Commentary

That's all for today, goodbye!
Madrid miss the chance to leapfrog Barcelona back into the top spot on the table, but Zidane will be hoping his side can bounce back as they have a big week ahead of them starting with a Champions League match against Manchester City before facing Barcelona at the weekend. Levante move up to 10th in the table and their attention now turns to their games against Eibar next week.
Madrid's unbeaten run in the league comes to an end with a 1-0 defeat to Levante. Zidane's side were on top for the majority of the game but weren't able to beat Fernandez with Modric, Benzema and Hazard all forcing saves out of the keeper. Levante stayed in the game and nicked it in the 79th minute when Morales fired a brilliant volley past Courtois at his near post from a tight angle on the left of the box.
90' + 5' FULL-TIME: LEVANTE 1-0 REAL MADRID.
90' + 4' Marcelo whips another good cross into the box and this time, he manages to pick out Ramos on the penalty spot. He rises higher than his defender and heads it on target, but it's straight at Fernandez who holds onto it.
90' + 2' Postigo tries to play a long ball over the top to Leon, just to ease some of the pressure on the defenders as Madrid are closing them down high up the field. It's overhit though and runs straight through to Courtois.
90' Marcelo makes another good run into the box from the left and he cuts the ball back into the middle from the byline. Three Levante players go over to him and block the cross so it can't reach Benzema.
Sergio León
Borja Mayoral
88' Lopez uses his last substitution now as Leon comes on to replace Mayoral.
87' Varane caught Mayoral with a late challenge and he stays down. Carvajal and Varane both try to pull him up and the referee has to go across to have a word with them as their frustration starts to show.
85' Melero chips a pass over Ramos and into Mayoral's feet. He had to take a touch to set himself which gives Varane the chance to get in front of him and make a good block to stop his shot.
83' Vinicius plays a clever one-two with Marcelo to create more space down the left before cutting into the box and squaring his cross into Benzema. Gonzalez slides in just ahead of him to stop him from having an easy tap-in.
F. Valverde
L. Modrić
81' Final roll of the dice for Zidane now as he brings on Valverde for Modric.
Pablo Martínez
José Luis Morales
80' That goal was Morales' last touch of the ball as he's taken off by Lopez and replaced by Martinez.
N. Vukčević
Assist
79' Vukcevic was in his own half when he got his head up and spotted Morales' run. He chipped his pass over Modric to set up the goal.
José Luis Morales
Goal
79' LEVANTE TAKE THE LEAD! Morales times his run perfectly to stay onside and Modric just can't get close to him. He lets the ball bounce in front of him before hitting his shot on the volley from a tight angle on the left of the box and Courtois is beaten at his near post. 1-0 Levante!
77' Marcelo makes a driving run into the box and plays a one-two with Kroos to get himself into more space. He can't control the return pass but does win a corner after his first touch bounces off Miramon.
75' Madrid don't deal with the corner into the box by Levante as Bardhi dispossesses Casemiro just outside the box. He has another chance to put the ball into the area, but it's a poor cross from him which Courtois holds onto.
Lucas Vázquez
Isco
73' Second change for Madrid now and it's Isco making way for Vazquez.
Casemiro
Yellow Card
71' Casemiro is booked after he catches Vukcevic with a late challenge from behind.
69' Mayoral beats Marcelo to the loose ball on the right wing and turns before playing a low cross back into the six-yard box. Melero has made a run to the far post which means Courtois can come off his line to collect it.
Vinícius Júnior
E. Hazard
67' Zidane is also making a change and Hazard limps off the field as Vinicius comes on in his place. That injury could be worrying for Zidane as his team have big matches against Manchester City and Barcelona in the next week.
Melero
Roger Martí
67' First change of the game for Levante sees Marti coming off to be replaced by Melero.
66' There's a bit of a mix-up at the back between Varane and Carvajal which allows Mayoral to nick the ball off them. He tries to lay it off to Marti first time, but Ramos gets back just in time to cut it out.
64' Modric squares the ball to Isco on the left of the box and he tries to catch out the keeper at his near post. It's a wild effort from him in the end though and he fires his effort well wide of the near post.
62' Benzema is getting into some good positions between the Levante defenders, but each time he makes the runs to get on the end of his team-mates' passes, he ends up getting caught offside and the chances are going to waste.
60' Mayoral breaks quickly through the middle for Levante but is being tightly marked by Kroos the whole way. He holds it up on the edge of the box before squaring it to Marti, but his low shot is straight at Courtois who makes the save.
58' GOOD SAVE! Campana is a long way out from goal but decides to have a go when some space opens up. He drills his shot towards goal and a big deflection off Ramos makes it difficult for Courtois but he manages to push it away from the bottom corner.
56' Isco is bundled to ground on the right wing and Madrid win a free-kick. Kroos whips the cross into the crowd of players waiting in the box and Benzema nods it down, but the flag goes up for offside.
54' The Madrid players are asking for a penalty as the ball hit Tono's arm as he brought down the corner. It was tight to his side though and the referee waves the claims away.
53' GOOD CHANCE! Marcelo picks out Hazard with a great throughball into the box and he takes a touch to get past his defender. He keeps his shot low and Fernandez comes off his line to make the save.
52' Bardhi fizzes a cross into the box and Mayoral gets in front of Marcelo so he can bring the ball down. He knees it up onto his arm as he starts to turn back to goal so the referee blows for a Madrid free-kick.
50' Madrid are keeping the pressure on Levante high upfield as Isco chips a cross into the box to Benzema at the far post, but Gonzalez gets there first. His clearance only goes as far as Modric and Madrid start their next attack.
48' CLOSE! Bardhi cuts inside from the left and decides to have a go from the edge of the box. He curls it around towards the near post but doesn't trouble Courtois as it flies wide of the target.
46' Madrid get us back underway for the second half!
Madrid did look the more likely to score in the first half, but Zidane will expect his side to improve in front of goal after the break if they want to win this game and go back to the top of the table. As for Levante, they haven't managed a single shot on target yet and Lopez knows that his team will need to change that if they want to get something out of this match.
It's goalless at the break between Levante and Real Madrid. The away side created more chances in the first half, with Modric and Benzema both forcing a couple of saves out of the goalkeeper. Casemiro had the best chance when he latched onto a loose punch by Fernandez, but he headed his effort just wide.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: LEVANTE 0-0 REAL MADRID.
44' Marcelo is getting into some good positions high on the left wing and Levante can't seem to stop him from getting on the ball. He puts another low cross into the box towards Benzema, but this one is cut out by Postigo.
42' Marti tries to play a one-two with Bardhi down the right so he can get himself into a better position in the box. Carvajal is quick to get across to him though and he cuts out the return pass.
40' GOOD SAVE! Isco squares the ball to Modric, who is unmarked just outside the penalty area, and he sets himself for the shot. It's a good hit, but it's straight at the goalkeeper who pushes it away with strong hands.
39' Isco does well to keep the ball under pressure on the edge of the box and he pokes it to Benzema. He's one-on-one with the keeper but chooses to square it to Hazard instead of having a shot. It's one pass too many and the chance goes to waste.
37' Ramos plays a brilliant pass over the top which Isco brings down on the edge of the box. He takes it around the keeper before losing control of the ball which allows Gonzalez to clear it, but the flag had gone up for offside anyway.
Roger Martí
Yellow Card
35' Marti has his eyes on the ball but he backs into Casemiro with a lot of force and sends him to ground, so he's shown a yellow card.
34' Modric turns with the ball on the halfway line and plays a good throughball forward to Isco. His first touch lets him down on the edge of the box though and it bounces straight to Postigo who clears it away.
32' Marcelo spots Modric's run to the edge of the box and picks him out with a great cross. The midfielder takes a touch before hitting the shot towards goal, but a deflection off Isco's back takes it over the bar.
30' There are loud shouts around the stadium from the home fans as they feel their side should've had a free-kick. Marti went down under pressure from Ramos, but the referee chose to wave play on.
28' Benzema tries to play a one-two with Marcelo to create more space for himself in the box. He lays it off to the Brazilian, but his low cross back into the middle is cut out well by Postigo.
26' Levante are starting to find their rhythm a bit more now and are starting to push forward with more intent than before. They're still struggling to find a way in behind Madrid at times though.
24' Tono cuts inside from the left and swings a great cross into the six-yard box. Marti is sliding in to try and poke it in from close range but Varane spots the danger and clears it before he can make contact.
22' Carvajal swings a good cross into the box from the right and Hazard chooses to leave it instead of bringing it down to have a shot. Nobody is waiting behind him though and Miramon is happy to see it out of play for a throw-in.
20' Levante win the ball back on the edge of their own box again and Bardhi has the chance to break down the left. Varane spots the danger but ends up taking the player out in his effort to win it back.
18' Bardhi squares the ball to Campana on the edge of the box and he takes a touch to set himself before taking the shot. He's aiming for the top-right corner, but Ramos is in the right place to make the block.
16' CLOSE! Kroos whips a corner into the box and it's a poor punch by Fernandez. He gives it to Casemiro and he heads it back towards goal, but his effort is just wide of the far post.
15' At home, Levante have played 13 LaLiga matches against Madrid, winning just one (D2 L10), a 1-0 win in September 2011.
13' Morales has nobody around him as he breaks quickly down the right for Levante. He has Mayoral to his left making a run into the box, but he overhits his cross and the chance goes to waste.
11' GOOD CHANCE! Isco threads the ball between two Levante defenders to pick out Benzema who is one-on-one with the goalkeeper. He keeps his shot low as he sidefoots it towards goal and Fernandez comes off his line to block it.
Sergio Ramos
Yellow Card
10' Ramos picks up the first yellow card of the game after he catches Miramon with a late challenge.
8' Levante have the chance to break after winning the ball back on the edge of their penalty area and Campana looks to set Morales down the right. He overhits the pass though and sends it straight out of play.
6' Carvajal is given a lot of space on the right to run into and he squares the ball to Benzema on the edge of the box. He gets away from Gonzalez and drills his shot towards the near post, but it's a comfortable save for Fernandez.
4' Madrid are seeing a lot of the ball in the opening minutes of the game, but it's all in their own half at the moment. Hazard makes a driving run forward to try and get his team on the attack, but he's nudged off it by Campana.
2' Benzema drops deep to get on the ball and plays a first-time throughball into the box for Isco to run onto. He gets away from Gonzalez, but Fernandez comes out of his box to clear the danger.
1' Mayoral gets the game underway for Levante!
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away.
Levante have won just one of their last 14 LaLiga games against Madrid (D2 L11), with that win coming away from home (2-1 in October 2018).
Zidane makes just two changes to his team after their draw with Celta Vigo last weekend. Modric and Isco both come into the starting line-up with Valverde dropping to the bench. Gareth Bale misses out due to an illness.
Paco Lopez makes three changes to the side that lost to Villarreal last time out as he brings in Gonzalez, Tono and Morales. Clerc starts on the bench, while Ruben Rochina misses out through injury.
REAL MADRID SUBS: Alphonse Areola, Federico Valverde, James Rodriguez, Eder Militao, Vinicius Junior, Lucas Vazquez, Ferland Mendy.
REAL MADRID STARTING XI (4-3-3): Thibaut Courtois; Dani Carvajal, Raphael Varane, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo; Luka Modric, Casemiro, Toni Kroos; Isco, Karim Benzema, Eden Hazard.
LEVANTE SUBS: Koke Vegas, Oscar Duarte, Carlos Clerc, Gonzalo Melero, Sergio Leon, Coke, Pablo Martinez.
LEVANTE STARTING XI (4-4-2): Aitor Fernandez; Jorge Miramon, Sergio Postigo, Bruno Gonzalez, Tono; Jose Luis Morales, Jose Campana, Nikola Vukcevic, Enis Bardhi; Roger Marti, Borja Mayoral.
Madrid dropped down to second in the table after Barcelona's win over Eibar earlier today, but Zinedine Zidane's side can go back top with a win. They're unbeaten in their last 15 league matches, last losing in October when they were beaten 1-0 by Real Mallorca. They face a Levante side who have won just one of their last eight outings in all competitions (D1 L6), but that did come in their last home game.
