Real Madrid poor form this season continues after falling to a third defeat in their La Liga season and fourth defeat in five consecutive matches, they have not won any game since the 22nd of September, when they won 1-0 against Espanyol. They are currently 5th in the La Liga table. These results have increased the pressure on the Blancos coach – Julen Lopetegui.

An early goal through José Luis Morales right footed shot from the center of the box gave the visitors a lead. The second goal came in 7 minutes later from Roger Martí‘s penalty when VAR overruled the referee’s decision and awarded Levante a penalty. Bale and Benzema were introduced in the second half but it was Marcelo Vieira‘s late goal that gave the Real Madrid a glimmer of hope. However, Lavente’s solid defence prevented another goal.
