Real Madrid are looking good for their first title in four years after they beat Levante 4-2 on Sunday evening. There was an early scare when Cabral headed the visitors in to the lead following a Farinós free kick early on, and Casillas had to be on his toes to keep out Iborra later in the first half. But otherwise Madrid dominated, Benzema having a strike ruled out incorrectly for offside and Higuaín bringing a good save out of Munúa before Cristiano Ronaldo equalised from the penalty spot after Iborra picked up a second booking for handling in the area. Ronaldo scored two more in the first ten minutes of the second half to complete a rapid hat-trick, the first with a header from Higuaín's cross, and the second with a dipping shot over the head of the keeper. Koné scored again for Levante, heading in an Oscar Serrano cross on the hour mark, but Benzema restored the two goal cushion just three minutes later, and Özil almost netted a fifth when he burst through only to see his shot come back off the post. With nineteen victories already, Mourinho's side are already breaking the record books, and after Barcelona's defeat yesterday they have opened up a massive ten point gap at the top.
