By Omolagba Oluwayemi
Lionel Messi scored the only goal as Barcelona returned to winning ways with victory over struggling Levante BSNsports.com.ng reports.
Martin Braithwaite, Clement Lenglet, Jordi Alba and Antoine Griezmann all had chances but found keeper Aitor Fernandez in inspired form.
But there was little Fernandez could do when Messi struck from an angle after Frenkie de Jong’s assist.
Levante’s best chance fell to Jorge de Frutos, while Marc-Andre ter Stegen denied substitute Son right at the end.
Barca’s fifth league win lifts them two places up the La Liga table to eighth before Wednesday’s home match with leaders Real Sociedad.
