400 and out - Opta numbers as Barcelona taste LaLiga defeat at last
Barcelona's 5-4 defeat at Levante made a considerable impression in the record books, as well as ending the champions' invincible dreams.
Barcelona's attempt to finish LaLiga as undefeated champions in 2017-18 crashed to a stunning halt with a 5-4 loss at Levante on Sunday.
Ernesto Valverde's side were just two games away from a historic achievement but, with Lionel Messi rested, they fell to a remarkable defeat.
Philippe Coutinho's hat-trick only came after Emmanuel Boateng had done likewise for Levante and Enis Bardhi hit a brilliant brace for the hosts.
Here are some of the numbers behind a dream of invincibility perishing.
