Levante wins 3-0 at Sporting to move off bottom of Spanish league


BARCELONA, Spain — Deyverson scored twice in Levante's 3-0 win at Sporting Gijon to move the team off the bottom of the Spanish league on Sunday.

The Brazilian opened the scoring in the 18th minute and added another just before halftime after Zouhair Feddal had doubled the lead in the 27th.

It was Levante's first win in three matches under new coach Joan Ferrer.

Later Sunday, Atletico Madrid seeks a win at Real Betis to move ahead of crosstown rival Real Madrid and take over second place after leader Barcelona routed Madrid 4-0 on Saturday.

Villarreal also hosts Eibar, while Athletic Bilbao visits Granada.
