Jorge Molina has scored 10 goals in the League and two in the Cup. Top scorer of the team ahead of Luis Suárez who has eight. Beyond these figures is the profitability because, every time the Alcoyano scores, Granada adds points. gold points.
Let’s take a look. On matchday 11 he scored a goal that rescued a point against Getafe at 97′. Four days later he scored a goal in the 2-2 against Athletic in San Mamés and in the 17th he saved another point in the Carranza against Cádiz in the 88th minute. His three goals in the 4-1 against Mallorca on matchday 18 ensured three points. Not to mention another three points with his 2-1 win over Atlético on 12-22-2012. He was the initiator of the equalizer against Rayo in a match that was lost 0-2 with one of his opportune goals in the worst moments. And three more points in the 2-6 against Mallorca, without a doubt his favorite victim, in Son Moix, against which he scored two new goals.
