The Nervionenses trailed 2-0 at the break, but stormed back in the second half to win 3-2, with goals from Ocampos, En-Nesyri and Rakitic.

In the first half of the first pre-season match, Sevilla FC wanted to keep Levante UD trapped in their half, Granotas were the ones to break the deadlock, shaking off the pressure from Sevilla. A goal apiece from Postigo and Dani Gómez meant that the Nervionenses' dominance was not reflected on the scoreboard.

The first of those goals came after a quarter of an hour, with an unmarked Postigo heading home from a free kick, leaving Vaclík well beaten. Ten minutes later, Dani Gómez broke the Sevilla offside trap, which was effectively on the half way line, and he doubled Levante's lead from the resulting one-on-one chance.

In the second half, barely four minutes into the half, and a whole host of substitutions, Ocampos drilled home from distance, beating Koke for sheer power. Just seconds before, Koke had had to be at his very best, spectacularly tipping away a header from his own teammate Manzanara.

With a new formation at the Pinatar Arena, Lopetegui's men continued to seek for an equaliser. A wonderful long ball from Jordán from the right back position played En-Nesyri clean through on goal, who only had to decide where he wanted to place the ball after Jordán released him. The Moroccan chose to place it low to Koke Vegas's right, comfortably beating him. Sevilla FC were level.

The comeback was complete, it was indeed Rakitic, with the number 10 on his back, who stole clear at the front post to head Jordán's bouncing corner beyond Cárdenas to complete the comeback and secure a win, and also a second assist for the Catalan midfielder. En-Nesyri nearly slid in De Jong for a fourth, but his pass eluded the Dutch striker.
