He Huesca and Levante signed an insufficient draw for both, anchored in the lower part of the classification, after a duel with hardly any scoring chances that keeps the panorama of both in the competition in question.
The equalized does not satisfy any. The Valencian team is close to relegation and also needed a victory to try to get away from it. But at least, it serves the Levantines to keep a mattress three points away Regarding the Alto Aragonese, who continue to be tied to the red zone where they have spent a large part of the season.
In addition, for the Huesca team the damage is not only quantitative, due to the points that cannot be added that would have been vital, but also moral, due to the circumstance of not being able to impose on another team with which the relegation could be played at the end of season and against which direct confrontations may be the key, something that, however, It is not new because it has already happened with Cádiz, Valladolid or Eibar in El Alcoraz.
The Aragonese team reaffirmed its status as “king of the tie” by adding his tied ninth, results that, as they are not accompanied by triumphs, continue to have him tied to the relegation zone.
Both teams began the match with great pressure on the rival that made the ball barely last on the feet and that possession passed no continuity solution from one to the other.
In that situation, no one was able to step on the area and scare the opponent because there were barely three passes in each action until Jorge de Frutos, in a personal move in the 12th minute, won the baseline and put “the pass of death” but without any partner having accompanied the play. It was the most dangerous action of the visitors in the first 45 minutes.
Although no one was able to break the pressure, the Huesca began to have more of the ball and to push Levante towards their area.
In the 29th minute there was the first local clear shot, by Japanese Shinji Okakazi, who hit Rubén Vezo’s hand and that the referee did not see in the first instance but that was warned by the VAR. The maximum penalty was transformed by Javi Ontiveros, which allowed the Alto Aragonese not to rush into the dominance of the ball that they continued to have against a Valencian team that after the intense effort of the first minutes no longer reached the pressure with the same freshness.
With a thick fog at the beginning of the second half, Paco López’s team had the virtue of drawing their first shot between the three clubs, in 53, through Gonzalo Melero who took advantage of three rebounds in the area after a corner kick to equalize the score but without celebrating it due to his past from Huesca.
Equality reigned after the equalizer but without any danger. The game took place outside the areas and these were safe for the two contenders because nobody stepped on them with danger and that meant that the marker no longer moved.
