In the 62nd minute of this evening’s important La Liga encounter between Barcelona and Granada, the Blaugrana conceded an equaliser after some lax defending.
Right wing-back Sergi Roberto was punished for sitting too high and leaving Darwin Machis in space as a dangerous pass was fired in behind by Granada.
Promising centre-back Oscar Mingueza got a touch on the ball, but couldn’t keep it from running in behind, where Machis held off Roberto in a foot race and tucked into the back of the net.

Don’t think this was in the script for Ronald Koeman (who has since been sent off)! ?

Barcelona are now at risk of wasting a solid opportunity for themselves to take the top spot in La Liga.
