Suarez, Rakitic and Bravo prove their worth in Barcelona's win over Granada

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson recaps Barcelona's comfortable win over Granada.

Barcelona had to rely on Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic and Claudio Bravo, three of their summer signings, on Saturday to beat Granada and make sure they kept pace with Real Madrid at the top of La Liga. The trio provided further proof that the club's former Sporting Director Andoni Zubizarreta got something right in preseason, despite being sacked by the club in January.

Three points were just what the doctor ordered for Barcelona at Granada, and although the 3-1 win was hard fought, certain players...

Barcelona tough it out to earn a valuable three points vs. Granada

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson recaps Barcelona's comfortable win over Granada.

GRANADA, Spain -- Three quick thoughts from Barcelona's 3-1 win over Granada in La Liga at the Nuevo Los Carmenes on Saturday.

1. Barcelona tough it out

Barcelona were far from their fluid best here, but goals from Ivan Rakitic, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi were enough to get three valuable points, with Granada's reply coming from a second-half Javi Marquez penalty.

Barca had warning of how difficult it can be coming to the Nuevo Los Carmenes, where Granada were unbeaten in six games since...

Barcelona have no excuses if they miss Copa del Rey finals

Barcelona manager Luis Enrique says his side will play to win their Copa del Rey semi-final second leg against Villarreal, despite holding a 3-1 lead.

Despite Villarreal having traditionally been a tough nut for Barcelona to crack, Luis Enrique has in fact led his team to three victories in as many matches against them this season. Sure, past results count for very little in modern football, but having won both league matches will surely give the Blaugranas a slight mental edge which could prove crucial in decisive moments.

Fortunately, Barca are back on track, having recovered some of the momentum they lost when they were shockingly defeated by...

Lionel Messi voted ESPN FC Player of the Month for February

The ESPN FC crew believe Lionel Messi is the front-runner for February's Player of the Month, but question the omission of in-form Wolfsburg striker, Bas Dost.

Europe's top performers for February were whittled down to a three-man shortlist in consultation with WhoScored.com and ESPN FC's writers.

Lionel Messi, Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery were those in contention, despite the vociferous protestations from Craig Burley that Bas Dost should've been included for the February award. And, for the second time this season, Barcelona's No. 10 has been named ESPN FC's Player of the Month.

Messi's second victory comes just as his first did: in a landslide. The...

Marcos Rojo celebrates Estudiantes goal wildly in Barcelona shirt

After enduring a tricky start to his Manchester United career, perhaps it is fair that Marcos Rojo celebrated so boisterously as he watched his first professional club, Estudiantes, beat fierce rivals Gimnasia. Quite why he did so while flaunting an FC Barcelona vest is another question ...

The Argentina defender clearly had some pent-up frustration to relieve as he celebrated Ezequiel Cerutti's late penalty in a 3-1 victory for Estudiantes on Sunday. But is his heart really set on a move to Camp...

ESPN FC Player of the Month -- Messi, Robben or Ribery?

The ESPN FC crew compare Arjen Robben's remarkable season to the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Diego Costa, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. These were the only three to win the ESPN FC Player of the Month award prior to the month of January, when our poll was overrun by Newcastle supporters and Remy Cabella's name was added to the list. Newcastle's French attacker won't have the chance to repeat, but Messi does have the opportunity to keep the list of recipients a short one.
