FC Barcelona got a dramatic, but epic victory against Levante UD this Sunday. The blaugrana came back, in the last 'gasp' to put an end to a 'curse' in the Ciutat de València

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The Ciutat of València is a stadium that him 'resist' many times to the 'big' of LaLiga. It happened him to the Real Madrid in the beginning of this season, with a 3-3 in which Vinícius Jr dressed of hero when the party seemed lost, and almost happens him to a FC Barcelona that suffered until the last second to carry the three points home.

The feudo of the Raise UD is one of the most difficult to visit for the Barça. In fact, before the victory 2-3 of this Sunday, the blaugrana alone had won one of his last four visits to the Ciutat of València, a register inaudito that speaks of how much grows the group 'granota' in his house, especially in situations of survival like which have right now.

The last time that won the Catalans was in the season 2018-2019, in the first turn, with a 'manita' solvent. In the previous visit, fell with a 5-4 in a party of authentic madness in which the levantinistas put 5-1 in the marker. The Barça almost achieves a traced back historical, but was missing him time.

The following visits have been the same of complicated: 3-1 in the 2019-2020 and 3-3 in the past season, in the crash in which the Barça of Koeman said him "goodbye", literally, to the title of LaLiga, in a scare of party. In this opportunity, on 11 May, the Barça advanced with a comfortable 0-2 that allowed him put leader (momentáneamente), with goals of Messi and Pedri in the first part, but the Raise empató in the beginning of the second half by means of the goals of Gonzalo Melero and Luis Moral. Dembélé Advanced again to the ones of Koeman, but Pedro León went back to sign the tables to seven for the end.

End to a bad series

With the victory of this Sunday, the Barça puts point to final to a negative series and, unlike the past season, with options (at least mathematical) to struggle by the title of LaLiga. The Barcelona add 60 units, twelve less than the Real Madrid, with a party less. The culés recognise that it is difficult to think in a traced back, but Xavi Hernández stood out that "LaLiga is very difficult because the Madrid does not fail. They have difficult parties and we also. If they leave some point in these two weeks perhaps can believe something more".
