Barcelona are back in action with their game in hand in La Liga this week as they lock horns with Granada in a crucial fixture at the Camp Nou on Thursday. Barcelona have been impressive under Ronald Koeman this year and could move to top of the table with a victory in this fixture.
Granada find themselves in eighth place in the La Liga standings at the moment and have punched above their weight this season. The away side slumped to a 2-1 defeat against Sevilla last week and will need to take it up a notch on Thursday.
Barcelona, on the other hand, are in a four-way race for the La Liga title and cannot afford to drop points in this fixture. The Catalan giants have managed four victories in their last five league games and will be confident ahead of this game.
