I just saw this news about Levante's 0-4 loss to Deportivo recently. I saw the match highlights and remember that Levante's defense was really awful. I dont follow them or the league enough to have an opinion. But I wonder since so many European football leagues in general have a history of match fixing, I wonder does it exist or has happened in Spain? Is so, its quite rare or common to hear or see reported?

I used to think top level leagues and tournaments are probably very difficult to fix, but as time goes, it seems not that impossible. This example is Levante who seem to be struggling while Deportivo obviously wanting to avoid relegation.

match fixing is involved in every sport there is no way to find out what, when and where...

things like Spot-fixing are pretty much impossible to catch, simple things like time of throw-in, tackle, pass etc can all be fixed

Yep. Claus Lundekvam from my country, Norway, talked about how easy it was to bet money on who gets the first throw-ins etc, and that was what he was willing to admit from his time in the PL. It was very easy for the players to agree on, and if you think about a throw in, it doesnt seem so harmful, right? Thats when it starts getting dangerous.

But take this example, as always, there are less risks if u are able to buy more players involved, if not, there is always risks that the pure randomness and other players influencing the result and incidents not to go your way as bet on. It is just so random to pull it off it seems . But then im sure its an agreement, if the outcome is successful everyone gains or something. If not, our nobody gains and the arranger losses whatever he needs to bet or initiate the plan.
