MADRID. — Barcelona equalled a club record of 28 games unbeaten to move three points clear at the top of the Spanish La Liga soccer table with a hard-fought 2-0 win at Levante yesterday.
The European champions were far from their best in coach Luis Enrique’s 100th game in charge, but David Navarro’s first-half own goal and Luis Suarez’s strike in stoppage time was enough to secure a 10th consecutive win in all competitions.
Barca now lead Atletico Madrid by three points and have a game in hand on Diego Simeone’s men.
Third-placed Real Madrid were seven points adrift of Barca, before they travelled to Granada late yesterday.
Barca’s 28-game unbeaten run matches the same feat of Pep Guardiola’s side in 2010/11 with Enrique’s men well on course to repeat their treble of Champions League, La Liga and Copa del Rey from last season. — AFP.
