At the far post, Depay tries an acrobatic return to take over Mingueza’s long cross. The ball passes next to his right foot.
Start of the second period. There was a change at the break for Barca and Granada.
The phases of possession of the ball of Barça did not put Granada in difficulty until the end of the first period, with in particular a header from Araujo. But the Blaugrana took a while to react after being surprised at the outset by a quick opener launched by Escudero and concluded by Duarte.
What a parade of Maximiano! He is the author of a reflex parry to deflect with the end of the right hand, close to his post, a very beautiful recovery of the head of Araujo, following a free kick wound by Depay.
A free kick from Granada is pushed back in two stages outside the Barcelona area. Monchu unleashes a powerful strike against which Ter Stegen folds to avoid the goal of the break.
Change for Barcelona: Balde, hit in the lower back, gives way to Mingueza on injury.
Yellow card for Montoro for a gesture of nervousness. The player sends for the ball in touch and is called to order by the central referee.
The flagship rookie of the summer, the former Lyonnais Memphis Depay has scored 2 goals and delivered an assist in 3 league games since the start of the season.
Depay rolls up a free kick from the right lane 30 yards from goal. His center is easily cleared with the head by the opposing defense.
In front of the Barcelona sidelines, Luuk De Jong accelerated his warm-up to perhaps bring freshness and rhythm in attack after the break.
It has been the status quo for a while on the pitch, with possession that remains Barcelona around the area of Granada, but still no dangerous opportunity from the Blaugranas.
Change for Granada: Brice Eteki is therefore replaced due to injury by Montoro. The match can resume.
The meeting was stopped for several minutes with the return of Eteki on the lawn when the player was not in a state to resume. He will be evacuated on a stretcher.
