Pedro gets his name on the scoresheet for the second time, linking up with Dani Alves once more to put Barcelona out of sight. Bojan worked the ball out to the right, with Alves resisting the temptation to whip a ball across, instead opting for a cut-back to Pedro who lashed in an unstoppable first-time shot from just inside the area. A stunning goal that will surely put Barcelona en route to all three points. What are the odds for Pedro to go on and claim a second-half hattrick?
Thiago has already looked useful in the last ten minutes, spraying the ball around the park effectively, while the goals seem to have lifted a huge weight off the Barcelona players shoulders. Levante may well point to that penalty that never was, but the Luis Garcia Plazas men look a beaten team as we enter the final half hour of the match. Levante need a goal quickly if they are going to have any chance of getting anything out of the match, but the counters that put Barca under pressure in the first half have long since dried up.
