Barcelona jeered by fans after 3-3 La Liga draw

Barcelona heard from their fans again after their chances of defending the Spanish league title took another hit.

Barcelona were jeered at home following a 3-3 draw against second-to-last Granada on Sunday (Monday AEDT).

The setback saw the Catalan club move 10 points behind leaders Real Madrid, who defeated second-placed Girona 4-0 on Saturday.

Barcelona trail Girona by five points and are three ahead of fourth-placed Atletico Madrid, who lost 1-0 at Sevilla.

The draw is likely to add more pressure on Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez, who recently said he will not return after the end of the season.

"It was already tough for us in the league, and now it's two points tougher," Xavi said.

"It's a big gap, but we are not going to throw in the towel. We have to stop making mistakes."

Barcelona were heavily favoured to win against a Granada team that have only one win in their past 13 matches in all competitions.

Teenager Lamine Yamal was the man of the match for Barcelona, scoring twice.

"We tried until the end but couldn't get the win," the 16-year-old said.

"It's another missed opportunity, but we have to keep fighting. There are still many matches remaining and the teams at the top could still stumble."

Lamal opened the scoring in the 14th minute before Granada rallied with goals by Ricard Sanchez in the 43rd and Facundo Pellistri in the 60th.

Robert Lewandowski equalised in the 63rd minute and Ignasi Miquel put the visitors ahead again in the 66th, before Yamal levelled the match with a low shot into the corner in the 80th minute.

Granada hasn't won in five straight league matches, with three losses and two consecutive draws in their past two games.

They stayed in 19th place, seven points from safety.

Meanwhile, Sevilla continued their recovery with a 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid that ended a 10-match winless streak at home and moved them further away from the relegation zone.

Isaac Romero scored a 15th-minute winner to give Sevilla their second straight league victory after a run of five winless matches, which included four losses.

Sevilla hadn't won in eight league games, matching their worst ever winless streak in the competition from back in the 1960s.

The victory lifted Sevilla to 15th place, six points from the relegation zone.

Atletico increased their winless streak to three matches in all competitions and saw their title chances in the Spanish league diminish.

Diego Simeone's team stayed in fourth place, 13 points from leaders Real Madrid, who routed second-placed Girona 4-0 at home on Saturday.

In other action, Jaime Mata scored twice, including an 89th-minute winner, in Getafe's 3-2 victory over Celta Vigo at home.

Getafe stayed in 10th place, while Rafa Benitez's Celta, who rallied from two goals down after the 71st minute, stayed 17th, three points clear from the relegation zone.

Vedat Muriqi scored a minute into stoppage time as Mallorca defeated Rayo Vallecano 2-1 to move into 16th place, six points clear of danger.

Rayo, without a win in seven matches in all competitions, dropped to 14th place with their third straight league loss.
