After Barcelona Won 1-0, See How The Table Looks Like

Barcelona Star Man Lionel Messi netted the only goal as the Catalan Giants returned to winning ways with win over Levante.

Denmark striker Martin Braithwaite, France international Clement Lenglet, Spain international Jordi Alba and Antoine Griezmann all had opportunities but found Levante goalkeeper Aitor Fernandez in inspired form.

But there was little Fernandez could do when Argentina International Lionel Messi struck from an angle after Barcelona Midfieder Frenkie de Jong's assist.

Levante's best opportunity fell to Jorge de Frutos, while Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen stopped the substitute Son right at the end.

Barcelona fifth league victory lifts them 2 spots up the La Liga table to 8th before Wednesday's home game with League leaders Real Sociedad (20:00 GMT).

Lionel Messi's cool finish was greeted with relief by his Barcelona team-mate after a bad week for the Spanish Giants.

They followed up a surprise loss at Cadiz last weekend with a 3-0 home setback to the Old lady in the Uefa Champions League.

That loss to Juventus means Barca will be unseeded when the draw for the round of 16 of the Uefa Champions League is made on Monday.

On Sunday, Levante were on course for a draw after Fernandez made a string of fine saves.

The Levante goal keeper did well to push Antoine Griezmann's header away before Lenglet blazed a great opportunity over the bar.

Lionel Messi struck for the 8th time this campaign, to leave Levante 18th on the log, 2 points from safety.
