Ghana duo Boateng, Dwamena feature as Levante suffer Barcelona defeat

Emmanuel Boateng played the entire duration and countryman Raphael Dwamena was a second half substitute for Levante in their 3-0 Copa del Rey defeat to Barcelona at the Camp Nou.

Boateng paired Borja Mayoral up front but were neutralized by the Catalans.

Dwamena- making a return to the Levante squad-replaced Mayoral just after the hour mark.

Levante were down 3-0 and could not bounce back.

Lionel Messi set up two Ousmane Dembele goals and then scoring himself to seal a 4-2 victory on aggregate.

Their place in the quarter-finals, however, is under threat after Levante president Francisco Javier Catalan confirmed shortly before kick-off that the club would lodge a complaint to the Spanish Football Federation on Friday.

Levante claim Barcelona defender Juan Brandariz ‘Chumi’ played illegally in the first leg as he should have been serving a suspension.
