Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane left fuming by a last-minute Levante equaliser in their La Liga clash

Posted: 5 February 2018 Time: 15:00

Underfire Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane was left 'disgusted' by his sides inability to see off the game after their 2-2 draw with Levante in the Spanish Primera League clash on Saturday.

Captain Sergio Ramos handed the visitors and 11th minute lead before Emmanuel Okyere Boateng leveled matters before the break.

Isco's goal nine minutes from time looked likely to be the winner for Los Blancos, but the relegation threatened outfit earned a crucial point with veteran Italian forward Giampaolo Pazzini netting in the 89th minute.

The result leaves Madrid 19 points adrift of leaders Barcelona, albeit the fourth placed side having a game in hand over the Blaugrana.

"I'm disgusted with the result, it's hard to take," Zidane said in the post-match press conference. "After our second goal we had to control the ball, nothing else, and defensively we were not good.

"The truth is the game was under control and we had done the hard part, which is scoring. We scored the second, 2-1, but we made two errors and they scored two goals against us."

Los Merengues have only the UEFA Champions League to play for the rest of the season, after being knocked out of the Copa del Rey by mid-table Leganes last month.
