Los Merengues will be out to avenge an embarrassing defeat to Juan Ignacio Martinez’s side earlier this season when they walk out at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday.Madrid lost here last season, dropping vital points which were forgotten in the wake of their league win but now, trailing league leaders Barcelona by an eight-point gap, memories of the loss could not be ignored.Sergio Ballesteros, a veteran defender who you would not like to meet in a darkened alley, sent a clear message to the opposition, carried by the front cover of sports every day Marca: Madrid know what is waiting for them here.
The rain had lashed down on Valencia all afternoon, only adding to the strain and sense of desperation from both sides, with the reigning Italian Champions determined not to concede their title, which would surely be lost with any more dropped points and Levante resolved to give the visitors a hard time.If there was any doubt there would be a fight to the death, the early minutes of the game put paid to that when blood was drawn, literally, only minutes in. As if the sick room at the Santiago Bernabu was not already bursting at the seams with both Gonzalo Higuan and Karim Benzema out through injury, Cristiano Ronaldo, the man drafted in to play the role of the number nine without the strikers, found himself with a disagreeable cut above the eye and requiring stitches on the side of the pitch, following a forearm challenge from David Navarro.Jose Mourinho’s men came out on top in a game that probably ought to have been postponed. Torrential rain had plagued the city of Valencia since around three p.m. on Sunday, meaning los Granotes’ pitch was in shocking condition.With both teams quickly giving up on short passing due to the extreme amount of puddles, a long slog for points ensued.Los Blancos scored from 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 objective in the closing stages.A outstanding 40 fouls were committed and Levante picked up an astonishing six yellow cards.
Real Madrid’s play makers to generate chances in that pitch. The referees could’ve postponed the game, but they decided to kick it off.Jose Mourinho placed Essien alongside Xabi Alonso. This wasn’t a game for Luka Modric. Essien’s physical presence in the midfield allowed Actual Madrid to steal some important balls and also defend well Levante’s chances off corner-kicks and fouls.After that, RaÃºl Albiol entered the game, and they helped Alonso and Essien on the midfield. The game was on Actual Madrid’s hands, but Levante’s Angel received the ball after a lovely first-touch by Martins and scored the objective that tied the game up. The referees should’ve disallowed the objective, as Levante’s striker was offside, but Mourinho’s players didn’t complain to the referee.The best aerial team was going to win the game, and that is what happened. Both of Actual Madrid’s goals came off set pieces. Cristiano Ronaldo got the first and then left the game injured on his eye after David Navarro’s elbow. The French defender should’ve been sent off, but the referee didn’t see the violent hit nor the blood on Cristiano’s face.
