Levante forge on past Olympiacos

Levante UD provided just enough sparkle on a rainy evening in Piraeus, with Obafemi Martins's header rounding off a 4-0 aggregate success against Olympiacos FC to set up a UEFA Europa League round of 16 meeting with FC Rubin Kazan.

With Juan Ignacio Martínez's tournament debutants showing no sign of their inexperience in European competition, Olympiacos were put off their stride early on when José Barkero's long-range shot clattered the top of the crossbar. Before Olympiacos had a chance to regroup, they went behind on nine minutes, with the unmarked Martins given room in the box to nod Barkero's corner past Roy Carroll.

Left with a vertiginously steep hill to climb, Olympiacos seemed to lack conviction, with their attacks characterised by hurried crosses from the flanks and a lack of creative ideas in midfield. Their best opportunity to equalise came on 18 minutes when Kostas Mitroglou was teed up by Leandro Greco but his left-footed volley flew just wide.
