Levante believe again with a penalty in the 90th minute


Levante achieved three gold points in its goal of continuing in the Santander League thanks to an agonizing victory against Real Sociedad (2-1), in a match on matchday 35, resolved with a penalty converted by Gonzalo Melero in the last minute of the crash.

The Granotas, who had not won two games, are already three points from salvation while waiting for the rest of the day after knocking Real to the buzzer. The Ciutat de València was an absolute party with his team, who feed his faith with three games to go before the end of the season.

Levante knew how to suffer and found the fortune that they have not had throughout the course. Isak crashed the ball into the crossbar twice, the first at half an hour and the second, in the final act. In between, Morales was close to the goal twice, but Remiro became a giant on both occasions.

The clearest opportunity for the ‘txuri urdin’ team was signed by Gorosabel with a shot that was hardly strong but was headed for the net when Son took it out ‘in extremis’. Levante resisted those of Imanol Alguacil and gradually grew in the second half. Specifically, at 53 minutes he put land in between.

Campaña assisted Miramón, who crossed with his right to beat Remiro and warn the people of San Sebastian. Then came the expected response and the carousel of chances for the Basques who found the prize at 66 minutes. Silva headed in a chopped cross from Gorosabel and gave wings to a Real team that dreamed of victory.

However, the game went crazy with a disallowed goal from Roger and it changed definitively with four minutes to go with an action by Diego Rico -precisely- on the Blaugrana striker that was signaled as a penalty.

Despite the controversy, Melero finished in the 11 meters, accepting a responsibility that he executed perfectly. A victory that leaves them a stone’s throw away from permanence and that prevents Real from approaching the Europa League position or even the Champions League.
