The home side had a series of early chances, but their opening goal came from the penalty spot after Cesc Fabregas was brought down by Pape Diakhate, allowing Andres Iniesta to convert.
Fabregas had a chance to add a second from the spot shortly before half time when Iniesta was fouled in the box, and he was able to do so.
Piti had the pick of the efforts for Granada in the first half, testing Jose Manuel Pinto with a powerful drive from 25 yards out, but the visitors rarely troubled the La Liga champions in the opening 45 minutes.

Granada looked to make a fast start to the second half, as Youssef El Arabi tried to head in from a Yacine Brahimi cross but nodded the ball just high.
The visitors continued to see more of the ball, but were reduced to 10 men in the 66th minute when Manuel Iturra was booked for the second time for a bad foul on Pedro.
The home side swiftly took advantage of the dismissal, as Neymar made a fast break, setting up Alexis Sanchez for a tap-in from deep inside the penalty area.
Piti had another good chance inside the last 15 minutes as he looked to give Granada some late hope, but Pinto looked solid in goal for Barcelona.
However, Barcelona finished strongly, resulting in Fabregas firing the ball forward for Pedro, who was able to slot it in for a fourth in stoppage time.
