Hernandez played well in place of
the ill Karim Benzema and scored in
the 38th when he headed Rodriguez s
cross in off the grass.
Ronaldo made it 3-0 with an elec-
trifying slalom to dribble past two
defenders and cap a counterattack start-
ed by Isco.
Rodriguez scored five minutes later
after deftly controlling Toni Kroos
lobbed pass with his chest, and Isco
finished off the demoralized Levante
in the 82nd.
Madrid s Luca Modric was substi-
tuted in the 79th for a possible leg
injury, giving Alvaro Medran his debut.
Eibar was not intimidated by its first
match at Camp Nou, choosing its
moments well to go forward and almost
surprised Barcelona twice in an even-
ly-matched first half. Forward Ander
Capa misfired on an open goal from
an angle in the 41st after he received
a long pass and rounded Bravo, and
three minutes later Bravo had to rush
out to block Saul Berjon s attempt.
Eibar hung on for an hour until Messi
turned playmaker by picking out Xavi s
run and threading a ball through for
the captain to score in the 60th.
Neymar calmed the uneasy Camp
Nou crowd by volleying in Dani Alves
cross in the 72nd for his eighth league
goal of the season, and the Brazil striker
worked a one-two to help Messi fire
the ball in off the upright two minutes

do netted his 14th and 15th goals
to set a record scoring start in a
Spanish league season as Real
Madrid eased to a 5-0 win at Lev-
ante yesterday, while Lionel Messi
scored to move one goal from the
competition s all-time scorer.
Messi guided league leader
Barcelona to a 3-0 win at home
over promoted Eibar, setting up
Xavi Hernandez to break through
in the second half and scoring after
Neymar had doubled the lead.
Messi is now poised to equal
Telmo Zarra s milestone of 251 goals
that has stood since 1955 next week
at rival Madrid s Santiago Bernabeu
Barcelona goalkeeper Claudio
Bravo also extended his record of
not conceding a goal to eight
matches as the Catalan club main-
tained its four-point advantage
over Madrid at the top of the

provisional second place, with wins
While Messi closed on Zarra,
Ronaldo made sure to make his
own mark by breaking a record
that had stood since the 1943-44
season when Oviedo s Esteban
Echevarria scored 14 goals through
the first eight rounds.
The Ballon d Or holder opened
from the penalty spot in the 13th
minute before adding another goal
in the 61st, increasing his league-
leading tally to 15 goals in eight
rounds despite missing one game
due to injury.
"It is impossible to do more than
what (Ronaldo) does," said Madrid
coach Carlo Ancelotti. "There are
no goals without sacrifice, a fight-
ing spirit and concentration."
Javier Hernandez, James
Rodriguez and Francisco "Isco"
Alarcon also scored to rout the
overmatched hosts at Ciutat de
Ancelotti said that Gareth Bale
didn t play because of pain in his
gluteus. The manager rested him
as a precaution with Madrid vis-
iting Liverpool in the Champions
League on Wednesday before the
first "clasico" match of the season
three days later.
Elsewhere, Manuel "Nolito"
Agudo continued his strong cam-
paign by scoring in the 73rd to give
Celta Vigo a 1-1 draw at Athletic
Bilbao, keeping the Basque club
with one win in 10 matches in all
competitions not counting its
elimination of Napoli from the
Champions League playoffs.
Ronaldo has scored 19 goals in
all competitions and found the net
in 10 of his 12 appearances overall
for Madrid. He also grabbed a
stoppage-time winner for Portugal
in a 1-0 victory over Denmark in
a European Championship qualifier
Hernandez had a part in Ronal-
do s first goal when he took a pass
in the area and was fouled from
behind by Juanfran Garcia. Ronaldo
Ronaldo sets best scoring start
Juventus dropped its first points of
the season as it was held to a surprise
1-1 draw by bottom club Sassuolo
yesterday and saw its lead at the top
of the Serie A table cut to one point
ahead of Roma.
Sassuolo took a shock lead in the
12th minute through Simone Zaza but
Paul Pogba leveled almost immediately
with a magnificent strike.
The result ends a run of 13 consec-
utive league victories for Juventus.
Earlier, Roma cruised to a 3-0 win
over Chievo Verona, with all the goals
coming in the first half.
Mattia Destro and Adem Ljajic
scored before a penalty from Francesco

Wednesday in their European
encounter. Leonardo Bonucci---who
had scored a controversial winner
against Roma before the international
break---thought he had given Juventus
an early lead but he was flagged offside.
Moments later Sassuolo went in front.
Bonucci cleared Zaza s initial shot off
the line, but the ball eventually came
back to the Italy striker, who fired
home. It was only the third goal Juven-
tus had conceded all season.
However, Sassuolo s lead lasted little
more than five minutes before Pogba
curled the ball into the far corner from
the edge of the area.
Sassuolo looked the stronger in the
second half and had several chances
to restore its advantage as Juventus

perfect start when Destro headed in

Juventus draws 1-1 at Sassuolo
PARIS---Midfielder Fabien Lemoine
scored a late winner to help Saint-
Etienne win 1-0 yesterday at Lorient
and move into fourth place.
Striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel had
a shot in each half saved by goalkeeper
Benjamin Lecomte, and winger Max-
Alain Gradel failed to connect from
Kevin Monnet-Paquet s cross in the
78th minute when left unmarked.
But Lemoine atoned for those misses
in the 87th with a low shot from outside
the penalty area.
Lille wasted a chance to move above
Saint-Etienne and provisionally take
third spot after losing 2-1 at home to
Guingamp, as the relegation battlers
moved off the bottom of the table and
into 18th spot. Goals from midfielder
Claudio Beauvue and striker Ronnie
Schwartz put the visitors 2-0 up before
veteran midfielder Rio Mavuba pulled
one back late on for Lille, which is in
Meanwhile, fifth-place Nantes took
the lead early on through striker Johan
Audel, only for Brazilian midfielder
Diego Rigonato to equalise in the second
half with his first goal of the season.

mid-table Monaco beat strugglers Evian
2-0, and Nice lost 1-0 at home to Cor-
sican side Bastia amid ugly scenes at
the end as about dozens of Nice sup-
porters invaded the field, with some
seeking to confront Bastia s players.
Midfielder Floyd Ayite scored Bastia s
winner early in the second half, while
a second-minute penalty from Portugal
midfielder Joao Moutinho and a 70th-
minute effort from winger Yannick Fer-
reira Carrasco helped Monaco into 11th
