Valencia claim 2-1 derby win over Levante

Valencia:

Spanish champions Valencia extended their unbeaten run to eight matches after second-half strikes from Ruben Baraja and Mista helped them to a 2-1 win over city rivals Levante in the Primera Liga on Saturday. Baraja put Valencia in front when he nodded home 10 minutes after the break and Mista doubled the home side's lead five minutes later after his close-range header was controversially ruled to have crossed the line. Levante substitute Edwin Congo made for an exciting finish when he pulled a goal back 17 minutes from time. But it was not enough to stop Valencia claiming the honours in the first league derby between the teams in 40 years. (AP)
