FC Barcelona almost pulled off a exceptional comeback of their La Liga fixture towards Granada on the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes on Sunday, October 8.
However, their efforts resulted in a 2-2 draw, marked by a controversial determination by the officers that disallowed what may have been a game-winning objective for the Blaugrana.
The breakthrough almost got here for Barca when Joao Felix thought he had scored a dramatic late winner in damage time. However, his objective was disallowed on account of a marginal offside name towards Ferran Torres.
Barcelona boss Xavi expressed skepticism concerning the essential name that prevented them from taking the next spot within the La Liga desk.
“Just as the referee can rule out João Felix’s goal, he can also give it. I think Torres doesn’t interfere, whether Ferran jumps or not, the ball goes to the same place. Who is he interfering with?,” the 43-year-old tactician remarked.
Lamine Yamal makes historical past
Trailing by two targets scored by Granada ahead Bryan Zaragoza simply earlier than halftime, Barcelona’s teenage prodigy Lamine Yamal lowered the deficit in damage time, offering a glimmer of hope.
The essential objective wasn’t simply some other one – the Spanish winger turned the youngest goalscorer in La Liga historical past with the strike at simply 16 years and 87 days.
Full-back Sergio Roberto then leveled the sport within the eighty fifth minute, setting the stage for each groups to scramble for a possible game-winning objective within the match’s dying moments.
