Prior to the September recess, they had scored 12 goals in four competitive fixtures, but subsequently they have mustered only five in seven games, three of which came at once against Roma in Europe.
Goals from Jose Luis Morales and Roger Marti inside the opening quarter of an hour left Real shell-shocked and Levante went on to seal a famous 2-1 victory in the Spanish capital. The spot-kick was eventually awarded, after consultation with the video assistant referee.
In a frantic period, Madrid thought they had one back when Marco Asensio headed in from under the bar after Casemiro's aerial effort smashed off the woodwork, but another long VAR review denied the hosts due to offside.

But Heller has since become an ally of the president, who has made two fundraising stops for him in Nevada this year already. The heavily immigrant union's voter turnout was credited with giving Democrats key victories in Nevada in 2016.
Benzema saw his strike from the edge of the box come back off the post, before Mariano tucked home but saw the offside flag, as Real's desperate efforts proved in vain and boos rained down at full-time. And even worse that he did so with Julen Lopetegui who is proving to be a failure by every passing game and has not really proven himself really well in the earlier stages of his career too. "My players don't deserve this punishment, we play in the Champions League on Tuesday and we need to recover".
Los Blancos face Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League on Wednesday before El Clasico next weekend, and Lopetegui desperately needs a result against the Czech outfit as he clings on to his position.
Real Madrid enjoyed 71% of the possession during the game but they failed to make the most of it. Madrid also had 34 shots on goal compared to Levante's six. From there he was part of a Madrid defence that was wide open and regularly vulnerable to Levante's counter-attacks, the visitors having a third goal ruled out before the break.
On the other hand, Levante are seventh on the table with 13 points.
