Barcelona can take over the La Liga lead for the first time with a win against Granada at the Camp Nou Stadium. A home victory would lift the Catalan club a point above Atlético Madrid, which has led the league for most of season but struggled recently. Diego Simeone’s team is coming off a 2-1 loss at Athletic Bilbao. Thursday’s match was postponed earlier because of Barcelona’s participation in the Copa del Rey Final a few weeks ago.
Barcelona are coming into the match at the back of a 2-1 win over Villarreal on Sunday and Granada also won their previous league game 2-1 against Valladolid.
