Lionel Messi's goal not enough as Barca misses out on the chance to go top of La Liga table.
Barcelona had their destiny in their own hands when they faced mid table team Granada in La Liga Santander.
It was an outstanding game and a win for the Catalans could have planted them at the apex of the la liga table.
Lionel Messi shot Barca into the lead in the first half thanks to a brilliant assist by Antoine Griezman. Messi could've doubled the lead when he found himself in a one on one situation with the Granada goalkeeper but missed after a slight touch form the goalkeeper.
Granada came into the party in the second half and got two decisive goals to overturn the game.
The face on Ronald Koeman tell it all, total disappointment was well written on. So Barca remains in the third position with 71 points one below Madrid and two below Atletico Madrid who are the league leaders.
