The first half was pretty sloppy and non-clicking, but we had the possession and the determination to score.
In the second half, FCB came back out with fire. In the 50th minute, Messi finds Bartra and BOOM! Opener! Six minutes later, Neymar doubles the lead. His volley is saved by Rubén, but Neymar squeezes the rebound past the goalie for the second goal. Then Angel Trujillo stupidly fouls Neymar inside the box and the Ref points to the spot: penalty. Leo steps up and converted it for our 3rd.
Levante gets one back through Victor Casedesus and ter Stegen was guilty of making a defensive error. I know goalie make mistakes and I have a soft spot for them, but it was a schoolboy error. Zouhair Feddal pulls Leo by the shirt in the area and it’s another penalty, but Leo misses this one.
He soon atones for it in the 90th minute. He shimmies, he shakes, he fakes, he shoots, he scores! Vintage Leo! I love how he draws the defenders to him like a magnet before delivering the final and lethal blow.
4-1 and FCB continue their perfect start to the Liga.
