Is it the bottom 2 or 3 that go down?
Success and Penaranda clashing heads, Success knocked out cold
5-1 final score! A smashing win for Granada!!
A goal and assist for Success, and an assist for Peñaranda.
FT Granada-Levante 5-1. Hat-trick by El Arabi.
Well done! I hope this gives confidence for next matches.
This one was crucial to just stay away from relegation zone, but it's still just 1 point above 18th.
Two Pozzo clubs winning ... I see this as a good omen
We haven't had a full 3 yet....
Granada in deep, deep trouble. 2-1 down at Celta Vigo, with ten to go. Three games left after tonight and only see the next one at home to Las Palmas as winnable. Last two are away at Sevilla and home to Barca...
Will have to hope Sevilla play a weaken side with their Euro semi in mind..
The only saving grace is that they have a better head to head than both Sporting and Getafe. If they can beat Las Palmas I think they'll survive. Mind you it would help if they keep eleven on the pitch this time.
The first goal Granada conceded was comically bad. The defender took an unnecessary awful touch in his box, which allowed the Celta Vigo striker to touch it forward, all whilst the same defender went to hoof the ball, but ended up hoofing the striker.
They lost 2-1, not sure where that leaves them in the table though?
It baffles me how you managed to find your way onto this forum, yet still don't know how to use google.
Actually I do, but I had not looked it up at the time of posting, I only knew that they had lost, hence I mentioned that I did not know how that left them in the league in the hope someone would tell us, and TheGhostofBE did, thank you.
What I don't know is how many teams are relegated from La Liga, is it 3 like here?
Yes. 3 teams. And they use head to head record rather than goal difference to split teams on the same points.
Still think they're in real trouble due to the way the fixtures are for the teams around them. These are the remaining fixtures, home games in bold and with league positions of opposition. They have to beat Las Palmas and hope that results go their way elsewhere I think. Getafe-Sporting looks like it could be decisive...
Rayo Vallecano 35 points - Atletico (2nd), Sociedad (12th), Levante (20th)
Granada 33 points - Las Palmas (9th), Sevilla (7th), Barcelona (1st)
Sporting 32 points - Eibar (11th), Getafe (19th), Villareal (4th)
Getafe 32 points - Deportivo (14th), Sporting (18th), Betis (13th)
Levante 29 points - Malaga (10th), Atletico (2nd), Rayo (16th)
Three but unlike here head to head results count before goal difference does. Granada are good in this respect.
Nope, 6 teams.
Bad news for Grenada.
I am glad you didn't put Depor in your calculations , but I am still ****ting myself. Must beat Getafe this weekend, that should help Granada too.
Udinese just gone 3-1 down to Torino at home
5-1 FT. Appalling result.
Probably our worst season in last 20 years. We're lucky that there are (slightly) worse teams around, because never we were more worthy of relegation.
And we're not safe yet, we must hope other teams don't catch us.
Could the Pozzos be looking for 3 different managers!?
Really bad result for Granada yesterday too. They pretty much have to win today, or I think they're probably down.
1-0 down after 3 minutes... Going down.
Now 2-0 down.
more excitement in first 15 mins in this one than all watford games since arsenal in the cup
off the bar for las palmas
2-2 wow what a game
Come on Granada!
Assists for Penaranda and Doucoure
This is looking like a must win really
