Levante and Sevilla play to a draw

A 1-1 draw would not have been what either Levante or Sevilla would have been hoping for from their Primera Division clash in Valencia on Friday night.

Both teams have had lackluster starts to the new season, claiming just one point from a possible six, and would have been hopeful of picking up a first victory.

Visitors Sevilla made the perfect start after former Stoke midfielder Steven N'Zonzi opened his account for the club with a strike from outside the box in the 12th minute that left Levante keeper Ruben for dead.

Further half-chances would fall to Levante's Jose Mari and Sevilla's Vitolo in the first half, though neither could convert.

In the second half, Levante pushed hard for an equaliser, with Nabil Ghilas and Deyverson both sending shots wide.

They were finally rewarded in the 58th minute when Victor Camarasa produced an accurate header from close range that had the beating of Beto in goal.

Levante always looked the more likely to add a second, but they couldn't find a way past the Sevilla defence and the score remained 1-1 at full-time.
