Suarez scores in Enrique's 100th game, helps lethargic Barcelona equal unbeaten record

New Delhi: A sluggish Barcelona outfit register hard-fought 2-0 win at Levante on Sunday to equal a club record of 28 games unbeaten and move three points clear at the top of La Liga.

The game at Estadi Ciutat de Valencia was also manager Luis Enrique's 100th game in charge of Barcelona. But the coach was far from happy, despite collecting all three points.

The European champions took the lead thanks to a David Navarro own goal in the 21st minute, before Luis Suarez scoring a stoppage time goal to make it 2-0.

It was the Uruguayan's 35th goal of the season, and he was picked out pretty well by a running Lionel Messi.

The victory meant that Barca had registered 10th consecutive win in all competitions, but the score-line failed to justify Barcelona's game.

With the win, they now lead Atletico Madrid by three points and have a game in hand on Diego Simeone`s men.

Levante, had won their previous two home games, played a great game but ended losing after failing to convert half-chances that came their way.

Third-placed Real Madrid are now seven points adrift of Barca, but can cut the gap when they travel to Granada later on Sunday.
