Match Reports and Highlights: Barcelona vs Levante Match Report and Highlights 3-0
Barcelona vs Levante Match Report : Ansu Fati scored in his first Barcelona appearance in 10 months. To ease pressure on underexposed manager Ronald Koeman in Sunday’s 30th win over Levante at the Camp Nou.
Memphis Depay had given Barça the advantage before Luuk de Jong scored his first goal for the club.
Since arriving from Sevilla on the last day of the summer transfer window, but Ansu stole the show with his cameo 10 minutes.
Barça came into the game with just one in five wins in all competitions. And sources recently said that the club was exploring alternative options to Koeman as a coach.
The hosts were out of the blocks and already leading in the sixth minute. When Memphis converted a penalty after an awkward foul by Levante’s Nemanja Radoja.
Barça took the lead nine minutes later thanks to their Dutch striker De Jong 2-0.
Sergino Dest was key as he led a counterattack and fed De Jong. Who calmly pushed the ball past Levante goalkeeper Aitor Fernández.
The loudest applause of the day, however, was reserved for the 80th minute, when Ansu replaced De Jong.
Despite the feeling of well-being at the Camp Nou with Ansu’s return, Barça owed MarcAndre ter Stegen to maintain their advantage, as he had to make two late stops.
But Ansu, Barça’s new number 10, secured the points with third in added time to evoke an even more enthusiastic response from the fans and stepped out into the crowd to celebrate with his family and friends.
