Barcelona’s winning streak continued at Levante even though Xavi’s side gave away three penalties and came up against a home side willing to throw pretty much everything at the Catalans.
Three penalties in a game is pretty unheard of but happened at Levante, just over a week after Real Madrid were awarded a hat-trick of spot-kicks against Celta Vigo in La Liga.Conspiracy theorists will have a field day with that one.
Barca can’t really have too many complaints about either spot-kick but did brilliantly well to still take all three points on a ground where they have struggled in the past.
Again Xavi’s men had to come from behind, dig in and show some real fighting spirit, and again they came up trumps.
