Real Madrid lose 2 points after 1-1 home draw against Levante

"They (Espanyol) always play hard in these games and we came through a difficult game on top", said Barca coach Ernesto Valverde.

After this draw, Real Madrid are provisionally in the fourth position with five points, while Levante hold the fifth place in the La Liga standings with the same number of points.

It is the second straight game this season the LaLiga champions Madrid will be dropping points following the 2-2 draw against Valencia before the worldwide break.

Vinales beats Dovizioso to Misano pole
Meanwhile, Vinales brought his Yamaha home in fourth place, over 16 seconds behind Marquez and five behind Dovizioso. Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing Team Gresini) moved up slightly on his last lap, and completes the third row in P9.

Bale then had two chances to put Madrid ahead, but saw a header glanced just wide, before Raul did well to save his left foot shot after he had used his pace to get round the back of the Levante defense.

"He [Ronaldo] could say "today I will relax", but he pushes others and makes them better". "With the chances we created, we must be more effective".

"Karim Benzema has been diagnosed with an injury in the semimembranosus muscle of the right leg", Madrid said in a statement without specifying Benzema's estimated recovery time.

Real Madrid did level the scores in the 36th minute, however, when Vazquez tapped home from close range after Levante goalkeeper Raul Fernandez had palmed a header from Ramos straight into the path of the Spain global.
