Barrada was born in Provins, France. After playing three years with Paris Saint-Germain FC's reserves, he moved to Spain in 2010 and joined Getafe CF, initially being assigned to the reserves which were playing for the first time ever in Segunda División B. On 14 March 2011, he signed his first professional contract with the Madrid outskirts team, and proved essential as the B's eventually retained their league status at the end of the season.
On 28 August 2011, Barrada made his La Liga debut with Getafe, starting and playing 60 minutes in a 1–1 home draw against Levante UD. He was immediately propelled into manager Luís García's starting XI.
On 6 November 2011, Barrada scored his first goal for Getafe's main squad, helping the hosts – who played more than 60 minutes with ten players – to a 3–2 home win against Atlético Madrid. In the following month, on the 17th, he netted twice in a 2–1 success at RCD Mallorca.
Barrada scored four goals in 32 games in both of his seasons with the club, helping it to consecutive midtable positions (11th and 10th).

On 6 July 2013, Barrada joined UAE Arabian Gulf League side Al Jazira Club, signing a four-year contract. The following summer, he agreed to a four-year deal with Olympique de Marseille for a reported €4.5 million.
In only his second appearance in Ligue 1, Barrada scored his first goal in the competition, coming on as a 87th-minute substitute in the home fixture against OGC Nice and scoring for a 4–0 victory. His second arrived early into the 2015–16 season, as he contributed to a 6–0 demolition of Troyes AC also at the Stade Vélodrome.
Barrada earned his first cap for Morocco on 29 February 2012, playing 86 minutes in a 2–0 friendly win over Burkina Faso. Also that year, he was part of the under-23 squad at the Summer Olympic Games, scoring in a 2–2 draw against Honduras in an eventual group stage exit.
