    10-man Real Madrid slipped to a shock 1-0 defeat at Levante Sunday with a second half goal from Arouna Kone settling a scrappy match.
    Arch-rivals Barcelona had put on an eight-goal show against Osasuna 24 hours earlier, but Real were unable to match them after their task was made harder by the dismissal of Sami Khedira for a second yellow card.
    Kaka missed an early chance and Karim Benzema looked a danger, but Real lacked a real goal threat as Jose Mourinho rested Cristiano Ronaldo.
    But with their 100 per cent record at stake he brought on the Portuguese star for the second half only for him to make little impression.
    Promoted Levante grew more confident and Kone smashed the ball home in the 68th minute for the only goal of the game.
    Defeat leaves Real a point behind Barcelona and three adrift of early La Liga leaders Valencia.
