- Argentina international Lionel Messi came off the bench to score the winner
- The Nou Camp landlords are now 2018/19 champions with three games to go
Spanish champions Barcelona on Saturday night, April 27, continued with their impressive performance in the La Liga beating Levante 1-0 at Camp Nou.
But the Catalan giants would have Lionel Messi to thank who came off the bench to score the winning goal for the 2018/19 Champions League semifinalists.
Levante went into this encounter with the hope of at-least getting a draw so as to help their target of escaping relegation this season.
They had the first chance to score in the third minutes when Coke set up Antonio Luna who was then unable to beat goalkeeper Marc Stegen.
The first half ended with both sides finding it difficult to find the back of the net at the Nou Camp.
Lionel Messi came on in the 46th minute for Philippe Coutinho, and the Argentine football star scored in the 62nd minute after receiving a great pass from Arturo Vidal.
It eventually ended 1-0 in favor of Barcelona as they are crowned Spanish champions for the 26th time.

Luis Suarez will be making a return to Anfield for the first time since he left the club five years ago for the Spanish giants.
Liverpool are looking to go one better after finishing runners up to Real Madrid in last season's Champions League final, while Barcelona are seeking a first final appearance since 2015.
