Barcelona sent shockwaves through Spanish football in midweek with a 7-0 thrashing of Valencia which caused Manchester United legend Gary Neville a whole host of embarrassment on social media!
Luis Enqrique’s side did not have things as easy in their La Liga trip to Levante, but they could still rely on Luis Suarez to seal them a 2-0 victory which takes them three points clear at the top of the table.
Levante were pushing for a late equaliser when Lionel Messi raced upfield on a stoppage-time counter attack and played in Suarez, who applied a smart finish with the outside of his right boot.
The former Liverpool striker has five goals for the week – he bagged four in the Valencia rout. He has an impressive 20 in 21 league games this season, and 36 in 34 appearances in all competitions.
Messi had a goal disallowed in each half as Barca were made to work hard for a fifth successive league win. They may never have got the breakthrough had it not been for a major slice of fortune.
Levante defender David Navarro turned a Jordi Alba cross into his own net on 22 minutes to give Barcelona the lead, but La Liga’s bottom club should be proud of the fight that they put up.
