Sporting Gijón stay in next to bottom spot after they were held to a 1-1 draw by fellow strugglers Levante. The Asturians could not find the route to goal in the first half even though Diego Costa came up against Reina a couple of times. Sergio almost scored for the visitors though after the break, and with twenty minutes to go Caicedo got on the end of Juanlu's long free kick to squeeze a shot past Juan Pablo on the far post. Eight minutes later Sporting equalised, Eguren heading the ball down past Reina after good work by José Angel. But despite Nacho Novo's best efforts they could do no more, taking their run without a victory to a worrying eight games.
