Real Madrid suffered a 2-0 defeat to Levante in the 21st round of la Liga, as the royal club appeared dull and frustrated.

Several factors played a role in Real Madrid's defeat to Levante, the first of which was the early dismissal by Eder Militao in the ninth minute with an unforgivable error from the Real Madrid defense, which advanced too much until it reached near the middle of the opponent's stadium.

To leave behind a vast space exploited by the Juventus striker who started very quickly also showed the slowness of Rafael Varane both in the run and in the reaction, to intervene Militao and block him in order to prevent him from reaching the goal of Tebo Courtois.

Real Madrid's defense honors Levante attack

The dismissal and the numerical deficit led to Casemiro's return to the center of defense, relying on Toni Kroos to play the Brazilian's key role in midfield, breaking the opponent's attacks.

But Kroos did not succeed in this role, which is not a surprise as he has failed on many occasions to play this role and his involvement in this position usually leads to problems for the Real Madrid midfield and leaves the team's defense exposed.

Another factor that contributed to the loss of Real Madrid was right-back Alvaro Odrozola, who was a clear weakness in the team, especially in terms of defensive coverage, and caused his poor coverage in Levante's first goal.

Real Madrid's defense, as always, is lacking in focus, strength, and intensity, welcoming the opponent's attackers and leaving them with great generosity, as was the situation in Levante's second goal, which Was scored by Rodger Martí from inside the penalty area while standing uncensored.

From defense to attack, Real Madrid appeared totally helpless from an offensive point of view, with Eden Hazard continuing to atone on the pitch without real impact or effectiveness.

Benzema was far from the level expected of him and wasted a dangerous opportunity given to him by Toni Kroos strangely, while Marco Asensio, although he scored his team's only goal, could have killed the game had it not been for his patronage in the second half.

The lack of attacking efficiency for Real Madrid was one of the reasons that cost him today's match, as it cost him the absence of substitutes who can make the difference, the entry of Vinicius Junior was not only useful at all but on the contrary almost disastrous after he caused a penalty for Levante.

The other changes, first only eight minutes before the end of the game, came second with no real importance whether Mariano Diaz would enter instead of Karim Benzema or Sergio Arribas instead of Marco Asensio, as the two real crises in the attack did not solve the opportunity and record.
