Did that come off the post? Villarreal for once are caught sleeping at the back, with Kroos' cross forcing Costa into a desperate clearance that actually looked to hit the post!
Casllas is forced into a good save! Moreno and Vietto link up really well in the final third again, with the latter getting a shot away, but the Real Madrid keeper makes the diving stop.

Wow! Ronaldo gets in behind the Villarreal backline and squares for Bale, but the Welsh winger blasts his effort well over the bar. That was almost laughable from the former Spurs man.

Off the crossbar from Bale! The Welsh winger's cross into the Villarreal penalty area catches out Asenjo and bounces off the top of the goalkeeper's bar. There's no way he meant that.
YELLOW CARD: Moi Gomez (Villarreal)
That's the closest Real Madrid have come to an opener here! Varane rises highest from a corner kick, but his headers flashes past the post. Asenjo was rooted to the spot for that one!
So close to a Villarreal opener! Casillas is first called upon to make the close range save from Moreno, then Carvajal makes the clearing header off the line from Gomez's shot. Oooft!

FULL-TIME: Granada 1-3 Barcelona. Luis Suarez stars again as Barca close the gap at the top of La Liga to a single point.
ANOTHER CHANCE! Pedro drifts in behind the Granada backline and attempts to send a cute chip over Oier. He succeeds, but his effort lacks the power to reach the goal.
CHANCE! Messi blasts at Oier with a fair chunk of goal to aim at. Should probably score.
CHANCE! Neymar attempts an unorthodox bicycle kick in the penalty area which runs through to Messi at the back stick... He's only gone and scuffed it wide.
More whistles. Suarez is departing the field of play rather slowly. He's been excellent in this second period. Pedro joins the action.
GOAL! Granada 1-3 Barca. What on earth is Suarez doing? The rejuvenated forward skips past Oier but instead of passing into the empty net, he passes to Messi for a simple tap-in. Not sure I've ever seen selflessness on that level.
YELLOW! Jeremy Mathieu goes into the book for a naughty challenge.
GOAL! Granada 0-2 Barca. Fran Rico blasts past Bravo from 12 yards. Fine penalty. Maybe this one is not over.
PENALTY TO GRANADA! Marc Bartra puts in a ridiculously lazy challenge on Lass just inside the area and seems insulted when the referee points to the spot.
GOAL! Granada 0-2 Barcelona. Suarez plays a one-two with Rakitic and pokes the return ball under Oier and over the line.
HALF-TIME: Granada 0-1 Barca. That's our lot for period number one.
MASSIVE CHANCE! The ball drops at the feet of Messi inside the six-yard box. Oier flings his limbs at the Argentine and is relieved to see the shot bounce off his leg and away from harm.
CHANCE! Marquez strolls onto the ball before, suddenly, swinging a left boot and watching his shot fly towards the far corner. Claudio Bravo is alert to turn it behind. Cracking effort.
CHANCE! Great link-up play between Rakitic and Messi opens a chance for the latter. The Argentine sends a super volley just over.
CHANCE! Marquez is fuming! The ball is perfectly placed into his path near the area, but the referee gets in his way. The Chilean blazes his awkward shot over the crossbar.
CHANCE! Almost an instant response from Granada. The ball falls invitingly to Lass about 10 yards from goal and he crashes an effort narrowly over.
GOAL! Granada 0-1 Barca. Suarez scuffs a cross along the six-yard box which Juan Cala can only divert into the path of Rakitic, who can't miss.
CHANCE! The ball spirals through the Granada sky towards Marquez, who sends an audacious header towards goal. Over. Just.
CHANCE! Xavi forces a good stop from Oier after fine work from Suarez on the left.
YELLOW! Luis Suarez rolls his opponent and sends the limpest arm into his opponent. The reaction is ridiculous and earns the Uruguayan a booking.
YELLOW! Javi Marquez goes into the book for a poor foul.
