GRANADA - BARCELONA
Barcelona play Granada knowing a win will secure La Liga title
The Catalan side know that they can secure the league today (KO 17:00 CEST). The team put their trust in Messi to deliver the title that seemed already won.
Nuevo Los Carmenes is the setting, Granada and Barcelona are the protagonists and LaLiga, the plot. The ending of the story depends on the eleven players on stage. The title drama reaches its final act in the land of Federico García Lorca amid rumours, conspiracies without proof, a team that has nothing to play for and another with everything at stake. All of this emotion surrounds one football game – ninety minutes of possible suffering at the foot of the Sierra Nevada.
The club is aware that the destination of the league is in its own hands. It depends only on its own performance. If it wins, there will be no tragedy, but it knows that behind every seemingly routine script is a subplot and often a twist. Possibly the twist has already been witnessed, with Barça losing their comfortable grasp on the title in just a couple of nervous weeks. They still have most of their nail-bitten fingers on the trophy but have unveiled the trap-door which can be triggered by just a stroke of bad luck or an heroic performance from the underdog, Granada.
The attacking trident will led by a Messi, the man who has played various roles in recent days. As the main star he has scored; as supporting actor he has assisted; he has directed the play throughout.
There are whispers and doubts but Granada has its honour, which is no small thing in this part of Andalusia. Fight against the odds, cause an upset, stand up and be counted. This could be a defining moment in your history. The audience awaits the moment of truth.
