February 23, 2015

MADRID (AP) — Levante scored two late goals on Monday to seal a 2-1 league win over fellow strugglers Granada in a heated encounter that saw three players sent-off.

The visitors took the lead when Youssef El-Arabi converted a 13th minute spot kick after Victor Camarasa handled inside the penalty area.

The tempestuous encounter saw Granada pair Adrian Colunga red carded in the 72nd before scorer El-Arabi and Levante’s Ivan Ramis were both dismissed in the 79th.

Camarasa atoned in the 88th with the equalizer following a disastrous clearance from Granada goalkeeper Oier lazabal.

Forward David Barral scored the winner in the fourth-minute of second-half stoppage time to lift the hosts to within one point of safety.

Levante rises to 18th place on 22 points while Granada drops to 19th on 19 points.
