Levante end Barca's unbeaten run with 5-4 win

Levante end Barca

BARCELONA: Barcelona's unbeaten run came to an end when the Catalans were stunned by Levante, who won 5-4 here on Sunday.

Philippe Coutinho scored a hat-trick, but could not save his team. 

Ernesto Valverde rested Lionel Messi for his team's penultimate match of the campaign but it was a defensive horror-show that allowed Emmanuel Boateng to score three times and Enis Bardhi twice at the City of Valencia Stadium. 

The La Liga and Copa del Rey champions trailed 5-1 after an hour and still came within a whisker of a sensational comeback as Coutinho's second and third goals, and a Luis Suarez penalty, set up a grandstand finish.
