Barcelona has drawn against Granada at the Nuevo Los Cármenes (2-2), and falls to third position in the EA Sports League standings. Two goals from Bryan Zaragoza put the hosts ahead, but the Blaugrana turned it around with goals from Lamine Yamal and Sergi Roberto. The Blaugrana pressed in the second half but that was not enough to add the three points, which is why they move away from Real Madrid in the table, which already leads them by three points.
Paco López’s pupils took the lead on the scoreboard a few seconds into the match. A loss by Gavi in the starting zone caused the red and white team to counterattack, which Bryan Zaragoza took advantage of to make it 1-0. Bryan himself scored the second in the 29th minute of the match that put Barça on the ropes. Just before half-time there was another setback for the Catalan team with Koundé’s injury.
Before going to the locker room, Lamine Yamal gave life to Xavi Hernández’s team with his first goal in the EA Sports League. This goal makes the Barça jewel the youngest scorer in the history of the EA Sports League. In the second half, Barça pushed hard in search of turning the score around to take the victory and continue their pursuit of Real Madrid in the League standings.
However, despite numerous attacks, the Catalan team ran into Granada’s goalkeeper, André Ferreira. It was not until the 85th minute that the tying goal came, the work of Sergi Roberto, after a controversial play in which the locals claimed a prior foul by Joao Félix. But neither the referee nor the VAR indicated anything and the goal went up on the scoreboard. At 2-2, Barcelona went for the third and came through Joao Félix but it would be annulled due to offside by Ferran Torres in his attempt to finish.
This is the League classification
Sunday began with a surprise at La Cerámica. Las Palmas won 1-2 against Villarreal with goals from Coco and Cardona, from a penalty. The Canaries scored in two key moments of the match, just before halftime and shortly after the start of the second half. Gerard Moreno reduced the deficit in the 92nd minute and led his team in search of an equalizer but it didn’t come and the yellow submarine ended up losing at home.
Immediately afterwards, Atlético de Madrid beat Real Sociedad with controversy (2-1) thanks to a penalty goal by Antoine Griezmann in the last minutes, which consolidated them in the Champions League positions in the EA Sports League classification.

The txuri urdin also claimed a penalty for a handball by Morata.
