  • Lerma did his best to hide from the referee, jogging back into the penalty area among the crowd of bodies to try and avoid further discipline, butt he referee was able to seek him out.

  • JUST LIKE THAT, BARCELONA LEAD! Who else but Lionel Messi? It's that combination again, too. Messi dinks a ball over the top for Alba on the left, who immediately pulls back a return pass and Messi finishes brilliantly, sending his first-time volley off the far post and in!

  • Sloppy! Levante architects of their own downfall here as a careless giveaway affords Barcelona a chance to break quickly, forcing Sergio Postigo into a rash challenge on Messi just a few yards outside the penalty area. It's one the defender had to make, and he will gladly accept that yellow card.

  • THAT MIGHT DO IT! A stunning ball over the top from Mascherano picks out the run of Roberto, who finds Suarez in the centre with a clever first-time ball. The striker controls with his first touch before blasting a stunning effort off the underside of the bar and in with the second, on the half-volley, to quite possibly put this game to bed!

  • Dembele put in a great shift today and he, along with the coaches and training staff, will have to be happy with what they saw in his return. He's replaced here by Nelson Semedo.

  • Yikes! Yellow cards don't get much clearer than that. Boateng grabs the arm of Semedo and tugs, spinning him around like a rag doll before pulling him to ground. That's one way to stop a break.

  • A WORK OF ART FROM LIONEL MESSI! The Barcelona fans haven't had the most enjoyable second half, so Messi decides to give them something to cheer about! The attacker skips beyond two defenders quite impressively, before driving a no-look pass into the centre for Paulinho, aided by a lovely Suarez dummy, and the Brazilian midfield finishes the simple tap-in.
