Levante drew 2-2 with Deportivo on Saturday to build on their victory against Villarreal last weekend. Fede Cartabia and Sidnei put the visitors two up in the first half hour, the first from Andone’s assist, and the second with a header from a Çolak corner. Morales and Jason had brought good saves out of Rubén before that though, and Bardhi got one back before the break with a well struck free kick. With a quarter of an hour to go Morales was sent off for a second bookable offence, but soon afterwards Ivi saved a point with a questionable penalty after the young striker clashed with Juanfran in the area.
