Karabelas suffers injury as Levante win in Scotland
- Updated: August 24, 2012
Levante’s 2-0 win over Motherwell in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday night was a bittersweet result as the La Liga club lost Nikos Karabelas to injury shortly before half-time in Scotland.
The Greek defender was forced to come off in his side’s 2-0 win over Motherwell on Thursday. The former AEK left-back got the worst of a challenge from Motherwell’s Adam Cummins, forcing him to be replaced after just 40 minutes at Fir Park.
Karabelas was replaced by former PAOK player Nabil El Zhar, who subsequently scored the opening goal in Scotland. Karabelas’ countryman, Theofanis Gekas, who is another summer signing for the Valencia-based club, also started for Levante.
Karabelas is expected to undergo medical examination on Friday when the club returns to Spain. Joining the Granotes this off-season, Karabelas made his debut for the club at the weekend in a 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid and has impressed his new owners thus far.
