Two early strikes from Valdo Lopes and Arouna Kone helped Levante climb up to fourth place in La Liga and a Champions League qualification slot defeating Atletico Madrid 2-0 in the Spanish league on Sunday.
Valdo Lopes opened the account for Levante a minute in when he headed Jose Barkero’s cross off the post to find the net.
Arouna Kone doubled the lead in the 10th when he converted Barkero’s free kick past the goalkeeper with a header. This is his 12th goal of the season.
With this win, Levante now has 48 points and are one point behind third place Valencia.
