The visitors punished the Catalan giants' sluggishness and poor defense in the 79th minute through Jorge Molina's strike.

Despite trying to push hard for an equaliser and at least try to salvage a point, Granada held on to their lead for rest of the play time and took all the three points away from home.

Barcelona's clash against Atlectico Madrid could we'll be the decider if Real Madrid drop points in their remaining games.
