Murillo's three games against Barça

Murillo's three games against Barça

Colombian centre back faced Catalans three times from 2013 to 2014 when playing for Granada

Jeison Murillo, who has just joined Barça, has faced FC Barcelona on three occasions in the past, all between 2013 and 2014 when the Colombian defender was playing for Granada.

The first of those was on 23 November 2013, the day that the Camp Nou hailed Lionel Messi after he’d collected the third of what are now five Golden Shoes. Barça won 4-0 that day, with Martín Montoya on the pitch and Oier Olazábal on the bench, both of whom he would later be joined by at Granada..

Murillo and his team had considerably better fortune when the sides met again on 12 April 2014. Granada stunned Tata Martino’s Barça 1-0 at the Nuevo Los Cármenes.

Early in the following season, on 27 September 2014, Barça were able to avenge that loss in style by cruising to 6-0 victory at Camp Nou with goals from Neymar (3), Messi (2) and Ivan Rakitic. For more on Murillo, read our did you know?
