Bad feeling continues after Real Madrid and Levante game

Posted on November 14, 2012 by admin

It was a crazy night for many reasons on Sunday in Valencia. Real Madrid travelled to the ground of Levante without their two recognised strikers, Gonzalo Higuain and Karim Benzema, due to injuries, Christiano Ronaldo was put into the `9` position, while the young striker, Alvaro Morata, was on the bench.

The pitch was almost unplayable due to a thunderstorm, and the ball kept stopping in puddles of water. Players were slipping and sliding everywhere, evening up the contest in favour of Levante. It was Madrid who made the best of the conditions in the first half, Ronaldo getting the opening goal. Earlier in the game, the Portuguese wizard had to have attention after David Navarro caught him with an elbow, producing a nasty cut above the eye and a swelling that made it more and more difficult for Ronaldo to see properly.

It was unclear whether there was serious intent from Navarro, but he was lucky to stay on the pitch. Despite this, two Levante players have accused the referee of blatantly cheating, saying they were robbed. It did look like Levantw were going to get at least a point from the game. They were alot better in the second half, equalizing and nearly taking the lead from Juanlu.

The youngster Morata made himself an instant hero with the Madrid fans, scoring just a minute after coming on with a well taken header. Mourinho had thought La Liga was slipping away in the rain, but Morata won us all three points and kept us within eight points of Barcelona.

After the game, Pepe and Ballesteros were the players chosen for the drugs test and were placed in a separate room. When a commotion was heard, people rushed into the room to find the two entangled in a brawl. No further action can be taken as there were no witnesses, but you can be sure it will be talked about alot, especially when Levante come to the Bernabeu.
