Levante’s Campana downs Las Palmas

A last-minute strike from Jose Campana clinched a dramatic victory for nine-man Levante at home to relegation rivals Las Palmas.

Coke gave the hosts the lead in the 35th minute but it was cancelled out five minutes after half-time by David Garcia.

Las Palmas found themselves with a man advantage fives minutes from time when Coke was shown a second yellow card, giving Los Amarillos hope they could secure a late victory.

But it was Levante who found the winner two minutes into stoppage time through former Crystal Palace midfielder Campana, and there was still time for Ruben Rochina to be sent off.

The result moved Levante 10 points ahead of their opponents and eight clear of the bottom three, as they looked to guarantee safety and condemn the Canary Islanders – along with Deportivo and Malaga – to relegation.
