Had a quiet first half and wasn't tested too much apart from picking the ball out of his own net. However, when called into action he was heroic and continually denied Barca with some great saves.
Was caught on his heels for Barca's equalizer in the first half as he allowed Pique to get beyond him to head home. However, recovered well and was as solid as a rock in the second half.
Should have looked over his shoulder a few times as Alexis got beyond him through diagonal passes over the top. However, for the most part, he kept the Chilean quiet and didn't allow him to hit the byline.
Opened the scoring in the first half as he easily out-muscled and out-jumped Fabregas to bullet a corner kick home to make it 1-0. Brought the ball out of defense excellently at times.
Put in a performance of someone 10 years younger as he put his body in front of everything inside the box.
Put in a superb defensive shift. Was constantly back helping out Vyntra and on more than one occasion got the better of Messi with well-timed challenges.
Was superbly disciplined in front of the Levante defense and proved to be a formidable barrier to get beyond through the middle. Was excellent in the rare occasions Levante saw possession, as he kept it simple and retained the ball smartly.
Moved the Barca defenders out of position as much as he could with runs into the channels and looked to introduce midfielders into play. However, didn't show much in terms of a direct threat toward the opposition goal.
Earned the corner kick and took the set piece which lead to the opening goal as he picked out Vyntra at the front post.
Allowed Simao to sit in behind as he doggedly and relentlessly pressed the Barcelona midfield. Was constantly matching the dashes forward of midfield runners and retreated back into his own box to make some important tackles.
N. El Zhar
Held the ball up well and took the pressure off his defense by retaining possession in key areas.
Could do nothing to prevent the opening goal as he was let down by his defense and had a generally quiet game.
Didn't have too much to deal with in terms of defensive work and so should have been better in attacking areas. Too often this season his delivery has been poor, and tonight was no different.
Shook off the attentions of Navarro at the front post to head in Xavi's corner kick to make it 1-1 in the first half. Was pulled out of position a few times by the runs of midfielders but didn't allow a straight course toward goal.
Typically went on his signature runs on the overlap past Pedro and got some decent service into the box at times that was wasted by his teammates. However, was slightly guilty of shirking his defensive responsibilities as he left plenty of space for Levante down that right-hand side.
Remained calm and collected while under relentless pressure from the Levante midfield and continued his passing game relatively well.
Cut a frustrated figure in the first half as his usual stellar passing was not up to usual standards, but did create Pique's equalizer with a pin-point corner.
Had a bright opening to the match in which he left Vyntra for dead a few times with his pace and also tested the gloves of Navas with a rasper of a strike from the left.
Looked like a fish out of water trying to deal with the aerial ability of Vyntra, which lead to the Greek international netting the opening goal.
Was caught out in the middle of the park a few times, which earned him a yellow card for a cynical foul on El-Zhar on the halfway line.
Was pretty isolated down the right-hand side and didn't get the same kind of service with diagonal passes that he usually gets. Got the better of the left back a few times by utilizing his pace but was wasteful when he got into advanced areas.
Was bereft of any kind of space up top and so was forced to come incredibly deep to receive the ball, which didn't prove to be too productive. Looked to take the game by the scruff of the neck in the second half and saw a header wonderfully saved by Navas, but his teammates didn't show the same desire.
