Boateng provides assist in Levante's Copa Del Rey win over Barcelona

Published on: 11 January 2019

Emmanuel Boateng was impressive for Levante UD as he provided an assist in their 2-1 win over Barcelona in the quarter-finals first leg of the Copa Del Rey at the Estadio Ciudad de Valencia on Thursday evening.

Uruguayan defender Erick Cabaco gave Levante the lead on the 4th minute of the game after connecting to Ruben Rochina's sleek pass.

Levante stunned the Blaugrana in the 18th minute when on-loan Real Madrid forward Borja Mayoral beautifully tapped in Emmanuel Boateng's cross to make it 2-0.

But the visitors pulled one back through Philippe Coutinho's late penalty strike.

Boateng lasted for 62 minutes whiles his compatriot Raphael Dwamena remained on the bench for the Frogs.

The 22-year-old made 15 appearances and has scored one goal with an assist for Levante so far this season.

He joined the Spanish side on a four-year-deal in 2017. On 13 May 2018, he scored first career hat-trick against champions Barcelona. Levante won the match 5-4, ending the possibility of an unbeaten season for Barcelona.
