Levante puts an end to Barcelona’s perfect season

Barcelona’s hegemony seemed to have no limits, until now. The blaugranas were having a seamless, perfect F League season, without giving up a single point, achieving victory and three points in all the games of the national competition. With 48 points and a distance of nine from the next in the table, Real Madrid, and without any opponent capable of standing up to them, the crown seemed more than established in Barcelona. However, Levante has arrived to break this idyllic season of Jonatan Giráldez’s and show that the Blaugranas are from this world.

This week the postponed matches of matchday 14 of League F for the Super Cup were played. Barça received Levante at the Johan Cruyff Stadium ready to continue extending their winning streak. And the truth is that it seemed like it would be like that, given that in the 21st minute of the match, Salma Paralluelo put the Blaugranas ahead. The play began from the corner, where Barcelona’s seven put the ball into play with a short pass to Caroline Graham, who returned it to Paralluelo so that she could send the ball into the back of the net.

With 1-0 ahead on the scoreboard it seemed that the score was on track for the locals and with this result they put an end to the first 45 minutes. However, the granotas were not willing to give up so quickly and in the 55th minute they gave the bell, putting the score back into a draw. Alba Redondo scored the tying goal thanks to a through ball from Erika González, making an almighty Barça tremble, which was not successful in front of goal. The chances continued to happen for Jonatan Giráldez’s men, but without seeing the goal.

The minutes passed without either team being able to move the scoreboard again. The blaugranas were beginning to despair as the 90 minutes were ending and the three points were slipping from their grasp. So it was. After one minute added, the referee signaled the end of the match. Tie and one point for each team. A result that Levante celebrated like a final, given that it had been four years since anyone had managed to get a point at the Johan Cruyff.

That fortress into which Barcelona had managed to convert its stadium was transformed into a house of cards. Those 79 consecutive victories at home came to an end at the hands of Levante, which continues to climb positions in the table in search of snatching second place from Real Madrid, from whom it is only two points apart. The truth is that the granotas have achieved what neither the whites nor Atlético de Madrid had achieved until now: standing up to the almighty Barcelona.
