Nyom: Granada ‘not in same league’

Granada defender Allan Nyom admits the Andalucian outfit face a gargantuan task when they take on Barcelona this weekend.

The French-born Cameroon international will travel to the Camp Nou with his Granada teammates looking to end the Catalans' perfect start to the season in La Liga, but the odds are against Juan Antonio Anquela's side, who have collected just two points from their first four outings.

“They are not from the same league as us, but we will try to do the best we can,” was Nyom's stark assessment of Saturday's encounter, which Granada go into on the back of a 1-1 draw at home to Deportivo last Sunday.

“We are ok, the league has just begun but it is important that we start picking up points now, especially against sides of the same level as us. We have to win our next home game. We still need to improve in defence and stop conceding goals.”

Granada went down 5-3 in last season's corresponding fixture.
