Levante wins 5-4 to end Barca's bid for unbeaten Liga season

Levante wins 5-4 to end Barca's bid for unbeaten Liga season

The Barca boss believes Levante are now the best team in La Liga, having won eight of their last 10 matches to avoid relegation.

Led by Emmanuel Boateng's hat trick and two more goals from Enis Bardhi, Levante was heading toward a historic rout of the recently crowned champions when the hosts built a 5-1 advantage after 56 minutes.

"We haven't been solid, every time they attacked they scored", Valverde said.

"We are not feeling good, we really wanted to end the season without losing but we had a very hard game against a highly motivated team and when you concede five goals, you don't deserve to win", Coutinho told reporters.

"We are angry not to have come through this game and not to have the opportunity to finish unbeaten", Valverde said."But in a season some matches go your way and some don't". "Yerry Mina showed personality at certain moments of the match and I haven't seen him make a mistake. It's come in the 37th game, so it hurts to lose it now, but it could have come in the first, third or 14th game", Valverde said.

Skipper Andres Iniesta blamed a lack of organisation.

If adequate battery power, the internal combustion engine is automatically switched off and the auto moves on electric. The first auto that will receive this technology, are the Kia Sportage, which will be launched this year.

Barcelona may never get a better chance of completing a full La Liga season unbeaten, says Terry Gibson.

"It's not the most important thing this season - it just wasn't to be". This was especially clear at the beginning of the second half.

That followed their Champions League capitulation in Rome, leaving a bitter taste despite the satisfaction of wresting the Spanish title back from Real Madrid and trouncing Sevilla in the King's Cup final.

"With every moment that it approaches, everything becomes that little bit more hard", the midfielder added.

Valverde's team last lost a Spanish topflight game on April 8, 2017 against Malaga at La Rosaleda.

"I hope it will be a nice memory for me after so long".
