There were barely 180 seconds left that, if it happened as they were doing in the last minutes, the game was going to end and Morales was going to close a week of full happiness, renovation included. Nevertheless, appeared by the City the antihero Roberto Soldado. The Valencian fell a ball well fought by Antonio Puertas, in 92 ‘, and la nailed head to the corner of Aitor’s goal.
El Soldado snuck into El Comandante’s party. Until that moment, Morales had exhibited his exuberance with speed and goal and the Levante rounded off its fantastic week. Framework in the first part with a shot next to the stick. Framework in the second tto complete a great team play, which he himself had started, and invalidating Kenedy’s goal.
That it was the day of the Commander was known very soon. Without going any further after a race to the right that put the heart of the small area, where Roger Martí lives. The striker finished with a spur but Rui Silva stopped. To the second, with the roles changed, Morales celebrated his renewal with a goal. Miramón centers, Roger persists with the central and a loose ball, in the area, con Morales arriving in mid-flight… goal.
However, Kenedy was unwilling for the protagonist to embrace glory so easily. First he had it, a pass from Luis García, but he crashed with Aitor. It wasn’t like that in ’43. A bad clearance by Miramón fell on the feet of the clairvoyant Molina who returned to put it first Kenedy. And there yes. I do not doubt. He shot Aitor with a cross shot.
After the break, Diego moved token and the entrance of Machís decided the duel in favor of Granada. The Venezuelan and Luis Suárez threatened Aitor but fEu Morales, with one of his usual claws, who hit the target again. Granada was on the canvas. Roger and Son had the option of sentencing the duel. But they left him alive. And Soldier rescued a point in the extension for the Nasrids.

Paco López: “We have not known how to kill the game”
Tie: “To summarize it quickly, in the moments that we had to kill the game we have not done it and they have scored the tying goal with three centrals. Just as the other day we won in the last minute, today they tied us. Football is like that” .
Cup Rival: “The three remaining teams were very powerful. They came from winning the Super Cup, to Madrid and Barça, we know that it is going to be a very difficult and very exciting challenge. Athletic is a great team and in that sense we did not care because there are three of them teams with great potential “.
Morales: “We are going to wait to assess the injury if it exists. He thinks it is an overload, but it is his feeling. We are going to see how it evolves and what the medical services tell us.”
Three centrals: “Obviously the three center-backs do it to put more people back. They had put Germán as a center forward, in addition to everything they had, and it was common sense. I am annoyed because it comes from one of our actions, we lose it, so many have happened things in that play … It can’t be blamed at the last minute. There are a lot of things. We are not going to keep Soldier’s last shot. That play should be over much earlier. But we will learn from it. “
Of Fruits: “We try to make changes so that they contribute, we wanted De Frutos to give us freshness and speed. The game has changed us. Dani and Son have also given us freshness. I have been saying it very often: today changes are fundamental, they enter five more and they help to change games. You are annoyed by how they tied, because you had it to kill him. But cold, having 27 points at this point and in the Cup semifinals we would all sign. This does not stop and the past for good or It’s not good for bad, you have to live in the present. But you have to assess what the team does.
Fantastic week: “It is clear. The results are not going to make us dizzy. We know the way. In the League we want to continue adding, if it can be three at a time better. We always think about adding, without focusing on the classification. The classification can be seen on matchday 38. We have a very important challenge and we are going to fight it to the last ounce of strength. We are going to do it all together. We know that winning matches in the First Division is tremendously difficult. As you push your chest out … We are not going to allow let that happen. “
