Barcelona may have lost the chance to lead the race for the Spanish League title this season after squandering a two goals lead against Levante to play a 3-3 draw at the end of the match.

Lionel Messi and Pedri gave the Catalans the lead in the 25th and 34th minutes but the Catalans leaked two quick goals in the second half to see the hosts level parity with the guests.

Ousmane Dembele restored his side's lead 64th minute but Sergio Leon's 83rd-minute effort ensured the Nou Camp side will not go back home with maximum points.

The results however propelled the Blaugrana to the second position on the table with one point behind leaders Atletico Madrid and one point above Real Madrid - both of whom have one match in hand.

Meanwhile, after the game, fans took to social media to blame Barcelona for denying Messi the opportunity to win another league title in his last season with them as reported by Sport Bible.

They claim that the six-time Ballon d'Or winner could have won his first Premier League title had the Catalans allow him to leave last summer when he pushed to leave Camp Nou.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Barcelona twice surrendered their lead in their 3-3 draw with Levante on Tuesday night, May 11, and now they are in danger of missing out on this season’s title.

Lionel Messi and Pedri had given the Catalan giants a two-goal lead in the first half but the hosts drew themselves level courtesy of stunning strikes by Melero and Jose Luis Morales who both struck before the hour mark.

And not long again, Barcelona restored their lead through Ousmane Dembele, but they failed to protect it letting Sergio Leon seal a draw for Levante with a goal in the 83rd minute.
