An ominously good start from the reigning La Liga champions…
Barcelona were at their brilliant best in the opening weekend of La Liga, and put seven past a hapless Levante side without reply at the Nou Camp.
Lionel Messi scored a brace, as did Pedro, while Xavi, Alexis Sanchez and Dani Alves added the rest. It could have been a lot worse for Levante, who were remarkably 6-0 down at half-time.
New Barcelona boss Gerardo Martino couldn’t have wished for a better start, and still has £50m Brazilian signing Neymar to bring in, who started this match from the bench.
