In typical fashion, The Eyebrow spoke to journalists following the match. Here are the takeaways from Carlo Ancelotti's press conference.

Barcelona's Loss to Granada:

"Barça can still win the league because there are could be many surprises. They will fight to the end. This does not change the dynamics of the game on Wednesday. I'm surprised that they lost because they have more quality than Granada."

The Victory:

"We played good football. The goal is to win because there is little left in the season. We have to win and then do the math. It is a very dangerous league because all the matches are complicated. "

Greeting the Fondo Sur:

"I thanked a group that is helping the team a lot. The atmosphere was very good. The crowd helps us and is very important in order to win these games. "

Sergio Ramos Injury Status:

"I think he can play on Wednesday. He has a neck problem but it should be fine in the coming days. "

Copa del Rey:

"Today I can't say how many of our injured players will play on Wednesday. Xabi will be back because he was only sanctioned. Cristiano is in treatment so we'll wait and see. I don't think Marcelo will make it to the Cup final. "

Substitutes for CR7:

"Nobody can take Cristiano's place. We have to find alternate solutions."

Di María's match following the BvB debacle:

"I haven't had talks with him. He missed a penalty and that always weighs. He didn't have a good game against Dortmund but has responded well today. He did very well."
