Ciutat de Valencia, Spain.

Levante 1-2 Real Madrid

Jose Mourinho's men came out on top in a game that probably should have been postponed.

Torrential rain had plagued the city of Valencia since around 3 p.m. on Sunday, meaning los Granotes' pitch was in shocking condition.

With both teams quickly giving up on short passing due to the severe amount of puddles, a long slog for three points ensued.

A remarkable 40 fouls were committed and Levante picked up an astonishing six yellow cards.

Los Blancos scored from two set pieces, with Ronaldo rifling a stray ball in to take the lead in the first half, and Alvaro Morata sealing the points with a debut headed goal in the closing stages.

In between those strikes, Levante's Angel Rodriguez managed to sneak one past Casillas at his near post after a looping Obafemi Martins lay-off.
