The Ousmane Dembele disciplinary saga earlier in the season has since been replaced by the uncertainty around Philippe Coutinho's future while their defensive woes have been a constant theme as has Malcom's lack of playing time.
Yellow cards: Enrich (Min. 42) for Eibar, Suarez (Min. 45) for Barcelona, Pique (Min. 70) for Barcelona. But he was left all alone against Suarez when Sergi Roberto caught the defense out of position with a quick throw-in directly to Suarez, who shot past Riesgo from a tight angle in the 59th. But what about Suarez? Subs - Vidal 5, Semedo 5, Dembele 7.
Suarez's goals took him on to 14 league strikes for the season and means he and close friend Messi have scored a remarkable 31 times between them this season - more than the total goal tallies of 17 teams in the league.
One of the positives Barcelona can take from the defeat to Levante is the performance of Denis Suarez.
Eibar continued to have their moments as Fabian Orellana struck over the Barcelona crossbar in the 38th minute before a series of crosses into the home side's box caused a lot of concern.
He has only scored four goals in the league, and has reportedly fell out of favour with Valverde.
After Messi's second-half goal gave Barcelona a 2-0 lead over Eibar, Luis Suarez scored his second goal on the afternoon in the 59th minute to put Barcelona up 3-0.
Coutinho became the club's most expensive signing in history when he swapped Merseyside for Barcelona but it has not all gone to plan for the club or the player.
Eibar are again enjoying another impressive campaign, but Barcelona were rampant in the period between their second and third goal, while the tempo remained high entering the final 30 minutes of action. Everyone expected Suarez to pick out a teammate when he was played through down the right channel, but with the outside of his boot he finds the back of the net.
