Barca thrashed by Levante but stay on top

La Liga leaders Barcelona suffered third league defeat of the season as they were stunned by Levante who came from behind to svore three goals in seven second-half minutes.

Lionel Messi had put the champions ahead with a 38th-minute penalty following Jorge Miramon’s foul on Nelson Semedo.

Jose Campana levelled for Levante after 60 minutes, before Borja Mayoral completed the turnaround two minutes later and Nemanja Radoja added a third.

The video assistant referee then denied Messi as his side failed to respond.

The Argentine appeared to have scored an excellent solo goal after a determined run, but Antoine Griezmann had strayed offside in the build-up.

However the result did not change the top position of Ernesto Valverde’s side as closest rivals Real Madrid failed to capitalise the chance as they were held to a goalless draw at home by Real Betis.
