MADRID (AP) — Levante defeated Sevilla 2-1 in the Spanish league on Friday, practically securing its spot in the first division next season.
Levante opened a 12-point gap to the first team inside the relegation zone, Clarence Seedorf's Deportivo La Coruna, which hosts leader Barcelona on Sunday.
There will be three matches left after this weekend's matches.
Roger and Jose Luis Morales each scored to give Levante its fourth win in five matches.
Sevilla, which stayed in seventh place and in danger of missing on a Europa League spot next season, got on the board with Carlos Fernandez.
