REAL VALLADOLID 1 GRANADA 2 Granada's license to dream and Valladolid continues in its nightmare

Granada is experiencing a dream season, with permanence practically tied, the name of the Nasrid city has walked through Europe facing rivals such as PSV or Naples and on Thursday they will visit Old Trafford to challenge Manchester United. 14 or 15 First-class teams would like to be able to enjoy that experience, including Real Valladolid, which, however, is still engaged in the fight to avoid relegation and dreams of being Granada soon. As Ronaldo Nazario, the owner of the Blanquivioleta club, said: “In five years we can be playing in Europe.” It is far away because the pucelanos lost a duel that they started winning with a penalty converted by Orellana. However, the Nasrid came up in the last minutes and took the three points.

Granada came out strong looking for Masip's goal that surprised the local team. In the first 10 minutes Eteki, Machis and Quini tried their luck without hitting a target. The pucelanos were overwhelmed by the intensity from Granada that did not hurt on both sides and even took advantage of the pucelana pie to finish off in the small area as the Cameroonian did. With the third scare, the Blanquivioleta team woke up that began to strike down the left wing with the double “O” to hurt their rival. Orellana originated a great play that remained at Guardiola's feet, but his shot was cleared by Rui Silva and the rejection came to Toni who was not right. Real Valladolid warned, Olaza also insisted that he placed a ball on Guardiola's head, who finished off at the Portuguese's hands. The pucelana improvement was awarded with a penalty from Vallejo to Kodro. Orellana, an insurance from 11 meters, was right and placed as the top scorer in Pucelano, with five goals, just before the break and almost coinciding with the new injury of Javi Sánchez, who with tears in his eyes retired to rest.

In the second half, Granada came out with the intention of getting closer to Masip's goal- In this way, Machis began to put Janko in difficulties on his wing, warning with a shot that went just over the crossbar. Puertas also commanded her upstairs by a little, but the Andalusian dominance was evident. Real Valladolid wanted nothing to happen and did not play anything except in a shot, another one, to the crossbar of Kodro, while those of Diego Martínez did not stop in their attempt. So much so that Molina tied in the 77th minute after a beautiful play by Foulquier. The visitors who were able to get ahead through Luis Suárez, who crossed the shot too much, were not satisfied, although the one who did not forgive was Quini from the front of the area to overtake his own. Real Valladolid had no reaction, which has already lost 11 points after the 80th minute and Machis was still able to increase the advantage to charge his team with morale.
