An oxygen balloon with the seal of Lionel Messi in the 76th minute gave Barcelona a balsamic victory against Levante (1-0), a reward for the persistence of the locals who did not convince against a rival who fought to the end at the Camp Nou.
Barça ended two consecutive defeats. It was a decisive game and he did not fail, but his game did not convince and he suffered to add three points against a team that snatched the ball after Messi’s goal and that, in the last minutes, it put fear in the body of the Catalans.
The Argentine saved Barça. It may not be at its best, but it is still decisive. Also in a sad Barcelona, without confidence in his game and with him some players being the shadow of what they should be.
