FT: Levante 2-3 Real Madrid
An amazing, amazing finish. 2-1 down in the last minute of normal time, Real turn it around thanks to Morata and—who else?—Cristiano Ronaldo. Papering over the cracks perhaps, but a much-needed win for Ancelotti and his men.
Thanks for joining me!
90'+4—GOAL! WHAT A COMEBACK—IT'S CRISTIANO RONALDO! Sorry for the caps, but that was amazing. Modric finds Ronaldo, whose deflected shot from well out on the right creeps in off the far post! Levante 2-3 Real Madrid.
90'+3—Great save! Jese rescues a lost cause and feeds to Modric, who finds Marcelo—and the Brazilian's shot is just parried away!
90'+2—Awful overhit cross from the right wastes a good Real opening. They might just have time for one more opportunity.
90'—Four minutes of injury time. Still 11 behind the ball from Levante. Can one of Real's stars produce something?
89'—GOAL! Levante 2-2 Real Madrid! 11 behind the ball from Levante now, but Morata finds enough space to score a fine equaliser. Now can they grab a winner?!?!
87'—Lightning doesn't strike twice, as Real cannot respond immediately. Di Maria's cross is inviting for Ronaldo, but Navas jumps in between to claim it.
85'—GOAL! A stunner for Levante! The home side break and Diego Lopez gets into a mess, as Ramos is forced to hold off El Zhar just six yards out. The former Liverpool man seems to have wasted his opening, but wriggles free and then curls a shot past Lopez and inside the near post! Levante 2-1 Real Madrid.
82'—A break in play while Diop gets treatment for an injury. He appeared to take a boot to the face after a clumsy challenge on Khedira.
80'—Ronaldo's effort crashes straight into the wall.
79'—Lopez booked for a foul on Morata. Free-kick to Real just about 30 yards out...
77'—Well into the final 15 minutes. Can Real get a much needed winner?
70'—Real should be ahead! The substitutes combine, but possibly the wrong way round. Morata drags the ball back across goal for Marcelo, who snatches at the chance and lashes over. Prior to that Navas makes a smart save from Benzema.
69'—And now the change for Real. Isco is replaced by the young Alvaro Morata.
68'—Substitution for Levante: Xumetra is replaced by Nabil El Zhar, to a deserved round of applause.
66'—Shots fired! They're both from range, one from each side. Xumetra slices wildly over, while Benzema's is somewhat undercooked and goes straight to the goalkeeper.
65'—That Levante opener seems to have focused some minds. Good work from Benzema gives Di Maria an opening, but he takes a couple of mediocre touches and can only slice a shot wide.
63'—Another great chance for Real! Ronaldo wins another corner, but Ramos' header this time hits Benzema as it heads goalbound!
60'—GOAL! Equaliser for Real Madrid! Ronaldo wins a corner, and the delivery is powered in at the far post by Sergio Ramos! Levante 1-1 Real Madrid.
58'—Marcelo comes on for Coentrao, and then Isco sees a good effort blocked.
56'—GOAL! And it goes for Levante! A brilliant counter-attack sees the ball chipped to Diawara in the box, and he makes no mistake with a first-time half-volley to slip the ball into the corner! Levante 1-0 Real Madrid.
51'—Ronaldo wriggles free in the box but his effort is scuffed slightly and hits the outside of the near post on the way out. Navas looked like he had it covered.
48'—Levante get a corner but it is cleared easily.
45'—We're back underway.
You can see why Levante have not lost in the league since the opening day. Tough to break down, but Madrid have not exactly made great waves. Ancelotti needs a good think about things at half-time.
