La Liga: Real Madrid 4-2 Levante

[Monday, February 13, 2012 ]

Real Madrid came from a goal down to beat 10-man Levante 4-2 at home and move 10 points clear at the La Liga summit.

Gustavo Cabral headed Levante into a surprise early lead, but the 43rd-minute dismissal of Vicente Iborra, who picked up a second booking for handling in the area, swung the game in the hosts' favour.

Cristiano Ronaldo opened his account from the resulting spot-kick before adding another five minutes into the second half and completing his treble with a wonderful long-range effort in the 57th minute.

Levante refused to lie down and pulled a goal back on 63 minutes through Arouna Koné, but Karim Benzema made the game safe three minutes later when he curled home an exquisite fourth.
