Levante proved to be a worthy opponent regardless of their low positioning on the table but the last three points the Blaugrana needed left with them back to Catalunya after all.

With that in mind, Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets dropped to the bench while Arturo Vidal and Ousmane Dembélé got their chance from the get-go.
