Super Eagles winger, Moses Simon has backed his Spanish club Levante to bounce back stronger from Sunday’s 2-1 home loss to Real Madrid, reports completesports.com
Levante dominated the game, but were undone by a ludicrous decision that called into question the whole VAR system following an outrageous dive that turned the game in Madrid’s favour.
Karim Benzema opened scoring for Madrid from the spot two minutes before the break after Enis Bardhi deliberately handled the ball inside the box.
Roger Marti levelled scores for the host on the hour mark after he was set up by Jose Luis Morales.
However, Gareth Bale controversial penalty awarded after Casemiro went down down in the box 12 minutes from time gave Madrid all three points in the game.
“Thank God for everything, we will be stronger #,”Simon tweeted.
Simon has now started Levante’s last two league games following his first start of the campaign against Celta Vigo last weekend.
Madrid finished the game with 10 men as Nacho picked up his second yellow card in the 86th minute for a foul on Raphael Dwamena, but the visitors held on to collect all three points against a Levante team who ended with 11 men but saw Rochina, who was sitting on the bench, sent off late on following a discussion with the referee.
Levante will attempt to return to winning ways in the league when they travel to Leganes on March 4.
