LIGA - Granada holds off Barcelona as Domingos Duarte sets new record
At the moment, things aren't looking good for Ronald Koeman and Barcelona.
In midweek, the Blaugrana were soundly defeated at home by Bayern Munich in the Champions League, adding to the pressure on the Dutchman.
They needed a comfortable home win against Granada tonight to get their season back on track and relieve the burden on the coaching staff and players.
Domingos Duarte scored inside the opening two minutes to put the visitors up in 1 minute and 28 seconds, prompting whistles and jeers from all corners of the Camp Nou.
Domingos Duarte goal has been adjudged the earliest goal at Camp Nou against F.C. Barcelona in LaLiga since Atlético de Madrid’s Fernando Torres in February 2005 (00:37).
Ronald Arajo's 90th-minute goal, assisted by Gavi, gave Barcelona a boost to be at par with Granada.
Due to a back injury, Alejandro Baldé, a talented 18-year-old left-back making his maiden start for the club, had to be hauled off after 40 minutes.
