Real Sociedad’s scoring drought reached three games when Malaga held the Basque club to a 0—0 draw at home, while Levante rallied to a 2-2 draw at 10—man Almeria in the Spanish league on Saturday.

Sociedad, which lost its Champions League group opener on Tuesday, increased its winless run in the domestic competition to four rounds.

Almeria looked set to get its first win after Jesus “Suso” Fernandez earned a penalty kick converted by Jose “Verza” Garcia in first—half injury time before Suso added a second goal from long range in the 51st.

But the match took a dramatic swing when Levante defender Juanfran Garcia made up for his earlier penalty by drawing back-to-back yellow cards from Christian Fernandez.

The results: Almeria 2 (Verza 45+3-pen, Suso 51) drew with Levante 2 (Nabil El Zhar 55-pen, Diop 60); Real Sociedad 0 drew with Malaga 0. On Friday: Osasuna 2 (Armenteros 16, Riera 48) bt Elche 1 (Albàcar 88-pen). — Agencies
