Minute   Description
90' +2 Borja Gómez is unfortunate, scores an own goal!
Own goal! That wraps it up! Gomez is the unfortunate party, but the goal was forced by Messi, who, despite losing the ball in a crowd of players, harried to win it back and drove the ball towards goal, where Gomez sends a sliding clearance the wrong direction into the back of the net!
90' +1 Messi has just hit the post. A superb through pass from Pedro finds the Argentine on the left. He strikes hard, beats Tono, but sees his shot cannon back off the post!
90' Sanchez again! He again nips in ahead of the Granada defence to strike a loose ball in the area! Tono saves low at his feet though!
89' Could have been two! Sanchez's pace is too much as he attacks a loose ball on the edge of the box. He beats his marker, tees up Pedro in space, but the Spaniard's lifted finish goes over the bar!
87' Xavi has scored a goal for Barcelona!
XAVI HAS DONE IT! What an unbelievable strike to finally break the resistance of Tono and Co.! A cross into the area is challenged by Sanchez. The ball spills out to Xavi at the edge of the box, who touches it into the air and smashes an absolute beauty in off the underside of the bar!
86' Granada have just had two amazing openings on the break. Barca are so committed in attack, that the visitors have two opportunities to overwhelm the hosts on the break. The final ball though, in both instances, was lacking.
84' INSANE! An amazing 30 second passage! First, Orellana breaks clear beyond the sleeping Barca defence and advances clean through on Valdes, who makes a clutch block! The Blaugrana immediately storm back down the pitch, and a one-two sees Messi shoot from close range, only for Tono to deny him again!
83' Backs to the wall time for Granada here. They are close, very close, to taking the first points off Barcelona this season.
82' Xavi lifts in a telling cross towards the six-yard area. Sanchez gets up surprisingly well to peat Inigo Lopez in the air and head towards goal, but it lacks any power and is an easy grab for Tono.
81' Camp Nou up in arms appealing for a penalty. Fabregas tries to unleash his inner Messi, twisting and turning against Siqueira, but the fullback is having none of it. He slides in to clear the ball, felling Fabregas in the process, but it looks like the midfielder went down to easily. Good call.
