Deportivo de la Coruña 0- Levante 2: Levante lies fourth
La jornada 12 of the League faced Deportivo de la Coruña, a classic in low hours, against Levante, one of the roosters of the category in the last two seasons. Stage, another league classic, Riazor.
Oltra local technician, Valencian and also a former player and former coach of Levante, JIM was measured, granota coach who was serving today 50 matches in the Liga BBVA. The first minutes were marked more by the problems suffered by Depor in his squad than by the football exhibited on the pitch.. Levante presented the unexpected loss of Pape Diop, for an unexpected FIFA sanction for not going to Niger with his team, the Senegalese.
At minute six, Marchena was going to relapse in his injury, in the thirteenth minute it was going to be Ze Castro who was injured, forcing Oltra to make two changes in the first thirteen minutes, undoubtedly an important setback for the Galician team.
The rest of the first part passed without much news, only a small controversy for a foul by Juanlu who was going to report a couple of cards to Depor seemed to remind us that a League game was being played. There were few occasions and the game was tedious. The game ran to zero to zero at the end of the first 45 minutes, when Obafemi Martins, he was going to use his speed to score the 0-1, after circumventing Aranzubia and taking advantage of the oversight of the two centrals of circumstances.
The second part, It started as always when Levante plays away from home, with the local team overturned on the Munúa gate and with the granotas waiting to go against. In minute eight of the second part, the party was going to overturn. Pedro Lopez, was going to commit a clear hand that was going to cost a penalty for Depor. Penalty and expulsion of the granota side, he was going to leave his team almost 35 minutes in inferiority.
Ricky was going to shoot the penalty kick and send the ball to the third amphitheater, being the second penalty that Levante did not fit in two consecutive days. In the thirteenth minute of the second half, Valerón was going to invent a pass so that Ricky could go toe-to-toe against Munúa that the Charrúa was going to solve with an excellent stop.
The party passed, Ricky kept throwing balls to the third amphitheater, el Levante, with ten, tried to tie the goal advantage until the minute 25 of the second part, another against Martins was going to force Aranzubia to make a clear foul on the Nigerian which was going to cost him the second yellow card and the expulsion.
Lo peor, is that Deportivo had already made all three changes, so I had to put a goalkeeper field player. Bergantiños, was going to occupy the sports goal. Levante was going to go from being at a disadvantage to being at a clear advantage.
With both teams with ten, but with the Depor without goalkeeper and the Depor overturned, Munúa was going to make two definitive interventions to save his team. In the minute 36, Barkero, a kicker of the best the League was going to take advantage to score with an accurate shot, to which poor Bergantiños, field player, there was nothing I could do to stop it. El Levante, he managed to get two above.
Munúa, the best of Levante, I was going to make a merit stop to Bodipo's header. El Levante, he followed his, confirming that it is one of the most difficult teams in the League and that you have to sweat blood to beat them. In a clear counter between Juanfran and Ángel, Levante was going to forgive the third. With Ricky's umpteenth shot at the third amphitheater, the party was going to die.
Victory of a Levante that confirms that it is one of the best teams in the League and that places the Valencian team fourth in the classification table and puts in serious trouble a Deportivo that today was going to meet all the misfortunes that a soccer team can be found and that perhaps did not deserve such punishment.
