Messi equals Muller record as Barcelona beat Levante

Lionel Messi

"There is an agreement that Lionel will remain at the club as long as they are playing in a top league".

Record signing Philippe Coutinho did not attend the game after completing his 142-million-pound ($192.67-million) move from Liverpool to Barca on Saturday.

Messi was back in the starting line-up after missing the King's Cup draw with Celta Vigo on Thursday and marked his 400th game in La Liga by opening the scoring in the 12th minute, volleying Jordi Alba's cushioned header into the net.

And it looks like that would be the case after Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu confirmed the club will remain in La Liga - even if Catalonia is granted independence.

Paulinho added the gloss to the scoreline late on, converting from close range after Messi's fine dribble and cross.

Jordi Alba headed Messi's chipped pass back into the path of the Argentina global, who cushioned a bouncing volley across Oier Olazabal and in off the post.

Dembele then stung the palms of Oier with a 20-yard shot after a driving run at the other end, Suarez turning the rebound over when he should have hit the target.

Suarez, who has found his groove after a boring start to season, shot the ball high into the net in the 38th minute off a cross from Sergi Roberto to score his fifth goal in four games.

Levante created very few chances during the match, the best probably coming when Marc-Andre ter Stegen was forced into action to deny Shaquell Moore when he was in on a one-on-one situation.

In the second-half, Barca did struggle to kick on and they almost conceded when Levante right-back Shaquell Moore broke through into the box.

Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Sergio Busquets and Alex Vidal were among the household names that appeared in a stream of snaps on the La Liga side's Instagram story on Friday.
