SECOND HALF KICKOFF! Granada 1-0 Barcelona: Please do something.
HALF-TIME, Granada 1-0 Barcelona: Another terrible half on the road from Barça, who conceded a very poor goal early on and showed zero urgency to equalize. The passing is awful, there’s no movement and the defense is letting Granada fire shots at goal whenever they want. This has been truly bad.
GOAL, Granada 1-0 Barcelona (Azeez 2’): Terrible start for Barça as Junior Firpo gives the ball away, Puertas’ shot is deflected and goes over Ter Stegen, and Azeez heads the ball home for Granada.

Matchday Thread Rules
We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:
Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, be careful with the swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do it will be warned, and those who post links will be instantly banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.
Have fun with the game! Forever and ever, no matter the competition, VISCA EL BARÇA!
