Barcelona vs Granada

FULL-TIME, Barcelona 3-3 Granada: Barça drop two points after a terrible performance with and without the ball, and now sit 10 points behind the leaders with 14 games to go. Their title hopes are virtually dead, and a draw at home against the second-worst team in the league is extremely disappointing.

80’ GOAL!!! Barcelona 3-3 Granada (Yamal): BARÇA EQUALIZE AGAIN!!! The game is tied for a third time as Lamine Yamal wins the ball from José Callejón and finds the bottom corner with a beautiful strike from 25 yards!

79’ GOAL DISALLOWED: Barça equalize through Fermín López, but the goal is ruled out for an offside on Iñigo Martínez in the buildup.

65’ GOAL, Barcelona 2-3 Granada (Miquel): Granada are back in front. A side free-kick is initially dealt with by the Barça defense but the second cross finds Ignasi Miquel and the captain heads it home off the post.

63’ GOAL!!! Barcelona 2-2 Granada (Lewandowski): BARÇA EQUALIZE!!! An immediate response from the home team as João Cancelo finds Gündogan with a ball over the top and the German plays a sensational one-touch pass to Lewandowski, who is all alone at the edge of the box and fires it home!

60’ GOAL, Barcelona 1-2 Granada (Pellistri): Granada take the lead. Barça fail to clear a fairly simple cross from the right and Myrto Uzuni gives Pellistri the easiest of tap-ins at the far post to put the visitors in front.

SECOND HALF KICKOFF! Barcelona 1-1 Granada: Back underway at Montjuïc!

HALFTIME, Barcelona 1-1 Granada: Barça struggled throughout the half against Granada’s press but created two huge chances. One they scored, one they missed, and then Granada scored an equalizer they thoroughly deserved. The visitors are actually the better side at the break, and Barça need a lot of improvement to secure the win in the second half.

43’ GOAL, Barcelona 1-1 Granada (Sánchez): Granada equalize as a cross from Facundo Pellistri finds Ricard Sánchez all alone in the box and the full-back fires it home.

14’ GOAL!!! Barcelona 1-0 Granada (Yamal): BARÇA TAKE THE LEAD!!! Frenkie de Jong plays it through to João Cancelo inside the box and the full-back plays a gorgeous cross to Lamine Yamal who volleys it home at the far post!

KICKOFF! Barcelona 0-0 Granada: And we’re underway at Montjuïc!

WELCOME TO THE MONTJUÏC OLYMPIC STADIUM!!! The beautiful temporary home of the world’s greatest club in the capital of Catalonia is the site of another important La Liga match for Barcelona as the defending champions welcome struggling Granada. Barça need three points to keep pace with the leaders but haven’t beaten Granada at home in four years, and the visitors could turn their season around in the fight against relegation if they can extend their unbeaten streak against Barça to five games. This should be fun, and you’re welcome to join us to follow and comment all the action. Vamos!
