Winless Sevilla held at Levante

la_liga_logoUEFA Europa League holders Sevilla are still looking for their first win of the season after they were held 1-1 at Levante on Friday.

Former Stoke City midfielder Steven N’Zonzi gave the visitors a deserved lead when he curled home his first goal for the Andalusians after just 12 minutes. However, Sevilla failed to turn their dominance into a more commanding lead in the first-half and were made to pay after the break.

Victor Camarasa levelled from close range just before the hour mark after Sevilla goalkeeper Beto had made a fine initial save from Nabil Ghilas. Both sides now have just two points from their opening three Spanish La Liga fixtures.

Seville coach Unai Emery was not happy with his team’s performance saying that Sevilla “won games like these last season” .

“Work still needs to be done. We won games like these last season,” the Coach said after the game.

“We competed collectively, did certain things well and showed great defensive strength, which allowed us to attack.

“We were dominant in the first half, but we’re not satisfied because we needed something more than just our goal.

“Two points aren’t enough. It’s not the start we wanted, but we must be optimistic and give more individually and collectively.”
