Valverde: Granada a test of Barcelona credentials

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde expects a big test of their credentials at Granada.

Barcelona have failed to win either of their opening two LaLiga Santander games on the road, first losing to Athletic Club (1-0) before drawing with Osasuna (2-2).

That was followed up by a 0-0 draw at Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League in midweek and Valverde feels that all has to change.

"Away from home we are not getting good results, it is costing us," Valverde said during his press conference.

"The [Osasuna] game in Pamplona, which we turned around, we were not able to win. We have to change that dynamic.

"These kind of grounds can determine the championship because it is where you cannot slip."
