Pierre-EmerickAubameyang was on target again for Barcelona as they needed an injury time goal from Dutch substitute Luuk De Jong to secure a 3-2 win at Levante in the Spanish La Liga last week.
Gabonese striker Pierre-EmerickAubameyang has been in very good form since he left Arsenal to join Barcelona as a free agent. Auba had more than one year left on his Gunners deal, but he was able to leave the North Londoners after his contract was cancelled thus paving the way for him to sign for Barcelona as a free agent. Pierre-EmerickAubameyang has been sidelined from the Arsenal starting XI for over a month before he joined Barcelona. He has ten goals plus one assist in 14 matches in all competitions including eight goals plus one assist in nine Spanish La Liga matches. Also, Aubameyang has scored twice in five Europa League outings in the colours of Barcelona.

For the Levante game, Barcelona went behind on 52 minutes through a Jose Luis Morales penalty after veteran Brazilian defender Dani Alves was penalised for a foul on Levante fullback Son in the box. Levante had the chance to score a second goal when they were awarded another penalty when Eric Garcia handled the ball in the Barcelona box, but Roger could not make it count from the resulting spot kick. The second penalty which was eventually missed was a wake-up call for the Catalans giants who responded with two goals in four minutes.

Pierre-EmerickAubameyang scored the equaliser on 59 minutes before young midfielder Pedri added a second goal on 63 minutes to turn the game on its head.
Levante were very stubborn in their quest to stun Barcelona as they scored an equaliser on 83 minutes through a Gonzalo Melero penalty after Barcelona substitute Clement Lenglet was penalised for a foul in the Catalan giants’ box. Auba played 84 minutes before he was replaced by DutchmanLuuk De Jong who turned out to be the scorer of the wining goal.
