Real Madrid hosted Levante in a tricky encounter at Santiago Bernabéu on Saturday afternoon. Los Blancos are still yet to clean up their firing cylinders this season. The visiting team went in front just after 12 minutes of play through Ivi Lopez. Karim Benzema got injured and limped off the field on 28 minutes. Real Madrid then responded with a goal from Lucas Vas Vázquez in the 35th minute. It seems like the defending champions are missing their main man Christiano Ronaldo who is serving a five-match ban. And many online casino players and gamblers have lost a lot of money because of the stars red-card.
