Granada strolled past Elche with a 2-1 win on Sunday at the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes. Granada arrived at the game looking pick up points after losing their last game 3-2 to Huesca. Elche were able to continue their winning streak after a 1-0 win against Eibar in their last match. As the table looks today, Granada and Elche currently occupy 8th and 19th spots in the table, with 33 points and 21 points respectively after 25 matches.

Granada started strong and were rewarded, beginning with a goal from Domingos Quina in minute 31. However, their lead was short lived, with an equalizer from a Lucas Boye just before half-time brought Elche level to see out the first half 1-1.

Granada continued to pile on the pressure the second half and were rewarded, thanks to a goal from Antonio Puertas in the 79th minute, and the game ended 2-1.
