Their official statement read as followed: "Levante want to inform you that, after the decision made by the judge regarding the case involving an ineligible player being used by FC Barcelona in the first leg of the Last 16 tie, Levante will this afternoon present their appeal to the RFEF's appeals committee to resolve this issue as quickly as possible."

Levante haven't given up hope of overturning the verdict and taking Barça's place in the quarter finals which is to get underway next week.
