La Liga: Levante stun Barcelona with three goals in seven minutes

Barcelona fell apart as Levante scored three times in seven second-half minutes to claim a dramatic 3-1 victory over La Liga leaders.

Lionel Messi had put the visitors ahead with a 38th-minute penalty following Jorge Miramon’s foul on Nelson Semedo.

Jose Campana levelled for Levante after 60 minutes, before Borja Mayoral completed the turnaround two minutes later and Nemanja Radoja added a third.

The video assistant referee then denied Messi as his side failed to respond.

The Argentine appeared to have scored an excellent solo goal after a determined run, but Antoine Griezmann had strayed offside in the build-up.
