Granada too much for B team (4-1)

Aida Soriano

Barça B suffered their fourth defeat of the season this afternoon when Granada beat them 4-1. All the hosts’ goals came from Alexandre Geijo, after an early Carmona strike.

Luis Enrique’s team found that Granada, backed by a full home stadium at the Nuevo Los Cármenes, stifled their game and in Alexandre Geijo the hosts had a striker able to put them to the sword.

Great start

Granada soon hit back though, with Oier forced to make two good stops soon after the goal. The hosts were pressuring Barca B all over the pitch and the youngsters were finding it hard to build any meaningful attacks and their threat was limited to a 27th minute header from Iñigo López from a free kick.

Comeback starts

Jonathan Dos Santos also came close to making it two after some good work from Nolito, but his weak shot was easily saved by the Granada keeper and it was the hosts who were to score, when Geijo headed in from a corner on 35 minutes. The goal gave Granada a great boost and they began to lay siege to the Barça goal, with a Nolito effort from a breakaway at the end of the half which the keeper saved, the only opportunity Barça had.

Hat trick

Luis Enrique sent on Tello and Sergi Roberto to create more danger, but Granada now sat back and let Barça come at them, whilst trying to pick them off on the break, something Geijo managed to take his hat trick on 68 minutes, just after Carmona had missed a chance to make it 2-2.

Geijo makes it four

Tello, Sergi Roberto and Muniesa all had chances to pull a goal back in the last 20 minutes, but again Geijo proved more efficient, getting his fourth as he broke through between the two centre halves on 83 minutes.

The defeat leaves Barça B on 22 points and they are fourth in the table, two points ahead of Salamanca who play tomorrow and a further two ahead of Granada, who have moved up to sixth.
