Levante came away from Osasuna with a barely deserved point after being outclassed by their hosts for much of the 1-1 draw at Estadio Reyno de Navarra.

After spurning a glut of chances, Osasuna finally went ahead through Walter Pandiani 18 minutes from time only for Levante to level through Sergio Gonzalez seven minutes later with their first shot on target.

Juanfran might have snatched all the points for the hosts late on but Levante goalkeeper Manuel Reina, as he did for much of the afternoon, stood up to the chance.

The point does little for either side in their bid to climb the standings, with both still flirting with the relegation zone after six games.

Osasuna bossed proceedings from the outset and fired the first warning shot after five minutes when Pandiani worked some space in the area but shanked his effort wide.

Reina was in for a busy afternoon in the Levante goal and was first called into action on 24 minutes, saving from Javier Camunas' drilled effort from the left side of the area.

Eight minutes later the visiting keeper was equal to Fernando Soriano's long-range drive while five minutes before the break he enjoyed his best moment of the half with an instinctive block from Juanfran's powerful effort.

Pandiani might have done better than head over from just six yards after 62 minutes, while Juanfran was again denied by Reina as the game entered its final quarter.

The relief in the stadium was palpable when the ball finally wound up in the Levante net on 72 minutes as Pandiani picked the ball up just outside the area and sent a low shot into the left corner.

But the joy was short-lived for the home supporters, who saw their team pegged back 11 minutes from time when Xisco centred from the right and Sergio took aim from distance with a superb effort beyond Ricardo.

Juanfran carved out one more chance for the hosts to snatch all the points two minutes from full-time but again Reina made the stop as Levante clinched a lucky point on their travels.
