Saturday's La Liga Round-up: Levante Score Late Goal To Draw 2-2 With Real Madrid

 Real Madrid conceded an 89th-minute equaliser against relegation-threatened Levante as the defending champions got a shock 2-2 draw away.
Madrid had dominated the first half, and led through Sergio Ramos' header early on, with the Spanish defender rising to head home a corner for his 50th league goal for Real.

But Levente struck back when Emmanuel Boateng equalised with a well-placed shot after Jose Morales' initial effort was saved by Keylor Navas.

Zinedine Zidane's men looked to have sealed the victory when Isco smashed home from inside the box after Karim Benzema's cut back after 81 minutes.

However, the drama was not over as Giampaolo Pazzini ensured the hosts earned a points for their efforts when Navas failed to keep his shot out with just minutes remaining.

The draw leaves Real Madrid fourth in La Liga, 18 points behind leaders Barcelona who play Espanyol on Sunday.
