(EFE) – Sevilla does not renounce the fight for the title and added a vital victory in the Ciutat de Valéncia by beating Levante 0-1, in a very complete meeting of the Andalusian team, which knew how to counteract the attempts of counterattack of the premises and showed sufficient ambition to take the three points.
Julen Lopetegui presented the same eleven that defeated Real Sociedad last day and his players did not disappoint him in a match in which they knew how to overcome a tough Levante who sold the three points at stake dearly.
Sevilla tried to give the game a lot of dynamism from the start and after eight minutes Joan Jordan was able to open the scoring with a shoe from the edge of the area that Cárdenas touched just enough with one hand to clear the ball off the crossbar.
Levante was very firm in defense with an excellent Malsa in the recovery, although he could not connect any counterattack that put the goalkeeper Bono in trouble, who barely intervened in the first half.
Sevilla dominated and searched harder than their rival for the goal, but could not find a way to surprise the Levantine team, which was very firm in the vicinity of their area.
In the second half, Sevilla put one more gear into the game and very soon took the lead after a ball recovered in the midfield by Suso, who put a ball into space to En Nesyri and he got rid of the goal Cárdenas first in his exit and later a defender to score the first goal of the match.
Paco López reacted immediately, giving entry to the field of José Luis Morales and Rochina seeking a greater offensive role. However, Sevilla well countered the local team’s departures without giving up the attack in search of a second goal that would sentence the clash.
Levante could not sign a shot between the three clubs against a very solid Sevilla that does not give up in the fight for the title in this final stretch of the championship after adding their fourth consecutive victory.
