Real Madrid’s unbeaten start to the season continued on Sunday as they beat Levante 2-0 in a low-quality encounter.
Scorers: Vinicius 16′, Benzema 90′
Los Blancos were in the midst of an injury crisis coming into this clash but you wouldn’t have known that from the opening exchanges.
The visitors flew out of the blocks and got off to the perfect start as Vinicius Jr curled in an opener.
The Brazilian was looking incredibly sharp but didn’t quite have his shooting boots on right in the second half as he skewed a cross from the left well over the bar when it looked harder to score.
Chances remained at a premium for the reigning champions, but at the other end Thibaut Courtois had little to do either.
There was one final flourish from Madrid however, as Karim Benzema raced clear in injury time to convert a second.
