Who would've thought that Mamelodi Sundowns would stop the La Liga giants from achieving their unbeaten record?

No Spanish team has gone the entire season unbeaten in La Liga in modern times.

Barcelona were so close but chose to rest Leo Messi on the weekend, so that he could play in Wednesday's friendly against Sundowns.

It sounds bizarre but the South African champions paid big money to Barca to travel south across the world. 

Fearing he'd be tired for the World Cup, Messi was rested against Levante on Sunday. They were then astonished to lose 5-4.
