Rising Ghana star Emmanuel Boateng scored his first ever goal in La Liga on Saturday night – and what a time to get it!
Against Real Madrid, the former Charity Stars striker got the equalizer on which Levante built a solid 2-2 display.
It was the visitors reigning champions who set the tempo from the outset and went a goal in front after 12 minutes through Sergio Ramos, who rose highest to head home a Toni Kroos corner.
It looked only a matter of time before Real doubled their lead but instead, it was Levante who got the second goal of the game as Boateng calmly slid the ball into the bottom corner after the lively Jose Luis Morales had seen his shot parried by Navas.
Madrid scored again after Zidane introduced Isco, who netted on 82 minutes, only for a last-minute goal from substitute Giampaolo Pazzini on his La Liga debut to hand the struggling home side a well-deserved draw at Ciutat de Valencia.
Boateng’s performance was rated 7/10 by ESPN, Sky Sports and Marca. The Ghanaian, who has formerly played for Rio Ave and Moreirense in Portugual, was playing his 13th game for the club, but only his fourth start as he led the line in his first season.
Next up for Levante, who are 17th on the 20-team log, is a local derby against Valencia at the Mestalla next Sunday.
