Levante have taken a point in dramatic fashion against Atletico Madrid.
Reigning champions Atleti have stumbled again to make it three games without a win, drawing at Cuitat de Valencia against a Levante side still without a win this season.
That looked to have been enough for Los Rojiblancos, but after Simeone was sent off for having a word too many to say on the sideline, Levante found a way to take a point and to upset another of the big boys, something they have gained a reputation for doing in recent years.
Las Granotas were given another penalty when the ball ever-so-slightly brushed the arm of Renan Lodi, and Bardhi – who hasn’t played for two months due to injury – scored his second goal, and indeed second penalty, of the game.
The point is a huge one for Levante and their new boss Javier Pereira, while Atleti are now five points behind leaders Real Sociedad, albeit with a game in hand.
