What happens to FC Barcelona? Very worrying, the reigning Spanish champion fell to the promoted Grenada (2-0) despite the entry of Lionel Messi, Saturday in La Liga, and let the awesome Andalusian club settle temporarily ahead ahead of Seville, opposite at Real Madrid on Sunday.
Granada, surprise leader
Helpless and overwhelmed at the Nuevo Los Carmenes stadium, Barça found himself led after only two minutes of play on a header of Ramon Azeez (2nd). Then Alvaro Vadillo increased the score (66th) on a penalty kick caused by a hand of Arturo Vidal. And despite the start of the break for Messi and the promising striker Ansu Fati (16), the Catalans have already suffered their second defeat in five days of the Spanish Championships ... even though they had conceded until then four losses in two Liga seasons since the arrival of coach Ernesto Valverde! What to redouble criticism against the technician in the coming days ...
In the standings, Granada (1st, 10 pts) is a surprise leader in front of Sevilla FC (2nd, 10 pts), opposite Sunday to Real (5th, 8 pts). Atlético Madrid, braked by Celta Vigo (0-0), is third (10 pts) and Barcelona is seventh with only 7 points out of 15 possible.
