GRIEZMANN'S HEADER ON 84’ SCORED THE GOAL AGAINST GRANADA

Well-deserved victory at Los Cármenes

Griezmann scored the goal of an important victory in Granada with a goal in the final stretch of the match. Ochoa had been in charge of avoiding our team from scoring in the second half with several worthy saves but he could not stop the goal by the Frenchman, who continues adding week after week.

Referee: Hernández Hernández (Las Palmas Committee). Roja por doble Red for double yellow to Wakaso (72’ and 93’). Booked the home players Saunier (24’), Ingasson (48’) and Foulquier (68’); and the visiting Carrasco (57’), Juanfran (80’) and Godín (91’).

THE GOAL:

0-1. 84’. Griezmann heads to the net a measured cross by Koke from the left after a corner kick.

There were few chances in the first half in which Griezmann and Carrasco, with a header each, were close to scoring. The one who did score was Carrasco, but the goal was disallowed for offside. The home team had their best chance in Wakaso's cross – a shot that Oblak saved.

The second half began very intensely and the chances to score were ours. Carrasco forced Ochoa to work with a low shot, then it was Griezmann who crashed his shot in the side of the net and Carrasco tried again but his shot whistled past the post. Koke and Correa saw how their shots were saved by Granada’s keeper. But Griezmann was saving a chance for the final stretch and his header was critical.
