Barcelona defeated Levante by 3-0

Ansu Fati came off the bench late on to score and Luuk de Jong struck his first Barcelona goal in a comfortable win over Levante.

Ansu Fati marked his return with a brilliant late goal and Luuk de Jong opened his Barcelona account in a 3-0 LaLiga defeat of Levante.

It was the sort of fairytale script Lionel Messi used to write every week and it vanished the gloom and doom that has hung over the club for the last two weeks.

A huge roar had gone up when he started warming up late in the second half, an even bigger roar went up when he came on at minute 81 and almost immediately won a penalty.

And then when he shook off Levante defender Jorge Miramon and beat Aitor Fernandez, the net bulged and the old stadium shook.

Koeman’s countrymen Memphis De Jong and Luuk de Jong helped the boss out with two early goals and teenager Gavi played like Xavi in midfield before Fati came on wearing the number 10 shirt he promised to wear post- Messi after he was asked by the club captains.

Memphis went for the Levante jugular early on and drew first blood.

He ran between Jorge de Frutos and Jorge Miramon and the next obstacle in his path was Nemanja Radoja who tripped him.

From no run-up Memphis sent the keeper the wrong way and buried his spot kick. That was with six minutes on the clock.

On minute 10 Messi was remembered by supporters inside the Camp Nou but with chants of ‘F***ing PSG! F***ing PSG!’.

On 14 minutes it was 2-0 again Memphis was involved. He sent Dest down the left and the full-back’s pass put Luuk de Jong clear to score his first goal for Barcelona.

The Dutch internationals had given the team the perfect platform and it was left to the homegrown talent to shine on it.
