Barca’s shock defeat keeps title race wide open

Barcelona suffered a shock 2-1 home defeat by Granada last night, conceding two second-half goals to blow the chance of moving top of LaLiga.

The result was a body blow for Barca, who had lost just once in their previous 22 league games and no longer have the destiny of the title in their own hands.

“We’re really down. We tried until the end but we weren’t good enough in the attacking third and they’ve scored with their two attacks,” Barcelona defender Jordi Alba told Movistar.

“It was a unique chance to go top after such a tough year.”
