Goodbye

Granada 1-4 Barcelona

So it's as you were at the top of La Liga. Real Madrid started the day two points clear before extending their advantage after a comfortable win over Alaves.

Barcelona, despite conceding an equaliser, have cut that lead back down to two points again after an easy victory over Granada.

Will the race for the La Liga title go down to the wire? Many thanks for your company. 

Until next time.

Juve six points clear

Napoli 1-1 Juventus

Italian Serie A

Just time to tell you that leaders Juventus have been held to a 1-1 draw by third-placed Napoli in Serie A. It means Juve's lead at the top is six points with eight games to go.

FULL-TIME

Granada 1-4 Barcelona

No Messi? No problem. Barcelona are back to within two points of leaders Real Madrid.

Icing on the cake

Granada 1-4 Barcelona

Barca are making the extra man advantage count as Neymar taps home from six-yards. Too easy.

GOAL - Granada 1-4 Barcelona

Neymar

Tap-in.

Granada 1-3 Barcelona

One positive for Granada has been the performance of young substitute Jeremie Boga. The on-loan signing from Chelsea has a chance to score a second but shoots straight at Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Granada 1-3 Barcelona

Luis Suarez squares to Neymar who looks certain to score before a Granada defender just about scrambles it clear.

Rakitic seals victory

Granada 1-3 Barcelona

Granada have made a good fist of this but they're going to end up with nothing as Ivan Rakitic's heavily deflected shot finds its way into the net.

There's no coming back from this for the 10-man hosts.

Game over.

RED CARD TO AGBO

Granada 1-2 Barcelona

Is that Granada's last chance of an equaliser gone? Uche Agbo, on loan from Watford, is sent off for a second yellow card.

Ten minutes remaining. Granada are not done yet. Everything to play for.

YELLOW CARD

Granada 1-2 Barcelona

A shoving match between Andreas Pereira and Ivan Rakitic results in a yellow card for the Barca midfielder. Moments later Uche Agbo gets a caution for a clumsy challenge on Neymar.

Granada 1-2 Barcelona

Andreas Pereira forces Marc-Andre ter Stegen into a routine save from distance. Not bad from the loan signing from Manchester United but Granada need more quality if they are going to get a second equaliser.

Granada 1-2 Barcelona

Circle 23 April in your diaries, folks. It's El Clasico day. A huge fixture is set to become even more important as Barca and Real Madrid square up for a match that could go a long way to deciding the title.

Granada 1-2 Barcelona

So close to 3-1 as defender Jeremy Mathieu hits a first time shot just wide from a corner.

SUBSTITUTION

Granada 1-2 Barcelona

Luis Enrique makes his second change. On comes the worldly-wise Andres Iniesta for Andre Gomes. 

Hamsik levels for Napoli

Napoli 1-1 Juventus

Italian Serie A

Big news from Italy where Napoli have levelled against leaders Juventus - skipper Marek Hamsik with the goal.

Barca edge back ahead

Granada 1-2 Barcelona

What a cracking game. Barca get their noses back in front as Luis Suarez lifts the ball over the top and Paco Alcacer is there to apply the finish.

The home fans fall silent. Will Barca hold on this time?

Paco Alcacer

Another substitute finds the net.

Granada 1-1 Barcelona

How long before Luis Enrique makes another change? He knows this result as it stands will not do.

Granada 1-1 Barcelona

A huge roar inside a packed Los Carmenes as Luis Suarez concedes a free-kick which brings a Barca attack to a frustrating end.

Granada 1-1 Barcelona

How Barca could do with Lionel Messi. They desperately need another goal yet they are still regaining their composure after losing the lead. A big 30-plus minutes for Luis Enrique coming up.

Granada 1-1 Barcelona

Well, well, well. You could hear the cheers all the way in Madrid when Boga hit the net. If it stays like this then Real's lead will be four points with one game in hand.

Boga keeps his cool to level

Granada 1-1 Barcelona

Are you watching Antonio Conte?

Jeremie Boga, the 20-year-old substitute on loan from Chelsea, keeps his compsure to slide the ball beyond Marc-Andre ter Stegen after Barca's defence had been caught napping.

What a moment for the young Frenchman.

Super-sub Boga!

SUBSTITUTION

Granada 0-1 Barcelona

Granada have brought on French midfielder Jeremie Boga who is on loan from Chelsea.

Granada 0-1 Barcelona

Javier Mascherano pings the ball over the top of the Granada defence and Paco Alcacer is on to it like a flash. Another decent save from Guillermo Ochoa who is having the game of his life.

KICK-OFF

Granada 0-1 Barcelona

Barca get the game back under way.

Granada 0-1 Barcelona

A big 45 minutes coming up for both team.

Barca need the win to stay in contention for the title while Granada are eight points from safety.

Here come the teams.

Granada 0-1 Barcelona

Luis Suarez is now two behind team-mate Lionel Messi in terms of La Liga goals scored this season. That was his 23rd - can he draw level with Messi before full-time? You wouldn't bet against it with finishing like that.

HALF-TIME

Napoli 0-1 Juventus

Italian Serie A

It's half-time in Italy where leaders Juventus have the lead over third-placed Napoli - former Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira with the finish.

If it stay like that then Juve will open up an eight point lead with eight games remaining.

HALF-TIME

Granada 0-1 Barcelona

Barca are back to within two points of leaders Real Madrid - but there's a long way still to go.

Sublime from Suarez

Granada 0-1 Barcelona

It needed something special to beat Guillermo Ochoa and Luis Suarez has just delivered one of the goals of the season.

An exquisite pass by Jordi Alba finds his team-mate just outside the Granada penalty area. He takes one quick glance as Ochoa comes rushing off his line before lobbing the keeper from 18-yards. 

What a beauty.

Luis Suarez

Absolute class.

Granada 0-0 Barcelona

Crucial period for Granada. If they can reach half-time on level terms then it will do their confidence the world of good. 

PENALTY APPEAL

Granada 0-0 Barcelona

I think we're going to hear more about that penalty that was not awarded. David Lomban had his arm around Suarez's neck. Nothing given. Barca are not happy and it's getting pretty tetchy on the pitch.

Granada 0-0 Barcelona

Suarez could have had a hat-trick by now. Instead Barcelona have yet to find the breakthrough.

CLOSE!

Granada 0-0 Barcelona

Another chance for Suarez and another save from the impressive Ochoa who blocks with his body. Suarez actually does well to get his shot away as he is clearly held back by a defender. No penalty.

This is turning into a frustrating night for the visitors.

YELLOW CARD

Granada 0-0 Barcelona

A decent passage of play for Barca ends with Sergi Roberto being shown a yellow card for lunging at Hector Hernandez. No arguments from the Barca man as his name is taken.
