A start marked for inaccuracies

The match started with a slow tempo and the feeling that neither the Levante nor Villarreal CF were able to offer their best game. Equality was the dominant trend during the first 20 minutes, although it was the team from Valencia who starred the best actions in attack.

Setback for Marcelino Garcia Toral

Villarreal were reduced to ten players after 36 minutes, after Bojan Jokić saw his second yellow card. Thus, the Castellón´s team manager had to give up a striker as Nahuel Leiva to rebuild their defense with the entry of Jaume Costa.

Areola held Villarreal

After Jokić's sending off, Levante came up and put its opponent in a lot of trouble. In this situation, the French goalkeeper was key to the "Amarillo" team, keeping a clean sheet before the break with a solo performance of stops. Roger Marti, twice, Lerma and Jefferson were the players who encountered to the good work of Gallic goalkeeper.

Little involvement of Villarreal attackers

Villarreal accused the few appearances of their attacking players during the match. Roberto Soldado, Samuel Garcia or Samu Castillejo could not intimidate a Levante defense that was very solid and well-built at all times.

Deyverson decided the clash 

In the 83rd minute, a cross by Nabil Ghilas from the left flank was kicked by Deyverson in one-touch and the ball went straight to the back of the net. The goal of the Brazilian, his second in this season, served for the Valencia team could get its first win of the course.
