Barcelona drop to 7th on La Liga table after disappointing draw against Granada at Camp Nou

  • Barcelona's struggles continue after the exit of Lionel Messi as they came from a goal down to play a 1-1 draw with Granada at Camp Nou
  • The visitors opened the scoring just 90 seconds into the encounter through Domingos Duarte's header from the right side of the 18-yard box
  • But Koeman's men maintained their fighting spirit as they secured one point after Arajuo's timely header in the 90th minute

Ronald Arajuo saved Ronald Koeman's blushes after scoring a late-minute goal that salvaged one point for Barcelona in their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou on Monday, September 20.

This came on the back of the Catalans' 3-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in their Champions League opening group fixture last week.

Despite being sandwiched by the opponents, the 22-year-old managed to jump above them stretching his neck to meet Pablo Gavira's cross in the 90th minute of the encounter.

Meanwhile, it was the visitors who first light up Camp Nou after shaking their hosts up in the early minutes of the meeting.

How Granada scored against Barcelona?

Just when both teams were settling into the game, Domingos Duarte stunned the hosts in the second minute after rising up to meet Sergio Escudero's cross and headed it into the back of the net.

The delivery flew past about four Barca players before getting to its target who nodded it into the left corner of the post.

Koeman's men will now shift their focus to their next game against Cadiz on Thursday, September 23rd as reported by Spanish news outlet Marca.

Why Raheem Sterling is wanted by Barcelona

Legit.ng earlier reported that Barcelona might be planning to sign Raheem Sterling on loan from Manchester City during the January transfer window.

The English winger seems to have fallen out of favour with his manager Pep Guardiola, thereby limiting his playing time at the Etihad Stadium outfit.

Reports coming out of the player's camp however reveal that he is not pleased with his new role at City and will consider a move away from the Premier League side.
