Barça is deburred three tens - and wins harmonics
After 1: 1 in Frankfurt, Xavi had no great desire for experiments, gave before the second leg against the Eintracht mainly his two young star in midfield (Pedri and Gavi) for the time being a breather. At the front, Dembelé was allowed to start beside Aubameyang and Ferran Torres.
- Garcia rescues on the line - Aubameyang suddenly to the spot
- Xavis Joker take great influence
- Champions League qualification is approaching
But those who have a clear affair of Tables 19. had expected, was a better taught. Levante, which had brought four of possible six points at the last two guest matches Barcelona's four (3: 3 and 3: 1), played free. After not even 30 seconds, Morales had a first good opportunity because Routinier Dani Alves had made a bushing mistake.
Barça presented itself similarly to the long distances in Frankfurt last Thursday and offered defensively significantly more than offensive. Symptomatic that was initiated the best chance of the guests before the break of Keeper Ter Stegen by Bärenstarkem flat tail - Ferran Torres closed in the penalty area but too central (21.).
Garcia rescues on the line - Aubameyang suddenly to the spot
Shortly thereafter, it would have to stand 1: 0 for Levant, but after Morales had dilated the passive Dani Alves and Araujo, Ter Stegen was strongly in the shot - and Garcia rescued the direction gate-dried ball centimeter in front of the line (26th).
After change, the game had a significantly higher entertainment value and brought five goals. But in turn: After Ferran Torres had initially awarded the best barça chance by head (49.), Levante got a penalty after a stupid foul of Dani Alves. Morales converted this safely (52.), four minutes later - Garcia stopped a hand game - but no second time.
A momentous decision, because the mischief of Roger's Stegen had brought the corner - let the game tilt. Dembelé found a little later with a butter-soft flank the to date invisible Aubameyang, which manually made in the right corner (59.).
Xavis Joker take great influence
Shortly thereafter, the game - and thus also the game course - was on the head: the GAVI and Pedri replaced by Xavi after the second Levante penalmeter made in conjunction with 2: 1 (63.). But the hosts did not give up and tried everything further. And because Barcelona indeed caused a third penalmeter, it was 93 draw in minute: Joker Lenglet stepped on his opponent for two minutes after the interlocking, which Melero used for 2: 2.
The Crunch Time led both counterparties with open visor. Levanta threw everything forward, but was punished in the detention time: Luuk de Jong, another Xavi-Joker, was served by Jordi Alba model valid, whereupon the former Gladbacher hit the short corner (90. + 2).
Champions League qualification is approaching
