Law in awe of Levante

Published 1 Comments

Levante make their European debut at Fir Park on Thursday night but Motherwell midfielder Nicky Law is not fooled by their lack of experience on the continental stage.

While Motherwell were surprise entrants in the Champions League qualifiers, the Valencia-based club were making waves of their own in Spain with their best season of all time. Levante topped La Liga in late October after a seven-game winning streak and also beat Real Madrid before just missing out on the Champions League with a sixth-placed finish.

They have kept the bulk of their team for the Europa League play-off, and Law said: "They were quite similar to ourselves last year and maybe over-achieved a bit. But they had a good result at the weekend, 1-1 at home to Atletico Madrid, the team that won this tournament last season. That tells you their quality but we feel we can do well here against any team."
