Super Eagles winger Moses Simon grabbed an assist as Levante thrashed Uche Agbo’s Rayo Vallecano 4-1 in their LaLiga clash at the Estadio Ciudad de Valencia on Saturday, reports Completesports.com.
The win boosted Levante’s hopes of escaping the drop with two games remaining before the end of the campaign.
Simon replaced Borja Mayoral 11 minutes from time and provided the assist for Ernis Bardhi fourth goal.
Jose Angel Campana, Ruben Vezo and David Jason scored the other goals for Levante.
Alvaro Garcia got Rayo Vallecano’s only goal of the game. The visitors finished the game with 10-men after Andri Embarba was sent off eight minutes from time.
Uche Agbo who started the game for Rayo Vallecano was replaced by Alvaro Medran in the 28th minute.
The game was Simon’s 18th league appearance for Levante this season and he has scored only one goal.
Agbo who is on loan at Rayo Vallecano from Belgian club Standard Liege has made just four appearance for the club following his January arrival.
Levante sit in 16th position in the Laliga table with 37 points from 36 games, while Rayo Vallecano who have garnered 31 points from the same number of matches now face a difficult battle to escape the drop.
