FC Barcelona must put their midweek UEFA Champions League disappointment behind them this evening, as they travel to face Granada CF in a must win La Liga clash. With Atletico Madrid in action tomorrow against city rivals, Getafe CF, the Blaugrana know that a win tonight will take them back to the top of La Liga; albeit on a temporary basis. However, with a Copa del Rey final on the horizon, Barcelona may also be tempted to rest a few key players, with an eye on lifting that trophy in Valencia on Wednesday. Will they be able to keep their focus and return to the top of the table?
Despite losing in midweek to Diego Simeone's incredible Atletico Madrid, Barcelona have very little to be concerned about. Simply outclassed on the night and in the tie in general, this was not a one-off, or a dip in form. This was simply a wake-up call, reminding the Blaugrana that there are other teams, aside from themselves, who are capable of doing damage. One match does not mean our team is poor, or any less capable of defeating a team like Granada. Indeed, Atletico Madrid aside, Gerardo Martino has built up an impressive record in his time in charge.
Lionel Messi is on form. Neymar is playing well. Andres Iniesta is on another level. Everything is in place for Barcelona to continue their La Liga title challenge -- can they follow through and deliver tonight? Predict the score of tonight's match by commenting with your score below. Best of luck!
