Rafinha was forced to abandon Barcelona's meeting with Granada at Los Cármenes after the first 16 minutes. The Blaugrana player had signalled to the bench that he was experiencing pains in his right knee just 10 minutes after kick-off and attempted to carry on but called to be taken off just minutes later, being replaced by Paco Alcácer. Denis Suárez was also ordered to start warming up while Rafinha tired to see if he could continue.
