Levante routs Athletic Bilbao 3-0 in Spanish league

MADRID (AP) — Levante added to Athletic Bilbao’s struggles with a resounding 3-0 home win in the Spanish league on Monday.

The result extended Athletic’s winless streak in the league to 13 matches and kept the Basque Country club in the relegation zone. Athletic hasn’t won since the first round.

Chema Rodriguez, Jose Campana and Roger Marti scored for Levante, which moved to sixth place after its first victory in five matches in all competitions.

Midfielder Peru Nolaskoain was sent off in the 75th minute after the referee resorted to video review to check on a hard foul committed by the Athletic player. Levante was already up 3-0 when the red card was shown.

Barcelona leads the league by a point from Sevilla.
