Lluis Cortes’s side had already clinched the league title and the Champions League and made it a clean sweep with victory at Butarque.
The opening goal came after just four minutes when Patri Guijarro headed home Lieke Martens’s cross from the right to get Barca off to the perfect start.

The two goals put Barca in charge and a third arrived just before the half-hour mark from another header. This time it was Marta Torrejon applying the finishing touch to yet another Martens delivery.
Levante were in all sorts of trouble but managed to regroup and will feel they should have had a goal back before half-time. Sandie Toletti saw two headers fly past the post, while Estefanía Banini fired wide when she really ought to have hit the target.
After a slow start to the second half, the game exploded into life when Levante scored twice in eight minutes to get right back into the game. Alba Redondo gave Levante a lifeline by rounding goalkeeper Cata and slotting home just before the hour mark.
Banini then made it 3-2 on 67 minutes with a strong shot on the half-volley from inside the box after the ball fell kindly to her following a save from Cata.
Barca looked to be wobbling but hit back minutes later through Alexia’s second of the match to make it 4-2. The goal came after Levante gifted the 27-year-old the ball and she took full advantage by firing across goal and into the back of the net.

The goal seemed to knock the stuffing out of Levante’s comeback as Barca saw out the final stages comfortably. Indeed the Catalans almost made it 5-2 but Ana Crnogorcevic was denied by the woodwork.
The result caps a dream season for Barca Femeni and means the Catalans become the first club to have won trebles with both their men’s and women’s teams.
Congratulations Barca Femeni!
