Real Madrid have lost the leadership after being held to a surprise goalless draw by promoted Levante at the Ciutat de Valencia.

It was a frustrating evening for Jose Mourinho's side, who made virtually all the running but could find no way through a Levante defence that had conceded 10 goals in their opening four games - the worst record in La Liga.

The result means Madrid are now two points behind Valencia, who beat Sporting Gijon yesterday.

Madrid came into the match having picked up 10 points from their opening four games but without hitting top gear and without making the most of the chances they have been creating.

And it was a similar story as the big-spending Spanish giants dominated for large spells but with nobody being able to beat Levante goalkeeper Manuel Reina, who helped his side claim their first points at home to Madrid after five previous defeats against the capital club.
