In his first start as a replacement for Alba, rookie Junior Firpo had a disastrous debut with a mistake in the first minute.

Granada knows how to prevent Barca from attacking.

Aware of the difficulties, coach Ernesto Valverde sent Messi and prodigy Ansu Fati onto the field at the beginning of the second half.

Struggling to find a way into Granada’s goal, Barca was careless and suffered a second goal stemming from a handball in the penalty area by Vidal.
