Opening matchday 29 of La Liga, Levante welcomed Sevilla at the Stadium Ciutat de Valencia. Even though the visitors started being ahead on the scoring thanks to Luuk de Jong’s goal, the hosts found the equalizer with an own goal from Diego Carlos. With that, the match ended on a 1-1 draw.
The first chance of the first half was from Levante, already at the 4th minute, obligating goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik to make a good save. After that, Sevilla were the brighter side, creating more chances and threatening.
Even though there were many opportunities during the first, for both sides, the scoring didn’t change and the team went to the locker room with a goalless draw.
Things changed when the second half started. Already at the 46th minute, Sevilla finally broke the deadlock. Munir El Haddadi found Luuk de Jong, who controlled the ball and sent it into the back of the net.
After the early goal, things were pretty much like during the first half. Now, however, the hosts had to fight for an equalizer. They tried with Jose Campana, but once again goalkeeper Vaclik made a good save. The visitors also didn’t stop attacking, obligating goalkeeper Aitor Fernandez to make good saves as well to keep the scoring with just one goal against.
It didn’t seem like Levante would get the equalizer, however, at the 87th minute, they did. After Jorge Miramon’s cross from the right, defender Diego Carlos tried to clean the ball but ended up sending it into the back of his own net. The worse part is that goalkeeper Vaclik was totally on the play and would make the save, and there weren’t any other players from Levante that could make the goal.
Sevilla’s goalkeeper still made an amazing save at the end of the game to keep the 1-1 draw.
With that, Levante is in 12th place, with 35 points. Sevilla, on the other hand, is in 3rd place, with 51 points.
