Barcelona v Granada Preview

Barcelona come into Saturday`s fixture unbeaten in La Liga and have yet to concede a single goal after five outings.

A rather limp header from Gerard Piqué was as […]


La Liga Team of the Week

It was a Match-Round blessed with so many goals, with only one game, the clash at the San Mames between Athletic Club and visitors Granada the only fixture to produce less than two goals.
