Lionel Messi scored a brace while Neymar and Marc Bartra also scored, as Barcelona pounded Levante on Sunday an Nou Camp, 4-1, after a quiet first half. Luis Enrique's squad remain undefeated in four La Liga matches.

Messi's final goal came in the 90th minute, using a gorgeous dribbling effort followed by a left-footed strike from distance, after scoring in the 61st minute off a penalty kick.

But the Catalans started things off with a goals from close range by Bartra in the 50th minute, and Neymar in the 56th. It was a welcome burst of offense after Barcelona failed to score in the first half on Levante goalkeeper Ruben.

Victor Casadesus, who had entered the match in the 63rd minute, added a score in the 66th minute for Levante when he collected the ball in the box on a cross, and after Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen failed to punch away a lob.

Levante have yet to earn a victory this season and Luis Alcaraz's squad have just three goals. They are currently tied with four other La Liga clubs at the bottom of the table with two points.

To little surprise, Barcelona dominated possession and the attack. The Catalans took 21 shots with eight on target and controlled the ball for 70 percent of the match. Levante took 11 shots with four on goal.

Up next for Barca is a La Liga match with Celta Vigo on Wednesday, while Levante host Eibar.
