Isco, a second half substitute, had just put Real Madrid 1-2 ahead in what was a tough game for the reigning Liga champions at Levante. Seconds after, Cristiano Ronaldo was substituted off for Marco Asensio in what is believed to have been a change planned before the goal. Los Blancos had around 10 minutes to hold onto their lead with the Portuguese star having endured a frustrating night.

"Focus on the game" - Cristiano

Once seated on the bench, he quickly noticed one of the television camera operators had turned attention to the number seven and he didn't appear pleased. Rather than ignore it though, which happens to most high-profile players in most games, the Madrid star gave some clear instructions, "Don't film me, focus on the game!".

Frustrating night in Valencia for Cristiano

And things got worse for Cristiano and all those connected with Real Madrid as a late strike from Levante debutant Pazzini levelled the game and ensured more questions would be asked about a perceived 'crisis' in the capital.
