The rattle: Barcelona lost to the newcomer Granada
Barcelona have had a heavy start to the La Liga season. Tonight came the team's second loss in five games. It did it to the newcomer Granada.
In 2018/19, Barcelona lost just three matches throughout the league season.
Already, after five games played, the team has lost two.Zeroed against the newcomer
The first, which came in the league premiere away against Athletic Bilbao, was perhaps a little unexpected, but not completely sensational.
But most people would probably call the other, who came tonight, like.
Away from the newcomer Granada, the reigning league champion was zeroed out, losing by 0-2.Neglect in the defense
Barcelona got a nightmare start to the match, as the team already released the first goal of the match after 63 seconds of play. Granada goalkeeper Rui Silva hit a long ball that, after slackening in the Barca defense, looked for Ramon Azeez who put up 1-0. Barcelona had not let up such an early goal since Karim Benzema scored 1-0 for Real Madrid in El Clasico in December 2011.
But that would be worse. Alvaro Vadillo scored 2-0 on the 66th minute and Barcelona had not scored a single shot on goal.Seven in the league
During the final half hour of the match, Barcelona created some, but they never managed to get holes on Rui Silva in the Granada goal, whose team now tops the table, at the same point but with better goals difference than Sevilla and Atletico Madrid.
Barcelona are seventh after five matches played, and have not won any of their first three away games. The team has not had such a bad season start since the fall of 1994. However, that season ended with a league victory, so maybe their supporters should not be too worried ...
