FULL-TIME Levante 5-4 Barcelona: Barça could not complete one of the wildest comebacks of all time, and the unbeaten streak is over. This team will not be known as the Barça Invincibles, and that’s really sad after going 36 games without a loss.


GOAL! Levante 5-4 Barcelona (Suárez 71’): SUÁREZ SCORES A PENALTY! NO WAY! WE’RE JUST ONE GOAL AWAY FROM THE COMEBACK! UNBELIEVABLE!


GOAL! Levante 5-3 Barcelona (Coutinho 64’): COUTINHO HAT-TRICK! WE ARE DEFINITELY COMING BACK!!!


GOAL! Levante 5-2 Barcelona (Coutinho 59’): THE COMEBACK IS ON! PHILIPPE COUTINHO SCORES AND WE ARE GOING FOR A 6-5 WIN!!!!


GOAL, Levante 5-1 Barcelona (Bardhi 56’): Manita for Levante. You have got to be kidding me.


GOAL, Levante 4-1 Barcelona (Boateng 49’): Boateng hat-trick. Unbeaten streak over. Wow.


GOAL, Levante 3-1 Barcelona (Bardhi 46’): Second half starts with Bardhi scoring a screamer from outside the box to give Levante a two-goal lead once again. Great job, lads!


HALF-TIME, Levante 2-1 Barcelona: We played like crap for 40 of the 45 minutes, and we’re lucky to be down just one goal and still have a realistic chance to win. Let’s just improve in the second half, please.


GOAL! Levante 2-1 Barcelona (Coutinho 38’): WE’RE BACK IN IT! Wonderful piece of play between Luis Suárez, Gerard Piqué (!!!!!!!!!) and Philippe Coutinho, and the Brazilian fires home one of his classic long-range strikes.


GOAL, Levante 2-0 Barcelona (Boateng 30’): We’ve been horrible since conceding, Thomas Vermaelen got injured again, and now Boateng has a brace. Yay.


GOAL, Levante 1-0 Barcelona (Boateng 9’): Barça have made a fantastic start, and yet it’s Levante that go ahead thanks to a phenomenal run through the defense and a perfect short cross to Emmanuel Boateng for the opener. Ter Stegen almost got to the ball, but it was too late.


KICKOFF! Levante 0-0 Barcelona: Don’t give me a heart attack, boys! Let’s stay unbeaten.

Matchday Thread Rules

We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:

Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, no swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do will be warned, and those who post links will be banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.
