Levante and Getafe played out a 1-1 draw on Monday night in a result which did little to enhance either side's Primera Division survival prospects.

Abdoul Yoda put the visitors in front 11 minutes into the second half at the Estadi Ciutat de Valencia.

But Rafael Martins, who returned from a three-month injury lay-off last Friday, struck an equaliser 19 minutes from time.

Getafe have now failed to win in four matches in La Liga, while Levante have won two of their last five.

The hosts are three points above the relegation zone in 15th, with the visitors two points and three places better off.

Getafe eased to a 3-0 victory over Eibar in the Copa del Rey on Friday, but had suffered back-to-back defeats in the league beforehand.

The visitors began well, with Angel Lafita striking the post with an effort from the edge of the area.

Levante boss Lucas Alcaraz, who took over in late October, had seen his side go on a three-match unbeaten run before losing at Espanyol last week and the hosts responded well.

David Navarro headed wide and Jose Luis Morales shot wide before having a shot blocked.

Getafe were forced into a change when Sergio Escudero departed injured midway through the first half and they made another switch at half-time, but took the lead early in the second half.

Yoda drilled a left-footed shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the area.

Levante hit back when Nikos Karabelas crossed and Martins headed in to mark his league return.

He had played 72 minutes of the cup draw with Albacete last Friday.
