Commentary

That's all for today, goodbye!
That loss ends a run of nine unbeaten in the league for Madrid and they stay second, seven points behind rivals Atletico. They'll be hoping to bounce back against Huesca next time out. Levante move up to ninth in the table, extending their unbeaten run to seven. Their attention now turns to their Copa del Rey quarter-final against Villarreal.
Levante come from behind to beat 10-man Real Madrid 2-1. The hosts were a man down from the ninth minute when Militao's yellow card was upgraded to a straight red by VAR for denying a goal-scoring opportunity. Asensio put them ahead after a quick break but they were pegged back by Morales' strike. In the second half, Roger saw a penalty saved by Courtois before the forward volleyed his side ahead following a corner.
90' + 5' FULL-TIME: REAL MADRID 1-2 LEVANTE.
90' + 3' Madrid break quickly on the counter and Mariano is played in on the edge of the box. He steps away from Postigo before hitting the shot but he sends his effort just wide of the near post.
90' + 1' It's Bardhi that steps up to take the free-kick for Levante and he curls his shot down the middle. It's straight at the wall though and it's Varane that heads it away for Madrid.
Casemiro
Yellow Card
90' Casemiro is shown a yellow card for the challenge on Rochina and Levante have a free-kick just outside the box.
89' Clerc easily steps away from Arribas on the left and squares it to Radoja on the edge of the box. He lays it off to Rochina and Casemiro brings him down before he can set himself for a shot.
87' Madrid are seeing more of the ball again at the moment, but they just can't find a way through midfield. Casemiro tries to pick out Arribas with a throughball, but Duarte steps across him and comes away with it.
85' Vezo almost plays his side into trouble as his short pass into Radoja is short and he's being closed down by Vinicius. The defender reacts quickly though and manages to clear his line before Vinicius can intercept it.
Rúben Vezo
Roger Martí
83' Levante are making a change as well and it's Vezo that's coming on for Roger.
M. Díaz
K. Benzema
82' Benzema also makes way, with Mariano on in his place.
Sergio Arribas
Asensio
82' Double change for Madrid as they look to get back into this game. Asension is taken off, with Arribas on for him.
80' Levante are happy to just keep the ball in their own half at the moment. Madrid aren't closing them down as quickly as before and the visitors aren't in any rush to move upfield.
E. Bardhi
Assist
78' The corner was taken short to Bardhi and then he played a one-two with Clerc to open up the space to drill his cross into the box.
Roger Martí
Goal
78' LEVANTE LEAD! None of the Madrid defenders were picking up Roger from the corner and he has time to control Bardhi's cross, turn and hit the shot on the volley. Courtois sees it late and it nestles into the back of the net. 2-1 Levante! 
Dani Gómez
Morales
76' Another change for Levante now and it's the goal scorer, Morales, that's being taken off, with Gomez on for him.
74' There's a half-hearted shout for a penalty from Odriozola after he goes to ground in the box under a challenge from Melero. There was nothing in it though and the referee points for a corner.
Melero
Yellow Card
72' Melero pushes into Mendy to stop his run down the right and earns himself a yellow card.
70' Mendy loses the ball to Melero and he drills a low cross into Bardhi on the edge of the box. He dribbles past Casemiro before being blocked off by Varane and Courtois is quickly off his line to make the clearance.
68' Levante's passing is letting them down in the final third at the moment as Morales tries to push forward down the left again. He's looking for Melero at the near post, but he overhits it and Madrid clear their lines.
66' Bardhi plays a good one-two with Morales as he cuts into the box from the left to create more space. The substitute squares it to Roger in the middle, but he can't control it and the offside flag goes up against him.
Roger Martí
Penalty Miss
64' It was a good strike by Roger, but the penalty was too low which made it easier for Courtois to get to.
T. Courtois
Penalty Save
64' IT'S SAVED! Roger steps up to take the penalty for Levante and he goes to Courtois' left and tries to lift it over the keeper, but he gets a strong hand to it to push it away. He kept one foot on the line when the penalty was struck and it'll stand! Still 1-1!
62' PENALTY TO LEVANTE! Vinicius' first involvement since coming off the bench was a clumsy challenge on Clerc and the referee originally pointed for a free-kick right on the edge of the box on the left wing. VAR had a look at the incident and the decision has been changed to a penalty as the tackle was on the line.
Rochina
M. Malsa
60' Malsa is also making way, with Rochina replacing him.
E. Bardhi
Sergio León
60' There's a double change for Levante as well and Leon is coming off, with Bardhi on for him.
Vinícius Júnior
E. Hazard
60' First change for Madrid now and it's Hazard that's making way for Vinicius.
58' It's patient play from Madrid at the moment as they play out from the back and try to get in behind Levante. Modric makes a good run through the middle before laying it off to Odriozola, but his cross is cleared by Postigo.
56' Kroos has provided three assists in his last two games for Madrid in all competitions, as many as he'd registered in his previous 42 combined.
54' Asensio lay the ball off to Benzema on the left of the box and he sets himself to shoot, but it's a poor effort from him. He ends up squaring it back across the goal and Duarte clears it.
52' Levante are on the attack again and Clerc plays a good throughball into Roger on the left. He makes a driving run down the wing, but can't get away from Odriozola to get his cross into the box.
M. Malsa
Yellow Card
50' Malsa completely misses the ball and takes out Modric to earn the first yellow card of the game.
48' Madrid don't deal with the corner into the box and Radoja volleys it back into the middle from the far post. Leon heads it on, but can't direct it on target and his second attempt is blocked by Kroos.
46' Levante get us back underway for the second half! 
Lopez will be pleased with how his side responded to going a goal down as they've had the better opportunities since. He'll expect them to take advantage of their extra player after the break and pick up where they left off. Madrid started brightly but struggled to get forward as the half went on, so they'll want to see an improvement in the second half.
It's 1-1 at the break between Madrid and Levante. The hosts have been playing with 10 men since the ninth minute after a VAR check upgraded Militao's yellow to a straight red when he denied Leon a goalscoring opportunity. Just five minutes later, Madrid took the lead through Asensio after a quick break. Levante got back into it through Morales though when he hit Miramon's cross past Courtois and into the back of the net.
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: REAL MADRID 1-1 LEVANTE.
45' + 1' Varane is receiving treatment after accidentally being caught on the back of the head by Roger while he was on the ground. He's quickly back to his feet though and he'll be able to carry on.
44' Levante's corner is played to Duarte at the far post and he heads the ball back across goal to Radoja in the middle. He hits the shot on the volley, but Casemiro is there to block it from close range.
42' Benzema starts the move for Madrid on the right wing before he drifts into the box to get on the end of Modric's cross. He's under pressure from Duarte though and the defender gets a touch on it to take it off the Frenchman.
40' It's a great run from Odriozola down the right and the Levante defenders can't get close to him. It's a poor cross into the box at the end of it though and an easy clearance for Fernandez.
38' Morales is still being given a lot of space down the left and he touches it onto Leon, who's making the overlapping run. He cuts inside to get into the box, but Courtois is quickly off his line to sweep the ball away from him.
36' GOOD SAVE! Melero's throughball is weighted perfectly for Roger, who gets ahead of Varane in the middle and hits the shot first time. Courtois rushes off his line and spreads himself to smother the effort.
34' Levante win the ball back quickly from the restart and they're on the attack again. Melero drops back to open up the space for Miramon, but he overruns the ball and ends up giving away a free-kick after catching Mendy.
Miramón
Assist
32' It's a great cross from Miramon on the right that catches out the Madrid defenders and lands perfectly for Morales to hit.
Morales
Goal
32' LEVANTE EQUALISE! Morales is in space on the left of the box and Miramon's cross bounces just in front of him before he hits the shot first time. He sends it back across goal and Courtois can't stop it from hitting the back of the net. 1-1! 
31' Levante are still finding a lot of space down Madrid's right and Morales pushes forward once again. He's looking for Leon at the far post, but there's not enough on the cross and Courtois intercepts it.
29' Morales makes a driving run down the left and does well to get away from Mendy. He squares it to Roger in the middle, but he can't turn away from Varane to get a shot away.
27' CHANCE! Odriozola's looping pass into the box is brought down brilliantly by Asensio, who turns but then steps on the ball as he goes to take the shot. Fernandez is quickly off his line and he manages to clear the danger.
25' SAVE! Roger cuts into the box from the right and squares his cross in from the byline, but it's pushed away by Courtois. The forward latches onto the loose ball and tries to lift a shot over the keeper this time, but he gets a strong hand to it.
23' Melero has space to run into down the right and he curls a good cross into the far post. Roger rises highest to get on the end of it but doesn't make enough contact with the ball and it bounces wide of the target.
21' Madrid are still seeing a lot of the ball in Levante's half, but they're struggling to get into the final third at the moment. Benzema dribbles past Miramon, but his cross is blocked by Postigo ahead of Asensio.
19' Morales has a lot of space down the left and he whips a dangerous ball into the six-yard box. It's over Roger and Varane gets just enough on it to take it past the far post and away from Leon.
17' It's patient play from Levante to get in behind Madrid and into the final third, but Leon is forced wide when he's picked out by Melero. He tries to swing a cross into the box, but Mendy gets over quickly to block it.
15' Madrid break on the counter-attack again and Hazard has switched out to the right to get on the ball. He has a lot of support up with him in the box, but he can't find a way past Clerc and he's forced to go backwards.
T. Kroos
Assist
13' Mendy cleared the ball to Kroos and he played in Asensio with a great pass with the outside of his boot to set up the goal.
Asensio
Goal
13' ASENSIO SCORES! It's a great run through Levante's half from Asensio after they break on the counter and the defenders can't get back to him. He hits his shot across goal from the edge of the box and finds the far bottom corner. 1-0 Madrid! 
12' There are some complaints from the Madrid players as they think they should have a free-kick after Modric was brought down just outside the box. There's not much in it though and the referee waves the claims away.
10' Levante won a free-kick just on the edge of the area for Militao's challenge and it's Leon that takes it. He curls his shot over the wall towards the near bottom corner, but Courtois gets down to save it.
Éder Militão
Red Card
9' MADRID DOWN TO 10 MEN! After a VAR review, the referee goes back over to Militao and the decision for a yellow has been overturned and he's shown a straight red instead for denying a goal-scoring opportunity.
8' Leon has a clear run at goal and Militao races back to try and get into position and help the other defenders. He clips the back of Leon's heels and he's shown a yellow card, but VAR is having a look at this for a possible red.
6' Hazard makes a driving run to the edge of the box from his own half before squaring the ball to Benzema on the left of the area. He hits the shot first time, but it's blocked by Postigo.
4' Benzema drops deep and then makes a great run through Levante's half, taking on three of their players to get into space on the right. He cuts it back from the byline, but a deflection helps it into Fernandez's gloves.
2' Roger wins the ball back in midfield and he touches it onto Radoja, who tries to lift a pass over the top to pick out Leon's run. There's not enough on the pass though, and Varane cuts it out.
1' Benzema gets the game underway for Madrid! 
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away.
At home, Madrid have only won one of their last three league games against Levante (D1 L1), 3-2 in September 2019, and have conceded at least once in three in a row at home against them for the first time in LaLiga.
Paco Lopez makes three changes to the team that started their last league game as he brings in Postigo, Melero and Leon. Vezo and Gomez drop to the bench.
There's just one change to the Madrid side that beat Alaves last time out. Odriozola comes in for Lucas Vazquez, who misses out with a muscle problem.
LEVANTE SUBS: Daniel Cardenas, Enis Bardhi, Ruben Rochina, Ruben Vezo, Tono, Dani Gomez, Koke Vegas, Coke, Edgar Sevikyan, Son, Rober Pier.
LEVANTE STARTING XI (4-4-2): Aitor Fernandez, Jorge Miramon, Oscar Duarte, Sergio Postigo, Carlos Clerc; Gonzalo Melero, Mickael Malsa, Nemanja Radoja, Jose Luis Morales; Sergio Leon, Roger Marti.
REAL MADRID SUBS: Isco, Vinicius Junior, Victor Chust, Marcelo, Diego Altube, Mariano, Andriy Lunin, Sergio Arribas, Antonio Blanco.
REAL MADRID STARTING XI (4-3-3): Thibaut Courtois; Alvaro Odriozola, Eder Militao, Raphael Varane, Ferland Mendy; Luka Modric, Casemiro, Toni Kroos; Marco Asensio, Karim Benzema, Eden Hazard.
Madrid are looking to close the gap to Atletico Madrid at the top of the table with a win today and come into today unbeaten in their last nine league games (W7 D2), winning all four of their home games in that run. They face a Levante side that have only lost one of their previous 11 games in all competitions and haven't lost any of their last six outings (W3 D3).
