Levante, Sevilla in goalless stalemate

Sevilla claimed their first point of the season in La Liga when they played to a 0-0 draw against Levante at the Ciudat de Valencia on Sunday night.

The match failed to live up to expectation as both sides were guilty of wayward shooting, while the goalkeepers were not kept too busy.

The first real chance fell for Coke in the 20th minute but he sent his header over the crossbar, while Sergio Pinto fired wide at the other end five minutes later.

Then in the 27th minute Pedro Rios should have done better when he was put through on the right, but he also failed to hit the target, dragging his shot wide.

The second half saw more of the same with Kevin Gameiro firing wide of goal for Sevilla in the 52nd minute, before Diego Perotti did the same four minutes later.

The only big save of the match came in the 65th minute as Keylor Navas showed strong hands to hold on to an effort from Federico Fazio and that was good enough to earn a point for his side.
