It wasn’t long ago that Malaga were playing in the Champions League but Thursday night saw them relegated to Segunda Division after a ten-year stay in LaLiga.

The Andalusians started the better of the two sides in their trip to Levante, who had goalkeeper Oier Olazabal to thank for keeping the scores level at half time.

Coming out with the knowledge that a win would not only condemn Malaga but also seemingly confirm their own safety, Levante ramped up the atmosphere at Estadio Ciutat de Valencia with a strong start to the second period.

Jose Campana had an effort saved by Roberto in the opening moments before Coke Andujar’s header flashed wide of the post.

The game turned on its head, Emmanuel Boateng popped up in the 93rd minute to notch the winner, sending Malaga down with five games left to play.
