When Levante hosted Valencia earlier on in the season it was a top of the table clash. But while Marcelino’s team is still up there fighting away, Levante are crashing harder than the Geordie Shore gang after a weekend in Ibiza.
Since the 25th September Levante have only won once. That win came against lowly Las Palmas and this weekend saw them lose to struggling Athletic Club. It meant they dropped below their opponents and slip to 15th in the table, just four points off the relegation zone.
In their last nine losses they’ve scored just five goals but conceded a whopping 18.
A fight for survival was always the realistic aim but fans would’ve hoped to see their strong start last a little bit longer. There is unlikely to be a lot of money available to spend in January either. This means they’ll be desperately hoping that the Christmas break will allow them to recharge their batteries.
