Levante shock Real Madrid as Zidane side lost 1-0 to miss the chance to move above Barcelona in the La Liga title race. Barcelona beat Eiba 5-0 earlier in the day to go two points clear at the top of the league.

Eden Hazard missed Real’s best chance midway through the second half before the Belgian forward hobbled off injured.

The Spanish giants were then stunned as Nikola Vukcevic played a speculative ball over their defence and winger Morales raced on to it before unleashing a first-time strike from the left side of the Real box.

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois actually pulled his hands away from the ball as Morales’ shot flashed past the Belgian at his near post.

Gareth Bale and fellow forward Luka Jovic were absent through illness, with Isco and Luka Modric the two changes for Real after last week’s 2-2 draw at home to Celta Vigo.
