Ronald Koeman’s position as Barcelona coach became even more fragile on Monday as g Ronald Araujo’s late header was only enough to rescue a 1-1 draw at home to struggling Granada. Granada were ahead inside two minutes and while Araujo’s equaliser gave Barca a dramatic finish at Camp Nou, the whistles from the home fans at the final whistle indicated a point was far from enough. Barca have now won only two of their opening five games of the season and Koeman’s future looks increasingly uncertain, particularly on the back of last week’s 3-0 drubbing at home to Bayern Munich.
There were 85 seconds on the clock when Domingos Duarte headed Granada in front. Sergio Escudero was quickest to his cleared corner and he beat Sergio Busquets twice, once to the ball and then again to the line where he fed Duarte, who nipped in front of Frenkie de Jong at the back post.
