On Wednesday, Levante and Atletico Madrid were held to a 1-1 draw at the Ciutat de Valencia. Levante were hoping to get something from this game, following a previous defeat to Osasuna. Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, were looking to extend their winning run after a 2-1 victory against Granada. As the table looks today, Levante and Atletico Madrid currently occupy 11th and 1st spots in the table, with 28 points and 55 points respectively after 2 matches.

Levante started well with, thanks to Enis Bardhi opening the scoring, 17 minutes in. However, their lead was short lived, with an equalizer from a Marcos Llorente in the 37th minute brought Atletico Madrid level, thereby seeing the first half to a 1-1. The second 45 minutes ended with little further action at either end and goalless.

For Levante, Oscar Duarte, Dani Gomez, Son, Ruben Vezo and Ruben Rochina came on for Sime Vrsaljko, Yannick Carrasco, Angel Correa and Koke, and Atletico brought on Geoffrey Kondogbia, Joao Felix, Vitolo and Lucas Torreira for Sime Vrsaljko, Yannick Carrasco, Angel Correa and Koke.

There were bookings for Jorge De Frutos Sebastian from Levante and Saul Niguez, Stefan Savic and Geoffrey Kondogbia for Atletico.

Levante will next travel to Atletico Madrid, while Atletico Madrid will face Levante at home.
