Real Madrid, the defending champion, was at the top of the Spanish League table, by defeating its host Levante 2-0 in the fifth stage in a match in which Frenchman Karim Benzema scored his 250th goal for the royal club in all competitions since 2009.

Brazilian young Vinicius Junior paved the way for Real’s third victory this season by scoring the first goal (16), before Benzema added the goal to confirm the victory in stoppage time (90 + 5).

Real raised its score to 10 points from four games, while Levante stuck at three points in eighteenth place.

Vinicius Junior was also credited with defeating Valladolid in the last stage by scoring the only winning goal a few minutes after he was involved as a substitute.

The French Zinedine Zidane relied on a different squad than the one that beat Valladolid, as Nacho and French Ferland Mendi replaced the injured Alvaro Odriozola and the Brazilian Marcelo in the back line, and Marco Asensio and Vinicius Junior were in the front instead of the Serbian Luka Jovitic and Isco.

Zidane’s men played a good way in the face of a defensive opponent, as they started from the first moments pressuring the homeowner’s goal, and the first initiative was in the third minute, but Casemiro did not succeed in translating his chance into a goal.

Vinicius Junior opened the scoring after receiving a ball sent by Croatian Luka Modric from a corner, and he speeded it up with a shot that ended in the net of goalkeeper Aitor Fernandes (16).

Despite being late with a goal, Levante continued his retreat and closed his area, preventing his guests from penetrating his lines, but the shape of the match changed in the second half, as Levante dominated in the field after modifying the tactics from solid defense to the pressing attack on the Belgian goal Thibaut Courtois, especially through North Macedonian Anis Barthe Which exhausted the defenders of Real and the guard behind them.

Captain Sergio Ramos scored a goal that the referee canceled after returning to the video assistant referee (VAR) technique for committing a foul while climbing to hit the ball with his head (70).

Bazri missed two consecutive chances in the 75th and 79th minutes after Courtois was on the lookout for him.

While the referee was about to launch the final whistle, Benzema snatched the ball from behind the middle of the stadium and advanced in it to stand alone with the goalkeeper and hit far from the goalkeeper’s reach (90 + 5), raising his score to 250 in the team’s jersey since joining him in 2009 from Lyon, in fourth place behind the Juventus star. The current Italian of Portugal is Cristiano Ronaldo (450) and the two legends Raul Gonzalez (324) and Alfred Di Stefano (266).

In a second match, Osasuna defeated Celta Vigo with two straight goals scored by Argentine Fukando Roncaglia (23) and Jonathan Callieri (76).

Alaves also beat at home to Athletic Bilbao with a goal scored by Brazilian Rodrigo Illy (74).

The match saw defender Robin Sanchez sent off for receiving two yellow cards within two minutes (85 and 86).
