Barcelona Vs. Granada: Final Score 2-0, Blaugrana Find Winner Late

It took until the 87th minute for Barcelona to score, but they've kept their advantage over Real Madrid in the La Liga standings with a 2-0 victory over Granada at Camp Nou. The visitors defended brilliantly and Granada goalkeeper Toño was the clear man of the match, even in defeat, but the Blaugrana's winner was well-deserved. In stoppage time, they added a second through an own goal.

Xavi netted Barcelona's only goal scored by one of their players with a stellar half-volley, hit from 20 yards out off the underside of the crossbar. It came after numerous saves by Toño, who looked unbeatable on the night. An eventual Barcelona goal felt inevitable throughout the second half, but it took an extraordinarily long time for it to come because of his exceptional play.

A Granada comeback was never realistic and the game was effectively over when Xavi scored, but Barcelona added an insurance goal anyway. In the second minute of stoppage time, Borja Gomez deflected a Lionel Messi cross into his own goal to add to the home side's lead and ensure a victory for Barcelona.
