BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -Levante beat Valencia 1-0 in a city derby on Sunday with Obafemi Martins' first-half goal keeping the Spanish club undefeated in four home games this season.

Valencia had the better start but Levante went ahead in the 22nd minute in Valencia when Martins controlled Gustavo Munua's long goal kick with his chest before firing over goalkeeper Vicente Guaita.

Valencia continues to struggle in the Spanish league, remaining winless in four away games.

League leader Barcelona hosts Real Madrid later Sunday looking to increase its eight-point advantage over the defending champion.

Also, it's: Mallorca vs. Granada; Athletic Bilbao vs. Osasuna; and Atletico Madrid vs. Malaga.
