Barcelona’s Dream Of Winning The La Liga Title In An Unbeaten Run Completely Destroyed By Levanté

Barcelona’s bid to complete an unbeaten LaLiga season capitulated in astonishing circumstances as Ernesto Valverde’s champions collapsed to a 5-4 defeat at Levante.

Unheralded Ghanaian forward Emmanuel Boateng was the hero for home side as he doubled his tally of goals in Spain’s top flight with a hat-trick.

Boateng’s initial first-half strikes were pegged back by Philippe Coutinho but an often wretched Barcelona showing – without the rested Lionel Messi – collapsed into all-out defensive shambles after half-time.

Enis Bardhi, who hit the post in between Levante’s first two goals, found a pair of sublime finishes amid the chaos and Boateng making a claim for the matchball.

Coutinho led the Barca fightback by completing a treble of his own and Luis Suarez’s 71st-minute penalty had Paco Lopez’s men on unsteady legs.

Suarez missed a glorious chance to equalise and Levante full-back Antonio Luna almost put through his own goal but the invincible dream perished at a raucous Ciutat de Valencia.
