Ernesto Valverde issues La Liga title warning ahead of Granada CF tie

FC Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde has warned his players to be ready for the challenge of Granada CF.

The defending La Liga champions head to Andalucia with two wins from their first four league games of the season, and the former Athletic Bilbao manager is firm that complacency cannot creep in against the newly promoted side.

"We are not getting the results we want away from home, and that is costing us at the moment.

"Against Osasuna, we turned the game around but could only draw in the end.

"Games away at teams like Granada CF cannot be underestimated.

"Thees types of games can determine championships, as they are not places you can afford to slip up at."

The hosts, managed by Diego Martinez, have adapted well on their return to the Spanish top flight, with seven points from their first two games of 2019-20, including back-to-back wins at Celta Vigo and Espanyol.
