Messi, Fati Combine To Lift Barcelona To Win Over Levante

Lionel Messi and Ansu Fati have combined to inspire Barcelona to a 2-1 win over Levante at Camp Nou, which moved them back to within 3 points of leaders Real Madrid.
Barca dominated from the start and eventually breached Levante’s defense after half-an-hour when Messi picked out Fati with a defense-splitting pass and the 17-year-old showed impressive composure to slot home.
The same pair combined again less than 2 minutes later with Fati this time firing a low finish through the legs of the keeper, making him the youngest player to score a brace in La Liga history.
However, Barca didn’t manage to keep a clean sheet as Ruben Rochina unleashed a late effort that went-in after hitting Marc Andre Ter Stegen.
Barca will return to Copa Del Rey action on Thursday at Bilbao before heading to Seville to face Setien's former club, Real Betis, in La Liga 3 days later.
