(November 25, 2012)

Typical absolute, the FC Barcelona, with eleven academy players on the pitch for 60 minutes, has been imposed in the area of Levante, thanks to a terrific second half in which the team scored four goals. All have been the hallmark of Iníesta  author of three assists and a goal from the edge. It was Messi, however, who opened the can with two goals that a little closer to the historical record of Gerd Müller. Cesc Fàbregas was the third scorer of a team that continues to beat records and already leads defending champions Real Madrid, on eleven points. Athletico, rival in three weeks, follows three.

The game was developed as expected. As in the last game between the teams, has been a conceptual battle. FC Barcelona sent from the possession, focusing their attacks on the left wing, where Iníesta and Alba has come repeatedly until the baseline, never finding auctioneer. Levante  tried through speedy counterattacks, with Juanlu and Martins as daggers major offensive. Throughout the first half, however, the best times have come by two defenders, Juanfran and Piqué, in separate auctions corner. Combat zero to rest that has come up with a club formed by eleven academy players after Alves's injury. 

The first time has taken less than two minutes after the restart. Iníesta and Messi have been in charge of making it blow up in five magical minutes. First, great manchego assistance has helped to overcome the Argentine Munúa with a subtle touch. Soon after, Iníesta has reached the end line and focused back where Messi was again lethal. In the blink of an eye it went from 0-0 to 0-2. 

Iníesta's recital is not over with two assists. The manchego was the author also of 0-3, with a spectacular shot from the edge. Then, the FC Barcelona number ”8” real protagonist in the Ciutat de Valencia, has invented a new support-the third of the night-to Cesc, who has shed Munúa easily. 

With 0-4 on the scoreboard, even Valdés had time to shine. First, it has been instrumental in stopping a solo arrival Martins. In the final match, the FC Barcelona keeper was exceeded Barkero stopping a penalty shot and later, in a prior action in which the referee has seen Puyol's hands when he was on the floor. A perfect ending for a team has already passed into history.
