JIM: Luck was on our side

Levante boss Juan Ignacio Martinez has conceded that his team's 2-1 win over Real Valladolid was a 'very important' one.

A late own-goal from Antonio Rukavina gave the Granotes the three points at Ciutat de Valencia, but the 48-year-old has claimed that either team could have won the game.

“It was an important victory for us,” he told a Press conference. “It is always difficult to win in La Liga and I have to congratulate Real Valladolid for the efforts they made.

“Anyone could have won this game, it just so happened that luck fell on our side.”
