Barcelona moved up to second in La Liga thanks to a win against Granada last night but they certainly didn’t make it easy for themselves as they only managed a solitary goal at the Nou Camp. Not many would have given Granada a chance especially as only recently they were hammered 7-1 by fellow title chasers Atletico Madrid.
Rafinha scored the only goal, acrobatically hooking in from close range after Neymar’s effort hit a post. Rafinha has been incredibly efficient in front of goal as he has only had 6 shots on target and 5 of those have resulted in goals
Barcelona may have dominated but they failed to convert a raft of chances with both Neymar and Luis Suarez being denied. It was a determined performance by Granada who have never won a single point at the Nou Camp but once again the unfortunately go home empty handed.
For Luis Enrique’s side it perhaps wasn’t the best of preparations for their trip to Manchester City in midweek but they will certainly be glad that they have continued to move up the table as they now sit just two points off of their arch rivals Real Madrid.
Here’s all you need to know from last night
