FC Barcelona 3-0 Levante
Objectives: Dembélé (30and31and) and Messi (54and).
The small initial handicap was just a detail for FC Barcelona.
Malgeated against Levante in the first leg (2-1), Barca went into roller coaster mode for the game back at the Camp Nou. After a quarter of an hour of warm-up, Lionel Messi tries several times to beat Aitor Fernández, but the goalkeeper responds with two parades of class. At ease in his combinations with Ousmane Dembélé, The flea will offer two successive opportunities to his French helper who will lead to two goals, one by one, lucky (30and, 1-0), the other all in speed and dribble (31and, 2-0). Caught in the Storm BlaugranaRaise, however, preserves suspense in the range.
The second act starts at the same pace, with Barça eager to protect themselves from a possible visiting goal. In an action initiated by Dembélé, Nelson Semedo runs to the right side and serves Messi in the area by the third Catalan goal (54and3-0). The Granotes still suffer the attacks of Barcelona. Coming into play, Luis Suarez tries to add his name to the list of gunners for a smart lob, but Fernandez out of a nice tap and avoids defeat is heavier.
Qualified for the quarterfinals, Barça are still in contention to reach their goal of the season: a C1 hat-trick championship. Only that.
