Real Sociedad drop home points to Levante

By AAP Newswire

Real Sociedad and Levante have shared the points in their La Liga clash in Anoeta.

The home side took the lead when former Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj scored on 27 minutes with a close-range finish from a Theo Hernandez cross.

But with 11 minutes left 21-year-old Borja Mayoral, on loan from Real Madrid, got the equaliser from a well-worked corner.

Januzaj almost added a second for La Real five minutes after Januzaj but his free-kick was just too high.

Mikel Oyarzabal and Sandro Ramirez missed presentable chances to add to the lead, while Mayoral was denied an equaliser by a point-blank save from Geronimo Rulli just after the hour mark.

Mayoral crashed in the leveller when he met Jose Campana's low corner 10 yards out and drilled the ball first time inside the near post.

The hosts pushed for a winner but Ander Guevara and Hernandez could not convert opportunities in stoppage time.

The 1-1 result means Real Sociedad stay ninth and Levante are 15th, six points clear of the relegation places.
