Teenage winger Lamine Yamal’s two goals helped Barcelona salvage a draw in a high-scoring match against La Liga strugglers Granada.

The 16-year-old opened the scoring for the hosts, but Granada’s Ricard Sanchez leveled the game. Further goals from on-loan Manchester United winger Facundo Pellistri and Ignasi Miquel put Granada in the lead, only for Robert Lewandowski to equalize for Barcelona. Yamal’s second goal ensured that the match ended in a 3-3 draw.

Despite Yamal’s strong performance, Barcelona’s title hopes took another blow as they now sit 10 points adrift of league leaders Real Madrid. Additionally, Barcelona missed the chance to close the gap on second-placed Girona.

The match highlighted Barcelona’s defensive weaknesses, with Granada looking capable of scoring at will against the vulnerable Barcelona defense. The performance reinforced Xavi’s decision to leave the club at the end of the season, emphasizing the need for a change of direction.

The draw against Granada adds to Barcelona’s recent disappointment, as they struggle to keep up with their title rivals. The team will need to address their defensive vulnerabilities and regroup as they aim to salvage their season in the coming games in La Liga.
