Sergio León presents candidacy for the premiere of the League

Levante beat Villarreal, which closed the preseason with two wins and three losses, with goals from Sergio León and Morales. Alcacer overtook those of Emery.


Still without points at stake, Villarreal-Levante took on a League match. Orriols' team beat Unai Emery's team thanks to goals from Sergio León and José Luis Morales, who turned the score around after Paco Alcácer's opening goal. For their part, the yellows close the preseason with a balance of two victories and three defeats, while the granotas, who remain undefeated, will face Castellón tomorrow.

Despite the significant casualties of both teams, due to internationality or injury, Paco López opted for an eleven that could perfectly start on the first day at Mestalla. Meanwhile, Emery's team, still in testing, was somewhat blurred with the young Jorgensen, Chakla or Baena from the start.

But, from the hand of Dani Parejo, the yellows began ruling the match. However, after the first minutes passed, the game turned into an exchange of blows. Parejo and Pedraza were searching without luck to finish off from the baseline, while Morales and De Frutos tested the young Swedish goalkeeper. The clearest was Alcácer, who failed to beat Aitor Fernández, who continues in a state of grace. But the one from Torrent does not forgive twice, and in a play that the Granotas claimed offside, the Valencian turned a deaf ear to beat the one from Arrasate looking for the top of the goal with a volley. His fourth goal of the preseason.

The game was about scorers and went from the streak of Alcácer to the need of Sergio León, who tied the match by pulling a resource little seen in him, the header, after a great assist from Morales to score his first goal of the preparation of the course and close the first act with tables.

After passing through the changing rooms, both coaches kept their eleven on the pitch. With the start of the competition just around the corner, and Levante with a game tomorrow against Castellón, there was little room for testing. Sergio León, with another apparent attitude, insisted on his head, pressed on the pressure; it looked like someone else.

Without a doubt, the goal is the best medicine for the striker. He more than anyone knows that without Roger, his options to tackle the start of the season go through these games. The 'Comandante', with a home brand started, and with the collaboration of Parejo, beat Jorgensen.

Villarreal tried with the changes, but Levante, with more legs with the entry of the young people in the second half, pulled kilometers and wanted to maintain the result. Fer Niño tried, always attentive in the area and Dani Gómez, in a fleeting return after playing with the U-21, showed good manners at the top during the time he played. Tomorrow against Castellón, the kids, who were left wanting more, will have their chance.
