It took a goal from Lionel Messi to give his new Barcelona boss Quique Setien a winning start.
Barcelona ran out winners over mid-table Granada in the La Liga late game on Sunday night.
It was a dominant performance from the Catalonians. But the scoreline reflects a lackluster unaccomplished result.
With 18 shots, of which only five were on target. A massive 82% possession. Yet Setien’s side only managed to find the back of the net once.
It was a simple side-foot from Messi that found the back of the net.
Griezmann receives the ball from Messi. The French man, in turn, sends a speedily paced pass into the feet of Arturo Vidal.
Messi is making a run around the and through defenders as all this is going on

The goal is enough to put Barcelona back at the to of La Liga.
