Lamine Yamal’s Brilliance Shines in Barcelona’s La Liga Match Against Granada

Lamine Yamal has scored three goals in two appearances in La Liga against Granada

Teenage winger Lamine Yamal scored twice as Barcelona came from behind to draw a six-goal thriller against La Liga strugglers Granada.

The 16-year-old hit the opener for the hosts but Ricard Sanchez levelled from Facundo Pellistri’s cross.

A frenetic six-minute period saw on-loan Manchester United winger Pellistri add the visitors’ second, Robert Lewandowksi equalise and Ignasi Miquel restore Granada’s lead.

Yamal’s second rounded off the scoring.

While the contribution of Yamal was a huge positive, in the context of the title race it proved to be another disappointing occasion for Barcelona.

Xavi’s side now sit 10 points adrift of leaders Real Madrid and they also missed out on the opportunity to get within touching distance of second-placed Girona, who are five points clear of them.

Their performance underlined why Xavi has decided to leave the club at the end of the season – convinced the Catalan club needs a change of direction.

Granada, who had taken just one point on their travels this season and who are battling relegation, looked capable of scoring at will against a porous Barca defence that has now conceded almost five times as many goals at home as in the entirety of last season.
