Levante complains Barcelona used ineligible player

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Levante says it has made a formal complaint against Barcelona, accusing its Spanish rival of using an ineligible player in last week's Copa del Rey.

Levante says Barcelona broke the rules by using youth player Juan "Chumi" Brandariz on Jan. 10 because the defender had incurred a one-match suspension while playing with the club's reserve team in the third division.

Levante won the first leg 2-1, but Barcelona overturned the result in Thursday's second leg to go through 4-2 on aggregate.
