Levante's speed kills Osasuna

Calleri put Osasuna ahead, but just a minute later, Melero tied, a Morales pass, which caused a penalty, assisted Roger's goal and scored the third for Levante.


Osasuna faced her first meeting of the course in her fiefdom. El Sadar, still in full reform, is taking shape. The rojillos who were expecting a game with rhythm, wanted to achieve the first victory at home and for their part, Levante wanted the first victory of the season.

Those of Paco López began by warning of their intentions and in the first minutes they reached the red area with ease, taking advantage of some cons that Osasuna had difficulty controlling, although he was trying to take control of the game.

The rojillos responded with a good play between Torres and Adrián that Vezo saved in extremis. Those from Arrasate were getting more comfortable as the minutes passed, but the game became more blocked. Campaña and Melero won the battle in the center of the field to the double pivot of Osasuna, although the visitors did not create a clear danger. Melero was able to overtake Paco López's men shortly before the break, but once again the play was canceled for offside.

It was the locals who got ahead. Calleri perfectly combed a ball that Torres hooked with his left from outside the area and flawlessly shot to score the one to zero with a very close shot to the post. The joy did not last long because only a minute later Melero established the tie after a good move by Morales on the left wing. With the tie at one, the break came

Already at the restart both teams tried to gain control of the game. Once again Morales, very active, forced Sergio Herrera to show off. Despite Osasuna's desire, it was the Levante who created the most danger. Morales hurt the rojillos and is that the visitors put the locals in trouble, who lived the siege of their goal, with their speed.

Arrasate gave entry to Torró, for the injured Torres and Jony for Adrián, which led to a change of system to go 4-1-4-1. Torró tried with a good shot, which forced Aitor to put out his hand to avoid the goal, as soon as he left.

In the 60th minute, Morales again became the protagonist due to his speed. A center of his ended up in the hands of Navas, within the area. However, Sergio Herrera with a spectacular save, prevented Roger from transforming the penalty. However, the latter was compensated by scoring a few minutes later after Campaign assistance. Levante wanted more and Roger became an assistant this time for Morales to score in the 80th minute. With a blurred Osasuna in the last minutes, Levante deservedly took the three points.

Arrasate: "My team has surprised me for the worse"

Osasuna's coach, Jagoba Arrasate has declared about the Levante victory by 1-3 that his team has surprised him "for the worse" while at the same time being "concerned" about the version shown by los rojillos.

The local team coach has acknowledged at a press conference the superiority shown by Levante, and has accepted that Osasuna has not been at his usual level, so the final result can be deduced from there. Arrasate has highlighted the approach of Levante with five midfielders "to accumulate many people inside" since when Osasuna has hit a physical slump, "they have been very comfortable filtering balls behind us" .

"We cannot compete like this. Every time we play on Sunday at noon I don't know what happens, but we are always far from our best version," the coach stated bluntly before commenting that Levante played "at pleasure" during moments of the second half. The Basque coach has warned that Osasuna must "wake up", since, if he does not improve his performance, "we are going to have it complicated". "We cannot think that we already have a status in the category. We must respect it, be hungry and always play to the limit to have options, and today that has not happened," he explained.

Paco López: "I am proud of how this team faces the games"

The Levante coach, Paco López, said that he feels "proud" of how his players have faced the game "taking into account the rival that we had in front of". "Winning in first class is not easy and doing it in El Sadar, even less so," López replied at a press conference when asked if they had taken the three points from a match that a priori looked to be more complicated.

From the position that Melero has occupied on grass, López commented that "it was a game plan that we had", because Levante knew which field he was coming to and "there are times that it goes well in terms of results and others not so well ". "We try to be a balanced and recognizable team and we continue with this improvement plan," said the winning coach in today's game.

"Today has much merit what Levante has done both with the ball and with the ball itself", in this way the visiting coach has valued the effort made by the players who today have had minutes by the granota team. The coach has answered about the remainder of the transfer period that "there is always the possibility of any movement" and that if there is not "our mission as coaches is to try to make the most of everything we have, but we have to be open to any possibility improvement ".
