Real Madrid lose again at home, Sevilla keep excellent form

Real Madrid lose again at home, Sevilla keep excellent form”

Jose Luis Morales' impressive half-volley drew Levante level on the half-hour and although Thibaut Courtois kept Madrid in the game with a 61st-minute penalty save from Roger Marti, Marti got his revenge when he headed home the winning goal in the 77th minute.

The inspired goalkeeper was belatedly beaten for a second time, though, as Los Blancos failed to close the seven-point gap to Atletico Madrid, who now have two games in hand and face Cadiz on Sunday.

Marco Asensio gave Madrid the lead four minutes later but Jose Luis Morales equalised close to half-time before Roger Marti made up for missing a penalty by scoring the victor.

"It's a hard defeat for us because it was an uphill struggle for us from the ninth minute", said Bettoni, who took charge of the game as Zinedine Zidane was still recovering from COVID-19.

Marti then had the opportunity to put Levante into the lead but his penalty kick was saved by Courtois shortly after the hour mark. "The players are very sad but they have the spirit to keep fighting until the end". "We have to win and hope that the others lose".

Militao was sent off for bringing down Levante's Sergio Leon, who was darting towards goal when Militao cut across him on the edge of the penalty area.

Regardless, Real Madrid took the lead via Marcos Asensio in the 13th minute after the forward controlled a pass from Toni Kroos and fired past Levante goalie Fernandez Abaris.

Levante were risky, though, and drew level before the interval as Jorge Miramon's cross to the back post was expertly caught on the half-volley by Morales. Real Madrid were one man down at that time.

Asensio's goal was the third key move.
