  1. Goodbye

    FT: Levante 3-1 Barcelona

    An incredible result for Levante - and there's plenty more Euro action still to come today!

    I'll be back with live text coverage of Real Madrid v Real Betis and Torino v Juventus from 19:30 GMT this evening.

    You'll also find reports on all today's big games, including Bayern Munich's 5-1 defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt and RB Leipzig's 8-0 demolition of Mainz over on our European football page.

    See you later!


    Levante 3-1 Barcelona

    And that is it!

    What a turnaround by Levante, who trailed 1-0 at the interval following Lionel Messi's penalty.

    The hosts scored three goals in a breathless seven-minute period, and after Messi had a second ruled out by VAR they saw out victory relatively untroubled.

    It means Real Madrid have the chance to move top when they face Real Betis later.

  3. CLOSE!

    Lionel Messi


    It's allllll about Lionel Messi. Barcelona are back in it.

    Comeback complete!

    And what a finish this is from Borja Majoral.

    Levante 0-1 Barcelona

    Barcelona get control of the ball, but they're not being allowed any time in possession once they cross the halfway line.

    Levante are working hard to prevent the visitors settling into their rhythm. How long can they keep that up?
