Relegation threatened Levante have sealed a vital 1-1 draw away at Celta Vigo in La Liga Monday night action.
Alessio Lisci’s side have enjoyed a slight upturn in form in recent weeks with seven points from their last six league outings.
However, despite a gusty display in Galicia, the visitors remain nine points adrift of top flight safety, with 13 games still to play this season.

The visitors enjoyed the better early chances, with Dani Garcia missing an open goal and Gonzalo Melero scuffing an effort wide of the upright.
But despite a lack of openings, both sides made the most of their one clear cut chance in the second 45, as Franco Cervi headed home Javi Galan’s swerving cross before Roger Marti muscled through to equalise for Levante.
