Cesc Fabregas’ club, Barcelona, has defeated Granada by 2-0 in a La Liga encounter on Sunday at Camp Nou. It was the fifth consecutive victory of Barcelona in the ongoing La Liga season. Tito Vilanova’s boys are in tremendous form at the moment and the team has won all the five matches convincingly.

Barcelona has scored 14 goals in the five La Liga matches that the team has played in the current season so far. The Barcelona supporters turned up in huge numbers to watch this match and they were thoroughly entertained.

The star striker of Barcelona, Lionel Messi, wasn’t able make an impact in the match. He had got a few opportunities to take Barcelona ahead in the first half, but, the Argentinean didn’t manage to give finishing touch to any of those opportunities.

There was no goal scored in the first half. The defenders of Granada did a fantastic job for their team. The Barca team struggled to find the net in the earlier part of the second half as well. Cesc Fabregas had almost opened the scoring in the 75th minute, but, his low shot missed the goal post by a whisker.

It was Xavi who took Barcelona ahead just three minutes before the end of the match. The Spaniard got the ball right at the edge of the penalty box and he beat Tono, the goalkeeper of Granada, quite comfortably. The game went out of the reach of Granada when Borja Gomez deflected the cross of Messi into his own net in the injury time. That own goal secured the victory of Barcelona.

In the post match press conference, Tito Vilanova hailed Xavi who came to play as substitute in the 54th minute of the match and performed brilliantly. As per Vilanova, Xavi is an experienced player and he delivered for the team once again. It’s wonderful that the team has won every match in the ongoing La Liga season so far. The players are looking confident and if they continue to play in this fashion, the team would definitely regain the La Liga title from Real Madrid.
