Team News

  • It's two out of two for Lucas Alcaraz, as they beat bottom club Deportivo, though he admits there is still room for improvement.
  • No shots have beaten Roberto since the manager arrived, but that will be put to a test of huge proportions in this match.
  • It will probably be an unchanged team from Granada, with shape of the side moving to a 4-5-1.
  • It was the first time Barcelona had kicked-off that early for over 38 years, enjoying a Sunday morning 6-1 victory over Getafe.
  • Carles Puyol will probably be rested with one eye firmly on the midweek game with Italians Milan.
  • Forward David Villa had just won over the heart of Jordi Roura this valentines week, yet he has been admitted back into hospital as the pain from kidney stones has persisted.


  • They may have already beaten the Champions, but Granada will take nothing for granted against a Barcelona team that appear to be back on track.
  • Xavi might be missing, but Andrés Iniesta was phenomenal in a deeper position last weekend, and he will surely standout once again as part of the midfield trident.
  • Lionel Messi has scored in 13 consecutive matches in the league, though it was a narrow win for the Catalans last time they were in Los Cármenes.

  • The player ratings for Barca are a little too high imo. Alcantara at least definitely does not deserve more than a 7. He gave away many a ball today.

  • Lionel Messi has incredibly racked up his 300th and 301th goal for the Catalan club

  • what does it take to stop barca - tito has made barca better than what pep has imo

  • bar 4 1 gra
