Málaga ended their season with a 1-0 victory over Levante on Friday night, the result taking the Andalusians up to eleventh, just a place behind their opponents in the table. With nothing at stake, both coaches gave a run out to some of their lesser used players, although the locals had the better chances in the first half, Rescaldani and Amrabat both bringing good saves out of Keylor Navas. With an hour on the clock Portillo got what was to prove the only goal of the game, firing an angled shot through a sea of legs after Navas had pushed out a shot by Amrabat. Málaga coach Bernd Schuster managed to get himself sent off for arguing in his last match in charge, and Diop was also red-carded after picking up a second booking with ten minutes to go. Soon afterwards the Andalusians were awarded a penalty when Nagore tripped Juanmi in the area, the players gifting the ball to Casado who was returning from a long injury. Unfortunately for him he blasted the spot-kick over the bar, but that didn’t affect the result, and both teams were able to start their holidays a day earlier than the rest.
