Levante pulled off an incredible triple save versus Barcelona & Lionel Messi last night
- January 20, 2014
What a weekend for Real Madrid!
Their 5-0 rout at Betis was followed up by an exceptional Sunday that saw both their title rivals drop points.
Hence the Marca front page below – “One point!” – which is what separates Los Blancos from their two rivals, who have both now drawn their last two games.
Barcelona’s draw at Levante wasn’t the hugest surprise – even if a draw in La Liga for the Catalans is treated like a defeat.
Levante away is a difficult fixture and Barcelona had some big chances, including the one above.
Goalkeeper Leilor Navas made two huge saves from Lionel Messi, albeit the second one was offside, meaning the second save by Juanfran was massive.
A big moment in the game and possibly the La Liga season.
