Was the result fair?
Yes, without a doubt. It was an easy night for Barcelona, and even the die hard Levante supporters will admit that their side were miles behind their rivals. The visitors dominated possession following a sluggish start, and the statistics are in no way deceiving.
It's difficult to be critical of Levante's display. Jose Luis Mendilibar's side actually started pretty well, and created a few half-chances early on, but you sensed the game was over as soon as Neymar opened the scoring. Vyntra's red card certainly didn't help their cause, and their tired legs invited pressure from Barcelona in the second half.
Worryingly for their rivals, Barcelona didn't even need to get out of third gear to score five goals. Of course, Luis Enrique's side will face tougher challenges, but this was another sign that the head coach is building a very good relationship with his players. Going forward they were predictably fast with their passing and movement, while Sergio Busquets and Rakitic controlled the midfield with impressive performances.
Sports Mole's man of the match
Lionel Messi: It was certainly a team performance tonight, but it won't surprise anyone to learn that Messi was superb once again. After hitting a penalty wide in the first half, the Argentine just got better and better as he linked up brilliantly with his teammates before rounding off a great display with a deserved goal.
As if it isn't hard enough playing against Barcelona, the last thing you want to see is your goalkeeper throwing the ball to Jesus Fernandez. The Levante shot-stopper was caught in two minds as he set up Messi with the mistake, and the Barca ace took advantage with a classy chipped finish.
José Luis González González was forced to change the game with one of his decisions, but he had very little option other than to show Vyntra a red card for bringing down Messi, who looked set to find the back of the net from six yards out.
Levante: Mendilibar's search for a first win continues on Wednesday when they visit Granada.
Barcelona: Enrique's team will aim for a fifth successive league win against Malaga on Wednesday night.
