Ray seal victory at Levante



Rayo Vallecano scored two long-range goals to deal Levante their first away loss in six rounds of the Spanish league with a 3-0 win on Thursday.

Rayo dominated possession in the first half, but Levante were firm in defense with Papakouly Diop patrolling the midfield and providing their best chance when he fired into the side netting.

Rayo broke through in the 59th when left back Ignacio Martinez unleashed a left-footed strike that curled outward to fool goalkeeper Gustavo Munua before going in off the post.

Forward Francisco "Piti" Medina sealed Rayo's second straight win with a perfectly struck free kick 10 minutes from time.

Franco Vazquez then added Rayo's third in injury time.
