Barcelona’s hope of claiming the top stop in La Liga was tonight dashed at Camp Nou by Granada FC.
Captain Lionel Messi had put the host in front after a good connection with Antoine Griezeman, firing to the far corner for a goal.
However, a defensive blunder by Barcelona defence gifted the visitor a goal to equalize before sealing the winning goal. Ronald Koeman was given a marching order.
Athletico Madrid are leading the table with 73 points, followed by Real Madrid and Barcelona with 71 points respectively after 33 games.
