Granada v Barcelona - as it happened
Thanks for joining me tonight. See you next time for more action.
FT: Granada 0-4 Barcelona. A very easy win for the visitors sees them go third in the league.
3 minutes added.
The ball is put in the box for Braithwaite by Griezmann but he puts it wide.
Alba is booked for a foul.
Looks like Barca will be heading for a clean sheet and a 4-0 win.
Busquets is shown the yellow card.
Kenedy has a shot saved by Ter Stegen.
Barca sub: Junior Firpo on for Dest.
That sending off has just piled more misery on Granada.
Vallejo is booked for pulling down Braithwaite as he was breaking. Free-kick to Barca at the edge of the box.
Griezmann swings his leg at the shot but it goes over the bar.
Suárez is booked for a foul.
Barcelona sub: Trincao on for Pedri.
Barcelona sub: Puig on for Dembélé.
This has been a good performance from Barca.
Granada sub: Soro on for Yangel.
Alba is played over the top and drills it just past the post.
Granada sub: Kenedy on for Machis.
Barca sub: De Jong off for Pjanic.
Barca sub: Messi off for Braithwaite.
And Griezmann puts the game to bed. Dembélé chips it over to Griezmann and the latter takes a touch and strikes into the far corner from a tight angle. The keeper should have done better.
Machis puts it over from the cross.
De Jong has a shot at the edge of the box that goes over the bar.
Granada are certainly looking a lot more attacking now.
Mingeuza is booked for a foul on Suárez.
Puertas has a shot from just inside the box but it's straight at Ter Stegen. He should have done better.
Granada will need an early goal if they want to turn this match around.
Granada sub: Milla on for Montoro.
Granada sub: Soldado off for Suárez.
Granada sub: Neva off for Vallejo.
And we're back.
HT: Granada 0-3 Barcelona. A very easy match for Barcelona so far with Messi netting a brace.
1 minute added.
Soldado is booked for a foul on Griezmann.
Barcelona are really turning on the style.
Messi steps up and gets it under the wall and into the far bottom corner. What a goal.
Pedri is fouled right at the edge of the box. Good chance for Messi here.
Dembélé has a first time effort from the edge of the box that goes over the bar.
Messi is passed the ball by Griezmann at the edge of the box and lifts it into the top corner. A good goal.
Machis has an effort that is easy for Ter Stegen.
Puertas is played through one on one with Ter Stegen but his weak effort is easy for the German. He was offside though.
It has gone a bit quiet lately.
And both players are ok.
Umtiti is down holding his groin. Dest is also down.
Soldado has a shot from a tight angle inside the box that goes wide.
The Barca goalkeeping coach has just been sent off. Not sure what it was for though.
Dembélé has a shot from just inside the box that whistles wide.
Griezmann is played through and slots it into the net. He looks offside but the goal is given. He was in an offside position but the pass hits off Soldado so it's onside.
Just the one chance so far.
The hosts are doing well so far.
First chance for Granada. Barca lose the ball in the middle and Puertas latches on to it and forces the save from Ter Stegen.
And the game is underway.
Umtiti starts ahead of Araujo. He got injured in the warm up.
Granada stay 7th no matter the result. If Barca get at least a point they will go third.
Granada won the last match here 2-0. Barca won the return fixture last January.
The surroundings would normally be full of people tonight but there are no fans for obvious reasons. A nice image with the Sierra Nevada mountains in the background.
Barcelona XI: Ter Stegen; Alba, Mingueza, Araújo, Dest; De Jong, Busquets; Dembélé, Pedri, Messi; and Griezmann.
Granada XI: Rui Silva; Foulquier, Domingos, Germán, Neva; Herrera, Yan Eteki, Montoro; Antonio Puertas, Soldado and Machis.
