Hércules moved up safely to mid-table after a 3-1 win over regional neighbours Levante in the Rico Pérez stadium. Birthday boy Nelson Valdez opened the scoring for the locals five minutes before the interval after Reina couldn't hold on to Thomert's header, but just a minute later substitute Rubén Suárez poked home the equaliser from Xisco Nadal's cross. Trézéguet restored the lead though with just over an hour on the clock after Reina pushed out an effort from Tiago Gomes, and five minutes after that Valdez headed in a cross from Tote for his second of the evening.
