Lionel Messi's first league start of 2014 couldn't inspire Barcelona to a victory as the Catalans were held to a 1-1 draw away to Levante Sunday.However, Los Granotes made a far more positive start this time around as Vyntra headed home Andreas Ivanschitz's cross as Barca conceded from a corner for the sixth time in La Liga this season.Thereafter, though, Barca struggled to create opportunities against Levante's back five in the first period with Xavi's drive from the edge of the box that drifted wide their best effort from open play.Navas had to be at his best five minutes later as he denied Messi after he had been played in by a neat one-two with Fabregas before Juanfran blocked Xavi's follow-up effort on the line.
