CHANCE FOR PIQUE! Oooooh that could have been the winner! Araujo is now out on the wing, he gets the cross into the middle, Pique was nearly on the end of it, but the clearance is made!
There will be four minutes of stoppage time played at the end of the match.
Can Barcelona find a winner? They have momentum, they are piling players forward and Granada are holding on for dear life. They would snap your hand off for a point now.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Barcelona 1 (90 mins - Ronald Araujo) Granada 1. An equaliser in the 90th minute! Araujo wins the first header into the box, Pique plays the pass to Gavi who then chips the cross back into the Barcelona centre back and he heads into the back of the net! Drama at the Camp Nou!
- Yellow cardRonald AraújoFC Barcelona
And now Araujo is shown a yellow card for his part in a bit of a scuffle.
- Yellow cardLuís MaximianoGranada CF
Maximiano is shown a yellow card for yet more time-wasting from the away side.
It was notable that Pique indicated to the home crowd inside the Camp Nou to give de Jong their support after missing that last opportunity. This is a pretty desperate situation.
This is desperate stuff from Barcelona. There's no real structure to what they are doing. They are just piling players into the box and hoping that a chance will come of one of the crosses.
HOW DID HE MISS?! Oh dear. That was a sitter. That should have been the equaliser. De Jong has somehow managed to head over the bar from only a few yards out. Wow. He should have scored!
Antoine Griezmann left Barcelona on transfer deadline day, with the French attacker securing a return to Atletico Madrid. He never found his best form at the Camp Nou. Another player they could use tonight!
Sergio Aguero has yet to make his competitive debut for Barcelona after arriving from Manchester City in the summer. The Argentine is expected to be sidelined until November. Barca could have used him here!
- OffLuis AbramGranada CF
- OnGerman SanchezGranada CF
Another change for Granada with Sanchez on for the final 10 minutes.
- Yellow cardÓscar MinguezaFC Barcelona
It's a yellow card for Mingueza and the home fans don't like that at all!
- OffYusuf DemirFC Barcelona
- OnGerard PiquéFC Barcelona
Pique has also been thrown on by Koeman. Will he go up front as an emergency striker?!
- OffSergio BusquetsFC Barcelona
- OnRiqui PuigFC Barcelona
Here comes Puig for Barcelona. Can he create something out of nothing?
Martin Braithwaite is another player who is currently sidelined for Barcelona. While the Danish striker has been a figure of fun at the Camp Nou, he always contributes. He deserves more credit.
The good news, in terms of injuries, for Barcelona is that Ansu Fati is getting closer to returning. The Catalans have missed their teenage sensation. He’s been out for a long time.
PICTURE: How long will this sentiment last if this ends in defeat?
This isn't looking good for Barcelona. They have now gone 222 minutes without a goal. They are struggling to get things going in the attacking third. Can they turn this around?
- Yellow cardMaxime GonalonsGranada CF
Gonalons hasn't been on the pitch for long, but he has already been booked.
Barcelona had to wait three weeks between La Liga games. Their fixture against Sevilla last weekend was postponed after so many players travelled to South American during the international week.
- OffAntonio PuertasGranada CF
- OnMaxime GonalonsGranada CF
Gonalons is also on for Granada as they edge closer to a massive result.
- OffJorge MolinaGranada CF
- OnLuis SuárezGranada CF
Moreno makes a change and Suarez is on for Granada. Barca could use the other Suarez right now...
While Barcelona are undoubtedly at their weakest point for over a decade, there are those who believe Koeman still has the talent to mount a La Liga title challenge this season.
Dest is a very strong attacker and gives Barcelona a good outlet down the right side of the pitch, but the American international needs to prove himself on the defensive side.
Busquets remains a crucial part of this Barcelona team, but he can no longer cover the ground he used to. The veteran midfielder needs help in the centre of the pitch.
- OffPhilippe CoutinhoFC Barcelona
- OnPablo GaviFC Barcelona
Another change for Barcelona as Gavi comes on for Coutinho.
MEMPHIS... over the top! That might have been Barcelona's best chance of the match! The cross bounced through to Memphis at the back post, but he shoots over the crossbar on the swivel!
Part of the problem for Koeman at the moment is that he lacks the sort of players who can press high on opponents. This was very clear in the loss to Bayern Munich when Barca were very passive.
Memphis with the shot! For the first time in the match, Memphis had space inside the area after good play by Dest, but Granada quickly had three players around him to make the block!
Close from Araujo! The Barcelona centre back gets on the end of another set piece delivery into the box, but this time Araujo's header flashes wide! He has come close twice now!
Pedri is so important to the way Barcelona play, but he has played so much football over the last 12 months that an injury at some point always seemed likely. He is at risk of burnout!
Barcelona’s injury problems were not helped by the set-backs suffered by Jordi Alba and Pedri in the Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich last week. Both players were key.
There is more urgency to Barcelona's play at the start of the second half. They need to keep this up. Anything less than a win tonight could spell serious trouble for Koeman.
Memphis goes for the acrobatic! The cross was played to the back post where Memphis had peeled away from his marker, the Dutchman goes for the overhead, but couldn't make contact!
- OffSergio EscuderoGranada CF
- OnCarlos NevaGranada CF
Granada have also made a change with Neva on for the away side.
- OffSergi RobertoFC Barcelona
- OnLuuk de JongFC Barcelona
Koeman has made a change for the start of the second half with de Jong coming on for Barcelona!
The second half is under way! Granada have a 1-0 lead over Barcelona in this La Liga fixture.
HALF TIME: Barcelona 0-1 Granada. Duarte's goal is the difference between the two teams. Barca have been poor on the whole, but they at least applied some pressure at the end of the half!
For the first time in the match, Granada are rocking! They need this half time whistle while the whistle will come at the worst time for Barca who are growing in confidence!
There will be four minutes of stoppage time played at the end of the first half.
WHAT A SAVE! That is an astonishing save by Maximiano! Araujo surely thought he'd found the back of the net with a powerful header from a Memphis freekick, but the goalkeeper saves!
The reaction inside the Camp Nou to that last change was interesting. They were not aware of the injury to Balde and believed the youngster had been hooked by Koeman! They were chanting his name.
Molina with the shot! The ball sat up nicely for the Granada forward, his strike was a powerful one, but ter Stegen makes the save and Barcelona scramble away the danger from the rebound!
- OffAlex BaldeFC Barcelona
- OnÓscar MinguezaFC Barcelona
There's the change with Mingueza on for Bale whose debut ends after just 40 minutes!
- Yellow cardÁngel MontoroGranada CF
Montoro picks up a yellow card for a foul on Busquets in the centre of the pitch.
It looks like Koeman might be about to make a change here. Mingueza has been called to the touchline, but who will he come on for? This will be an interesting one at the end of the first half!
There's just no way through for Barcelona at the moment. They are seeing a lot of the ball, but Granada are playing with a back five and a midfield four and are closing up the gaps.
Another Granada player goes down. It will be interesting to see how much stoppage time is added on at the end of the first half. The visitors are not slow to resort to time-wasting!
PICTURE: Duarte's goal is the difference
This has been nowhere near good enough by Barcelona so far. They have created barely anything while Granada have been able to keep them at arm's length in this first half.
Granada are without a win in any of their last nine La Liga games. They are struggling for points at the moment, but they are playing well here and are on course for a victory!
Araujo has a problem! And now it's Barcelona who might be forced into a change with Araujo suggesting to the bench that he has some sort of back problem. That's one to keep an eye on!
- OffYan EtekiGranada CF
- OnÁngel MontoroGranada CF
Here is the change with Montoro coming on for the injured Eteki.
This feels like time-wasting by Granada. Eteki isn't going to be able to continue, his injury is genuine, but the way he is disrupting the match is very much a ploy. The fans are getting frustrated!
Eteki will have to come off! Eteki went off the pitch for some treatment for an injury, then he returned, but the Granada player is once again down on the ground. He will have to be replaced.
That was strange defending from Dest who gives away a corner kick when he didn't really need to. Barcelona haven't clicked into gear yet. They look scrambled by the shock opener.
PICTURE: Duarte headed home the opener!
Granada are showing no fear here. Even with Barcelona looking more potent, the away side are retaining their threat on the counter attack. They want to score a second goal!
Despite their recent struggles, the omens are still good for Barcelona this evening. They are unbeaten in 34 of their last 38 La Liga games at home. Granada, however, have the lead!
While the start of the season has been difficult for Barcelona, Memphis Depay has enjoyed a strong start to life at the club. The Dutch attacker is already a key figure for the Catalans.
Off the crossbar! Inches away from being an equaliser for Barcelona with Roberto crashing a strike against the woodwork! This is better from the home side who are pressing for a leveller!
Granada are still more than holding their own after going ahead. Memphis has seen a lot of the ball, Barcelona are asking him to produce something, but it's been difficult for the Dutchman.
There is a genuine tension and edge around the Camp Nou. It was there even before Granada took the lead! It feels like the pressure is having an impact on the match.
PICTURE: Granada have the lead!
While Barcelona have seen more of the ball in these early exchanges, Granada have looked the more dangerous of the two teams in the attacking third. They should be 2-0 up!
Big chance for a second! Granada spurn a great opportunity to double their advantage! Molina got on the end of a cross into the middle, but he sticks his finish over the crossbar when he should have tested ter Stegen!
Jordi Cruyff has been mentioned as a potential replacement for Koeman. Would that really be such a wise move? Cruyff has experience as a technical director, but not as a head coach!
Koeman is under a lot of pressure coming into this match. There have been reports that Barcelona might even replace the Dutchman as manager should they fail to win this evening.
Tuesday night last week was a rough one for Barca as they were soundly beaten 3-0 by Bayern Munich on their own pitch. It was a result that really heightened the scrutiny.
How will Barcelona respond to going behind so early on? There were some whistles around the Camp Nou after the ball hit the back of the net. Then there were some chants of 'Barca, Barca!'
The TV cameras show Koeman and he does not look amused at all. This is a hugely important game for Barcelona and they are already trailing winless Granada in the early stages.
- GoalDomingos DuarteGranada CF
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Barcelona 0 Granada 1 (3 mins - Domingos Duarte). It's the worst possible start for Barcelona! They have fallen behind early on! The cross was played to the back post by Escudero, de Jong gets caught underneath the delivery and Duarte was on hand to head home into the empty net!
What sort of match will we get this evening? There is pressure on Barcelona to perform after their dismantling at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week.
The match is under way! Barcelona are up against Granada in this La Liga fixture!
Okay, here we go. We are about to get under way at the Camp Nou. Kick off is just moments away!
Not long until kick off at the Camp Nou. Roberto Moreno is struggling as Granada boss. This would be a good place to turn that around.
The two teams are in the tunnel at the Camp Nou. Barcelona will be expected to win this one, but Granada have won recently at this famous old stadium!
Not only is Coutinho included in the Barcelona lineup, there's also a place for Demir. The youngster has been given the chance to show what he can do from the start!
Coutinho starts! The headline news for Barcelona this evening is that Philippe Coutinho is in the lineup. The Brazilain is available again after a long injury layoff. Can he make a difference?
