Having scored four times away at Levante in 2017-18, Ernesto Valverde’s side was defeated 5-4, however, Barca was prepared this season as they didn’t want a repeat of that last Sunday night.
Barca thrashed Levante 5-0 with a hat-trick from Lionel Messi and a contribution from Suarez.
Lionel Messi bagged three goals for his side and assisted with two goals.
“We are happy because last year we played here and conceded five after a whole season without losing,” Valverde said at his post-match press conference via Marca.
“That was only a few months ago, they are having a great season and they keep showing that.
“We remembered last year and we managed to put it behind us and leave with a clean sheet.”
“They started as we imagined,” he said.
“We had to change the setup based on the casualties we had so it was difficult for us and they squeezed us.
“They’re able to score and dangerous when they counterattack but we had the fortune of opening the score.”
