The teenager Ansu Fati scored twice to give Barcelona’s victory over the Levante and narrow the gap to Real Madrid’s La Liga leaders to three points.
The seventeen year old ran clear for the first goal, then shot home from a corner within the penalty area.
Levante got up in the second half, but their pressure didn’t pay until the moment of arrest.
Ruben Rochina’s 25-yard volley had deflected the wrong Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
If Ter Stegen could possibly have done better, the same can be said of the opposite number Aitor Fernandez, who was twice beaten in the legs by Fati.
For both goals, Fati was fed by Lionel Messi, who first chose a superb cross-field ball, then crossed the face of the 18-yard box.
Levante beat Barca’s 3-1 defeat at home in November, but never took a point from Camp Nou.
