In an away game at the Cuidad de Valencia stadium, Real Madrid barely escaped the defeat against Levante. As early as in the 5th minute of the football match, Gareth Bale opened the score with Ancelotti’s squad dominating the entire first half. However, Levante restored the parity right after the break adding another one 11 minutes later.
Vinicius Junior substituted Eden Hazard and just 10 minutes later he scored. When Rober Pier fired the ball into the net the hosts took the lead once again. It took 6 minutes for the Brazilian striker to equalize making it 3-3. Aitor Fernandez was given a straight red card 2 minutes later leaving the hosts outnumbered while all the 5 substitutes had been already used. Levante’s defender Ruben Vezo ended up in a goal. The six-goal thriller finished with both sides sharing a point each, to know more watch football highlights.
Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti who re-joined the club this summer has commented on their away clash with Levante (3:3). “The game was crazy and we controlled it initially. We lost two points with a really high-quality first half. There was a bitter aftertaste left. It’s hard to explain, we have to pay attention to all the details. Concentration in defense needs to be higher,” the Italian told the press, claims Marca.
“Isco was one of the best today. As well as Vini. Vinicius has plenty of talent. With qualities like that, you have to score a lot. It will be important for us. Sometimes it’s more important to finish a match than to start it. As for our defensive play, we were very good in the first half. But in the second half we didn’t come out with the right attitude. It was a wrong reaction. Levante’s third goal was bad luck. In the first goal, we didn’t line up correctly, and in the second we gave the opponent three in two, that’s unacceptable.”
