After a lively match, Real Madrid snatched the draw from Levante (3-3). Carlo Ancelotti’s men came back twice. Confident after their wide 4-1 victory on Alavés’ lawn during the first day, Real Madrid traveled to Valencia this Sunday to face Levante. The match: 3-3 From the first minutes, Gareth Bale, tenured for the second time in a row, animated the meeting. On an effort on the left side of Karim Benzema, the Welshman served in the box landed a clear shot left footed that deceived Aitor Fernandez. Levante did not abdicate however and put his foot on the ball to build his game for the next twenty minutes. Insufficient, however, to surprise well organized Merengues, which then worked in lightning offensives to accentuate the gap. At the resumption, the Granotes offered a different face from the start. On a service between the lines of Gonzalo Melero, Roger Marti, top scorer in the club’s history, deceived Thibaut Courtois in the 46th minute. The Belgian goalkeeper slowed down the ball, without being able to stop it.

The middle struck a sublime recovery right which ended its course in the nets of Thibaut Courtois. Ancelotti, annoyed, left Eden Hazard in the 59th, after yet another far too tender game, to bring in Vinicius Junior. The Brazilian then immediately brought energy and speed to Madrid’s offensives. On a magnificent opening on the ground from Casemiro, Vinicius started a solo race in the 73rd minute, and swooped down towards Levante’s goal, chased by Jorge Miramon. The Brazilian appeared in front of Aitor Fernandez and deceived the Spanish goalkeeper with a shot low to the ground on the left. After a third goal from Levante in the 79th, Vinicius equalized once again on a service from Karim Benzema (3-3). The action: Aitor Fernandez catches the ball … 40 meters from his cages. After Vinicius Junior’s second goal, Real Madrid kept pushing and continued their quick attacks towards the goal of the Spanish goalkeeper. In a counterattack, the Brazilian striker found himself alone. Aitor Fernandez did not think long before going out and mowing down the Madrid winger 40 meters from his cages. Immediate red card for the doorman who until then had a good meeting. A crazy gesture? Surely. But the action made it possible to stop an offensive which could certainly have been concluded by Vinicius Junior. read also The results of the 2nd day of La Liga The player: Vinicius Junior, brilliant for his entry Upon entering in the 59th minute of play, the Brazilian winger transformed Real Madrid, until then stunned by the two goals shot on Levante stroke. Relevant in the game, lively and skilful with the ball, Vinicius was able to wake up his sleeping teammates and offer himself a decisive double for his season, and probably that of the Merengues. Alone after a magnificent opening from Casemiro (73rd) or on a curled shot served by Karim Benzema (85th), Vinicius showed himself in a different light. Carlo Ancelotti will surely think about it when making his starting eleven against Betis next Saturday (10 p.m.). Eden Hazard has something to feel threatened. read also La Liga standings
