FC Barcelona booked a victory in La Liga for the first time in almost a month on Sunday.
Partly due to goals from Memphis Depay and Luuk de Jong, Levante was defeated 3-0 in Camp Nou, giving coach Ronald Koeman some air again.
After the 0-3 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League and disappointing draws against Granada (1-1) and Cádiz (0-0) in the competition, Barcelona finally played a good game again on Sunday.
After seven minutes, Memphis used a penalty, after which De Jong signed for the 2-0 within fifteen minutes.
It was De Jong's first goal in the service of Barcelona, which rents the striker from Sevilla.
After the quick 2-0, Barcelona didn't run into problems anymore and in the extra it got even better.
Ansu Fati, who replaced Luuk de Jong in the 81st minute, put the 3-0 final score on the scoreboard.
It was the first time since June 2003 that two Dutchmen were accurate in a competition match against Barcelona.
At the time, Marc Overmars and Patrick Kluivert scored against Valencia.
In contrast to Luuk de Jong, Memphis did complete the ninety minutes against Levante.
Former Ajax player Sergiño Dest was also allowed to start, while Frenkie de Jong was suspended because of his red card against Cádiz on Thursday.Keywords:
