Luis Suárez celebrates Granada’s first goal against Osasuna.

He Pomegranate achieved his eighth victory of the season and becomes strong in seventh position by winning at the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes by 2-0 at Osasuna, which accumulates twelve games without winning and is still in the relegation zone, in a match corresponding to the fourth day of LaLiga Santander that was postponed in september.

Two goals scored after two corner kicks in the first half, one from the Colombian Luis Suárez and the other from the Venezuelan Darwin Machís with the help of goalkeeper Sergio Herrera after a closed shipment, allowed the Granadans to overcome an Osasuna unable to react, or even create clear chances, in the second half.

Despite the fact that the first dangerous arrival to the areas was carried out by the Osasuna team and ended with a header outside the Argentine Jonathan Calleri, the Granada team dominated the first half hour of a game that was stuck and unattractive in the first half.

After two distant shots poorly directed by the visitor Rubén García and by the local Pepe Sánchez, who at the last minute entered the rojiblanca line-up by the Frenchman Dimitri Foulquier, Granada clung to the set pieces to put the shock very to their favor.

A powerful shot from Luis Suárez, after a cross from Machís after a short corner kick, allowed Granada to score 1-0 in the 22nd minute, while in the added of the first half another direct and closed delivery from the corner of Machís put the 2-0 when Sergio Herrera finished introducing the ball with one foot, almost when it entered, into his goal.

Between one and the other, Sergio Herrera had avoided the second local goal when he came out the winner in a heads-up against Machís himself, and Osasuna had an attempt to react by stepping further on the rival field, but putting the local goal in trouble only with a long shot from Jon Moncayola.

After the break, the visitors went out for alls, with good shots from Rubén García and Roberto Torres that forced the Portuguese Rui Silva to shine.

The Navarrese team had much more the ball in the second half than Granada, clinging to his defensive order to keep his income and quick cons to try to expand it, although those of Jagoba Arrasate were not able to convert their dominance on clear occasions.

Rui Silva again showed himself safe before a hard shot by Lucas Torró to the despair of a red box that was as impetuous until the end as powerless and harmless in the face of the good defensive network of the locals.
