal for 1:2. Even today, Real coach Zinedine Zidane was not on the bench because he has a coronavirus. Instead, the team was led by his assistant, David Betoni. Sergio Ramos, Daniel Carvajal and Nacho Fernandez missed the match due to health problems. Alvaro Odriosola, who had not started for four months, got a chance from the first minute. One Hazard came out in the seventh consecutive match, but failed to finish the match.
Levante bet on Roger and Jose Luis Morales, who have already scored a total of 17 goals.
In the first minutes, Odriosola made a blunder, which almost led Levante to the lead. In an effort to guard the ball, the defender withdrew earlier than necessary and Morales managed to strike, but Thibaut Courtois saved. In the 6th Benzema was brought out for the last in the defense of the guests, but the goalkeeper Aitor shortened the corner and parried.
In the 9th minute, the hosts were left with 10 people on the field after a red card from Militao. A long pass brought Sergio Leon behind the defense and he was stumbled around the arc in front of Real`s penalty area. Initially, the referee showed a yellow card to the Brazilian, but after a signal from VAR, he reviewed the situation and changed his decision, expelling the defender from the game.
Casemiro immediately took a position in the center of defense.
Four minutes later, however, Real took the lead in the result. Toni Kroos ran into a corridor to Asensio, who overtook his pursuers and finished with his right foot.
In the situation before the counterattack, there was a debatable moment in the home team`s penalty area, as Ferlan Mendy and Gonzalo Melero collided. The `frogs` insisted on a penalty, because according to them, the French defender of Real committed a violation. However, the referees did not think so and accordingly counted Asensio`s goal. Levante`s team was looking for a goal with a numerical advantage and in the 25th Courtois twice intervened after blows from Roger Marty, and the guests again insisted on a penalty kick. Asensio was one step away from a second goal two minutes later when he found himself alone against the goalkeeper, but lost control and fell to the ground. Still, Levante`s efforts paid off in the 32nd minute. Then the numerical superiority spoke for itself, after Morales was uncovered in the penalty area and from the air `stuffed` Courtois for 1:1.
