Jorge Molina revives Granada with a ‘set’ against a Mallorca in trouble


This Saturday, Granada managed to leave the relegation positions of LaLiga Santander with a vital victory in their permanence aspirations (2-6) after a fast-paced duel against RCD Mallorca, which remains on the edge of a burning zone to which It could fall this Saturday if Cádiz manages to score against Elche.

Barely six minutes had elapsed since the initial whistle when Luis Suárez picked up a loose ball in the local area that he was responsible for sending to the bottom of the goal, despite the fact that Maffeo was close to taking the shot from the Nasrid striker.

In spite of everything, Javier Aguirre’s men were not daunted and were about to equalize the contest in a triple chance by Vedat Muriqi, although it was Salva Sevilla who managed to neutralize the visitor’s goal with a right hand that gave hope to the islanders ( min.27).

As soon as the match resumed after passing through the changing rooms, Escudero put Granada ahead again with a shot at the long post that hit the woodwork before sneaking into the goal (min. 46), and Antonio Puertas increased the lead by only ten minutes then with a superb heel shot.

The vermilion team reacted immediately afterwards with a goal from Raíllo, but first Jorge Molina (min. 69) and then Myrto Uzuni (min. 78) and the striker from Alcoy -who finished the match with two goals and two assists- were in charge of clear up any hint of doubt and take the three points to Granada.

With this, the Andalusian team (34) leaves the relegation places, now two points below, precisely those that Mallorca (32) treasures, which could be doomed to the penultimate place if Cádiz (32) manages to score against Elche this Saturday at the New Mirandilla.
