LONDON (Reuters) - Barcelona continued to languish in La Liga after losing 2-0 at Granada in the fifth round of the competition.
Granada took the lead by Ramon Aziz (2) and then Alvaro Fadeo added the second goal for Granada (66 penalty).
Barca had seven points in seventh place, three points behind Granada, with 10 points and provisionally leading the table, on goal difference against Sevilla and Atletico Madrid.
The loss is Barca's second in the league this season against two wins and a draw, one point behind arch-rivals Real Madrid who face Sevilla on Sunday.
After the loss, the Spanish press talked about the future of coach Ernesto Valverde, who is in the wind with the Catalans.
This is the third win for Granada this season against a loss in a match and a draw in the same.
