At the venue of Levante, in the first half, Barcelona was not in their best form or we can say that they failed to show their regular form though all top-rated players were in the squad. Their attacking division consisted of Messi-Suarez-Griezmann but it could not help. As usual, they possessed the ball most of the time and also dominated the ground. They planned to make the attack by keeping their defense secure. In the 32nd minute of the game, Barcelona got their first important chance. Messi’s pass found the French striker Griezmann but the French forward’s Conakry shot could not escape the goalkeeper.
However, six minutes later, with a successful spot-kick, Lionel Messi led the Catalan club ahead. Nelson Semedo went into the box but was fouled there. So, the Spanish giants got a penalty. Including the goal, the Argentine striker scored 22 goals against Levante by playing 20 matches.
