Levante coach Juan Ignacio Martínez finally got his first win over Valencia at the seventh attempt, the "Granotas" beating their city neighbours 1-0 in a derby match which kicked off at Sunday lunchtime. The visitors looked the better side early on, with Munúa having to save from Jonas and Tino Costa, and Soldado and Jonas both failing to hit the target. But with twenty minutes on the clock Barkero struck a shot just wide at the other end, and a minute later Martins controlled a long Munúa clearance on his chest before firing a first time volley in to the roof of the net. After that Munúa had little to do, and only a couple of great saves by Guaita from El Zhar and Pedro Ríos prevented any further damage. Bragging rights for once though for Levante, who move above their larger rivals in the table.
