Alvaro Morata’s header in the 84th minute gave Real Madrid a 2-1 victory over Levante on Sunday, for their seventh consecutive La Liga win.
Cristiano Ronaldo suffered an abrasion to his eye in the first two minutes of play after Levante’s David Navarro struck him with an elbow fighting for a ball in the air. The Portuguese superstar would play on, and netted the game’s first goal in the 21st minute.
Xabi Alonso sailed a deep free kick, which bounced right to Ronaldo who fired it home for a 1-0 lead.
Alonso later assisted Morata on the game-winner in the 84th on a set piece deep in Levante’s side.
Angel Rodriguez kept Levante in the match with a goal on the right side of the box in the 62nd by slipping past the Madrid back line after a deep assist from Obafemi Martins.
The game was very physical from the start, with six yellow cards and 27 fouls issued against Levante.
