Las Palmas 0-2 Levante: Hosts dominate but lose out

Levante secured three points against Las Palmas, despite the home side dominating possession. The home side have struggled this season and continue to do so after losing to Valencia based Levante on Sunday afternoon. The Estadio de Gran Canaria was full of optimism for three points but Cheick Doukoure’s opener with twenty minutes remaining cancelled out any chance of that. Las Palmas did dominate proceedings but striker Jonathan Calleri was unfortunate not to get on the score sheet. As the game ran out of time, Jason bagged a second for…
