Real Madrid survived a late scare to narrowly beat Levante 3-2 and secure their first home win of the season, with Karim Benzema being the star yet again.

Real Madrid were simply unstoppable in the first half, with Levante barely getting a touch on the ball. And, within a fifteen-minute period, Los Blancos seemed to have put the game beyond their visitors’ reach, with Karim Benzema scoring twice before Casemiro got on the score sheet as well.

But, early into the second half, Levante pulled a goal back and even though Real Madrid continued to dominate the proceedings, a 75th minute goal from Gonzalo Melero paved the way for a frenetic end to the game. But, Real Madrid held on to their slender advantage to get back to winning ways. And, Benzema was unsurprisingly hailed for another job well done for the Merengues.

James Rodriguez impressed for a second time this season, pulling the strings effortlessly in the middle of the park while providing a fine assist for Benzema’s second goal. And, the Colombian received his fair share of praise as well.

Finally, Eden Hazard was congratulated following his Real Madrid debut, with the Belgian making an early impression.
