The 16-year-old gave the home team the lead, but Ricard Sanchez tied the score with a cross from Facundo Pellistri. In a frantic six-minute span, winger Pellistri, who is on loan from Manchester United, added the second goal for the visitors, Robert Lewandowksi tied the score, and Ignasi Miquel gave Granada the lead again.
Yamal's second goal completed the score. Although Yamal's assistance was very beneficial, it turned out to be another frustrating moment for Barcelona in the title battle. Xavi's team is currently 10 points behind Real Madrid at the top of the table. They also lost the chance to close the gap on Girona, who are five points ahead of them in second place. Their display demonstrated Xavi's decision to depart the team at the end of the current campaign, as he is certain that a change of direction is necessary for the Catalan club.
