Barcelona may have earned all three points against Granada on Saturday, but they were frustrated against their opponents.

Luis Enrique's side had to make do with a narrow 1-0 victory thanks to Rafinha’s acrobatic goal shortly after half-time.

The Catalan club were probably expecting a far easier afternoon - especially considering the last three results in this fixture were 4-0, 6-0 and 4-0.

However, Barcelona couldn’t give their goal difference much of a boost as they attempt to catch Real Madrid at the top of the table.

And winning by a solitary goal clearly frustrated some of the Barca players - most notably Neymar.

Towards the end of the match, Neymar was booked for a late tackle on an opponent. The Brazilian was then greeted by Granada’s Ruben Vezo who was very angry with Neymar’s challenge.

Vezo put his head towards Neymar - something he got booked for - before the two players were pulled apart by their teammates.

But the final whistle didn’t signal the end of the feud. As they were walking off at full-time, Neymar pushed Vezo down the stairs of the tunnel.

Unsurprisingly, according to Marca, this led to a scuffle in the tunnel as the pair traded insults. They claim they had to be separated as they headed to the dressing rooms but nothing further was reported.

Check out the moment Neymar dangerously pushed Vezo down the stairs:

Barcelona’s three points keeps them two points behind Real Madrid and one point ahead of both Atletico Madrid and Sevilla as this season's La Liga title race looks set to very exciting.

For now, though, attentions will now turn to the Champions League with them facing Manchester City on Tuesday. Enrique’s men have won all three of their fixtures so far and a victory at the Etihad could see them progress into the last-16.

City players better watch out in case Neymar tries pushing them down any stairs, though.
