Barcelona lose unbeaten record in La Liga despite Coutinho hat-trick

Champions Barcelona hopes of ending the 2017-18 La Liga campaign unbeaten have finished courtesy of an incredible 5-4 loss at Levante on Sunday night.

The defeat is Barcelona’s first in the league since April 2017, with a hat-trick from Emmanuel Boateng helping Levante make it eight wins from their last 10 top-flight matches.


Levante opened the scoring after nine minutes when Jose Luis Morales blazed past Yerry Mina and teed up Boateng to blast home from close range.

Two minutes later Enis Bardhi crashed a strike off the post, with Barcelona all at sea at the back, Levante intent on doubling their lead.

Barcelona threw everything at Levante in the final stages as they looked to keep their long unbeaten run in tact, but it was the home side that had the best chance to increase the tally on the Night.
