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.

Ivan Rakitic and Luis Suarez save sloppy Barcelona in Granada

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson recaps Barcelona's comfortable win over Granada.
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says Bale has been playing well despite his lack of goals.

Barcelona achieved a decisive 3-1 win away at Granada in round 25 of La Liga action on Saturday. Ivan Rakitic, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi scored for the club, who enjoyed 70 percent of possession, created 16 goal-scoring chances and attempted 16 shots, nine of them on target.

Sergio Busquets' new contract a deserved reward for Barca's quiet star

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop reveals his latest power rankings for this week, which feature Barcelona on top despite a 1-0 loss to Malaga.
Barcelona manager Luis Enrique lauded his side's first half performance as they won 2-1 at Manchester City in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 tie.
