La Liga: Barcelona 2-0 Granada

[Sunday, September 23, 2012 ]

Barcelona remain top of La Liga with a perfect 15 points from five matches following a hard-fought 2-0 win over Granada at the Camp Nou.

It looked like the game would end in a frustrating stalemate, but Xavi, a 53rd-minute replacement for Thiago Alcântara, came up with a moment of magic to smash a brilliant finish in off the underside of the crossbar in the 87th minute.

There was still time for another goal, though, as Borja Gómez turned in an own goal following fine play from Lionel Messi.
