Not Messi, not Suarez, not Neymar. Rafinha was the unsung hero for Barcelona on Saturday against Granada at the Camp Nou, rifling in an overhead bicycle kick goal to open the second half that led to a 1–0 win.
After some nice passing led to a frustrating miss off the post from Neymar, a helpful ricochet popped back up toward Rafinha, who after laying off for the shot wound up finishing himself. The acrobatic kick held for the victory on a day where Barcelona was not at its best, particularly against a last-place opponent.
Barca sits behind Real Madrid by two points through ten matches as the rivals again pursue the La Liga title. Atletico Madrid and Sevilla are a point behind them.
