Quique Setien said Barcelona allowed Levante too many chances during their 2-1 win on Sunday and was unsure why his team lost control of the match.

Two goals from Ansu Fati in the first half put Barcelona in the driving seat, but they allowed Levante to come back into the game in the second half.

The visitors had plenty of chances to score but did not pull one back until stoppage time when Ruben Rochina struck from distance.

Here’s what Setien made of it all:

“I leave happy with a lot of things, not everything evidently because we gave away too many shots, but we had a very good first half which we could have killed the game in. It’s true that we lost control a bit and let up too many chances.

”That worries me, obviously, but we had many chances of our own and we have to give credit for that. It could have been an 8-2 or 8-3.”

Barcelona now face a couple of tricky away matches. They travel to San Mames in the Copa de Rey, where they were beaten on the opening day of the season, and then face a trip to Real Betis in La Liga.
