Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde then introduced Lionel Messi and Ansu Fati at half-time, but Alvaro Vadillo doubled the lead from the penalty spot after Arturo Vidal handled the ball in the box.

The result leaves Barcelona three points behind Granada in seventh and they have now failed to score in six of their last seven Liga away matches.

Valverde’s side have yet to win on the road in 2019-20, having lost away to Athletic Club on the opening weekend and drawn games at Osasuna and Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
