Overtaken by Bayern in C1 last Tuesday, Barça spared a serious crisis of confidence on Monday by snatching the draw at Camp Nou against Granada (1-1).
In the grip of serious financial difficulties, the FC Barcelona somehow manages to change the field – on a Spanish scale gets along. Six days after its heavy and logical defeat in front of Bayern Munich in the Champions League (0-3), the Blaugrana club almost chained a second disappointment in a row on its lawn at Camp Nou. This time in La Liga against Granada. It was without counting the perseverance of Koeman’s men.
Certainly limited in their means – including the ball in the foot – the Barcelonans were able to display a sufficiently combative state of mind to spare themselves the worst this Monday evening as part of the 5e championship lifting. Cold picked from the 2nde minute by Duarte, the premises chased after the score throughout the meeting, only managing to equalize in the last moments of the game, on an angry header fromAraujo (1-1, 90e).
In spite of everything
Ten minutes earlier, like a symbol, the unexpected reinforcement of the transfer window, Luke De Jong, unable to score across the Pyrenees for six months, had missed the inevitable head, alone against the opposing cage. It will certainly take time for Barça to rebuild itself. In the meantime, the balance sheet is not hopeless. With a match to catch up against Sevilla FC, the Depay and others are five lengths behind the leader Merengue, and only two points from the podium.
