FT: Real Madrid 1-1 Levante
...
90+3' OFF THE POST! Toni Kroos cuts back on his right foot and curls a delicious shot that looks destined for the bottom corner, only for the ball to come off the outside of the post!
...
90' 4 minutes of injury time.
...
88' Marcelo hammers a shot after running into the box, drawing a great save from Raul. He tangles with Lerma in the follow through, and kicks out at the prone Levante player. Clear red-card and surprising from the usually professional Madrid defender.
...
88' MARCELO IS RED CARDED!
...
87' SO, SO CLOSE!!! Isco does brilliantly to find space down the right wing and sends in a cross that is begging to be buried. Bale does everything perfectly, rising high and heading the ball back where it came from, only to watch in agony as it flashed inches wide of the post.
...
86' Theo Hernandez gets to the left byline and wins a corner. Isco steps up to take the set-piece, but his delivery to the far post finds Nacho, who heads/shoulders the ball well over the bar. Time is running out for Madrid...
...
82' SAVE! Asensio is found in his favourite position in the box, with the Spaniard curling a left-footed shot to the far post, only for Raul to stick a palm out and deny the Madrid star.
...
82' Campana wastes a corner for Levante from the left wing, kicking it right out of play.
...
81' LUCKY! Nacho bails out Casilla who had needlessly charged off his line and was in no mans land, with Nacho getting back to block Boateng's shot towards an empty net.
...
80' The X-factor seems to be missing from Madrid's game, as Isco attempts to send a through ball to Asensio in the box, but he is inches away 
...
79' Toni Kroos' delivery from the set piece is rather poor, and Raul palms the ball out of danger with ease. 11 minutes to go, and things don't look good for Madrid....
...
78' The game has slowed down considerably as both sets of players appear to have tired considerably. Meanwhile, Carvajal earns a free kick on the right from Tono's handball.
...
74' OOOH! The corner is cleared out to Carvajal, who hammers a long drive towards goal, with a deflection nearly catching out Raul, who eventually collects the ball after a couple of panicked fumbles.
...
74' Toni Kroos dashes over to take a corner - Real Madrid's 12th of the game and their most likely avenue of scoring.
...
72' Mateo Kocacic comes on to replace Lucas Vazquez
...
71' SO CLOSE! With Real Madrid looking for a moment of magic, up steps Asensio with a fantastic, jinking run down the left channel, before attempting to curl the ball to the far post, but his effort flies wide.
...
70' Dani Carvajal slices a cross into Raul's arms, but this time he manages to keep the ball from crossing the line.
...
68' Samu Garcia comes on to replace Ivi Lopez
...
66' Dani Carvajal goes into the book for tripping Lerma.
...
64' Isco has brought more directness to Real Madrid's play, with Kroos now letting fly from distance, but Raul gets down well to make the save.
...
62' Isco comes on to replace Marcos Llorente for Real Madrid.
...
61' INCHES OVER THE BAR! Lucas Vazquez does brilliantly to make a yard of space on the right wing and swing in a cross, with Bale towering above his marker only to head the ball over. He gets a fair amount of applause though...
...
60' Half an hour left and Real Madrid should really be looking at introducing Isco for greater creativity.
...
59' Carvajal swings in a cross from the right after checking back on his left foot, with Asensio getting ahead of his marker, but fails to get any power on his shot.
...
57' Nearly! Marcelo and Theo combine well down the left wing, with Asensio sending a low cross that Boateng almost turns into his own net. Madrid have a corner, but they're unable to make much of it.
...
55' Alegria is replaced by Emmanuel Boateng.
...
54' Lerma miscues a defensive clearance, and a right wing cross ends up as a corner for Real Madrid. Kroos sends in the delivery but Ramos is penalized for a high foot on Lerma, who is down.

Ramos goes into the book, but replays show he barely catches him in the face. Bit of a Rivaldo moment, but it was still dangerous.
...
52' Meanwhile Campagna steps up to take a corner for Levante, but his delivery is poor and Real Madrid clear the ball with ease.
...
51' Alegria is down with an injury, after coming off second best in an aerial challenge with Nacho. The Levante striker then seems to recover miraculously, as most footballers self-healing powers kick in.
...
50' OOOOH! Alegria collects the ball on the right edge of the box, turns and attempts to curl the ball into the far post, but Casilla is alert to get down well and collect the shot.
...
49' Madrid have camped out in the Levante half, but all attempts to chip the ball over the visitors' defence are cleared.
...
47' Alegria goes into the book for a foul on Ramos, who's down and receiving treatment, although replays show it was a bit inadvertent.
...
46' WOOF! Ramos chips a long ball forward to and offside Bale, who first looks like he'll allow Asensio to run onto it, but then move to the ball, with Raul collecting it before the Welshman.
...
46' AND WE'RE OFF! Real Madrid get us underway in the second half, playing from right to left in their all-whites. No changes for either side at half-time.
...
The teams are back out from the tunnel. Kickoff in the second half is coming up!
...
Stay tuned for the second half, which will come up in 10 minutes.
...
HT: Real Madrid 1-1 Levante
...
45+2' OOOH! Kroos hammers a low-skipping shot to the near post, which causes Raul some concern as he fumbles the ball.
...
45+1' Lerma goes into the book for a shove on Toni Kroos' back. The referee seems to have booked him for an accumulation of fouls.
...
45' 2 minutes of injury time.
...
45' BALE WITH ANOTHER MISS! Llorente with a stunning pass to Bale, sending the Welshman clear on the left channel, but Raul sticks an arm out to deny Bale's shot from nestling in the net.
...
43' HOW DID HE NOT SCORE?! Raul palms the ball out to Kroos, who sends Marcelo clear on the left wing, with the Brazilian lofting a ball into the middle, where Bale does superbly to rise high and get his head to the ball, but glances wide!
...
42' Bale and Marcelo combine down the left wing, with the Brazilian's driving run into the box forcing Levante to concede a corner, which Raul deals with unconvincingly, thus resulting in another corner, but this time from the right.
...
41' Levante don't look much like a newly-promoted side - the confidence they have on the ball, especially when under pressure at the back has been impressive. You can see why they've already racked up 4 points this season.
...
Real Madrid have now scored in 71 consecutive games across all competitions, just three short of Santos' all time record of 74.
...
38' WAS THAT A PENALTY?! Theo Hernandez is tripped in the box, with the referee waving appeals away since the ball appeared to have been cleared out by the defender, although replays show otherwise.
...
36' Kroos sends in a great corner and Ramos glances the ball towards goal at the near post, with Raul making a great save, but watches in agony as the ball falls to Vazquez who taps the ball in from a yard out to draw Madrid level!.

Real Madrid 1-1 Levante
...
36' GOAL LUCAS VAZQUEZ!
...
36' Lerma does well to head a cross from the left wing out for a corner, especially with Lucas Vazquez lurking.
