Michel's late goal gives Levante 1-0 win at Getafe


BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -Miguel "Michel" Alfonso struck from long range three minutes from time to give Levante a 1-0 victory at Getafe on Sunday in the Spanish league.

Getafe had shown more scoring intent at Alfonso Perez coliseum, but Levante's defense held firm until Michel came on as a substitute in the 73rd and hit a looping effort from 25 meters out over the goalkeeper to grab the three points.

It was Levante's first away win after losing its first three outings away from Valencia to start the season.

Atletico Madrid visits Real Sociedad later needing a seventh consecutive victory to stay even on points with league leader Barcelona.

Also, it's: Espanyol vs. Rayo Vallecano, Granada vs. Real Zaragoza, and Osasuna vs. Real Betis.
