Barcelona did just enough to defeat last-place Levante 2-0 and tie its all-time record of 28 consecutive games without losing on Sunday.
Barcelona took the lead with an own goal by defender David Navarro in the 21st and sealed the victory with an injury-time goal by Luis Suarez to match the unbeaten streak set by Pep Guardiola’s team in the 2010-11 season.
