Levante regain top spot, Madrid win again

Levante UD continue to surprise after Rubén Suárez's added-time free-kick put them back on top of the Liga, while Real Madrid CF moved into second by defeating Villarreal CF.

Levante UD continue to defy the odds in Spain, regaining the Liga lead from FC Barcelona after Rubén Suárez's added-time free-kick earned a dramatic victory against Real Sociedad de Fútbol.

Suárez smashed in the winner in the 93rd minute after Iñigo Martínez's late equaliser had seemingly ended the home side's winning run, which now stands at seven league matches. Daniel Estrada (4) put Sociedad ahead but Nano and a Valdo header had Levante in front just after the hour.

Barcelona defeated Granada CF on Tuesday but Real Madrid CF jumped above them into second thanks to a 3-0 success against Villarreal CF. Karim Benzema scored his fourth of the season five minutes in, with Kaká (11) and Ángel Di María (30) also on target before the break, meaning the Merengues have registered 21 goals in their last five top-flight outings.

Valencia CF leapfrogged Sevilla FC into fourth as Jordi Alba's 82nd-minute goal proved decisive at Real Zarogoza, while Rayo Vallecano de Madrid prevailed 2-0 against ten-man Málaga CF. Real Sporting de Gijón are out of the bottom three following a 2-1 win at RCD Mallorca, and Daniel Güiza's strike (76) earned Getafe CF a 2-2 draw with CA Osasuna.
