Barcelona celebrate their opening goal against Levante.

Barcelona were not at their best but still managed to claim a 2-0 win over Levante to put pressure on La Liga rivals Real Madrid.

Luis Enrique's table-topping side are three points clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid and seven ahead of Real, who take on Granada later on Sunday.

Barca took the lead in the 21st minute when Jordi Alba's cross from the left deflected in off Levante defender David Navarro.

Bottom-of-the-table Levante hit the post through Morales but were unable to find a leveller against the visitors.

And in the final seconds Luis Suarez was set clear and kept his cool in front of goal with a smart finish to seal all three points.

The result ensured Barca tied their all-time record of 28 consecutive games without losing, matching the unbeaten streak set by Pep Guardiola's team in the 2010-11 season.

Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.
