MALAGA, Spain – Goalkeeper Roberto Jimenez Gago’s save in stoppage time against Levante striker Nacho allowed Malaga to hang on for a 0-0 draw on Friday.
The hosts had more in the way of chances in the first half, but neither side was impressive in front of the 20,000 spectators at La Rosaleda.
While Malaga was livelier in the second half, their skill was not equal to their enthusiasm and they never really threatened the Levante goal.
The best scoring opportunity of the night came after the end of the 90 minutes and Roberto dashed Levante’s hopes of coming away with all three points.
The outcome leaves Levante with 16 points from 14 matches, enough for the 14th spot in La Liga. Malaga, with just eight points, is in 18th.
