Barcelona have yet to hit top form in their La Liga title defense, yet Luis Enrique’s side still have three wins from three matches to top the table. That’s not good for the competition.

The champions host Levante on Sunday looking to make it 12 points from 12.

Barcelona have scored just four goals in three matches despite a mostly healthy attack group, but have controlled each game in getting off to the perfect start after being stunned by Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish Super Cup. The treble winners are full into their busy schedule with Champions League matches sandwiching the league game.

Here’s what you need to know about the match:

Heavy’s Pick

Barcelona’s lack of goals will at some point regress. With their three-headed monster up front, goals are a matter of when, not if. The floodgates could open in this one against a team that’s only allowed two goals so far this season. Barcelona defeated Levante 5-0 in February.

5-1 Barcelona
