The 'granota' team, which have accumulated four consecutive games without winning, defeated Berizzo's team (3-0) at the Ciutat of Lèvante, enlarging the crisis of the 'leones' that already add 13 league matches without victories. 

Levante-Athletic closed the 14th day of LaLiga Santander and both teams came with the same goal: to get three points. The team led by Paco López had not won a single match in November, while the team led by Berizzo needed a victory to get out of the relegation zone. 

The match started with the visitors controlling the ball, while the team from Orriols was waiting to be able to go on the counterattack with Morales and Roger. In the last play of the firs half, Chema scored the 1-0. With the can opened, it was just a matter of deciding what to do with it. And Levante decided to put the spoon till the bottom in the second half.

Athletic got into a hurry and the 'granotas' found the perfect scenario to counterattack with great danger. Campaña and Roger scored the second and the third goles of the match. With the match closed, Paco López gave two minutes to Borja Mayoral, who jumped into the field in the 88'. 

With this victory, Levante return to European zone with 21 points. They will face Lugo on Thursday at the Ciutat de València, for the return of Copa del Rey (round 1/32).
