This morning, Barca welcomed Granada at Lluis Olympic Companys home field in round 24 of La Liga. It was thought that by only having to face an opponent in the relegation race, the Blaugrana would easily win, but in the end, Xavi Hernandez’s team had to “sweat” to be able to win 1 point.
The above disappointing result left the Catalan team 10 points behind top team Real Madrid, thereby making their hopes of defending the La Liga throne more fragile than ever. However, in the interview with Barca Blaugranes after the match, coach Xavi still expressed optimism.
“We dropped 2 points even though we had many opportunities to finish the match. Granada played a great match and caused us many difficulties,” Xavi said. “The tournament is becoming difficult for Barca, to win we need to work a lot but The team still has a chance if we don’t give up. We need to take better advantage of scoring opportunities and show our desire to win.”
After the draw against Granada, Barca will have 6 days to prepare before entering the trip to Celta Vigo’s Balaidos Stadium in round 25 of La Liga taking place at dawn next Sunday.
