The Valencia grave in the second part to a combative Granada

He Valencia he took the three points at stake against him Pomegranate (2-0) thanks to the goals of Daniel Wass Y Ferran Torres, the latter in the added time, in an intense second half in which the locals were better than a combative rival who lacked an offensive mordant.

Valencia returned to repeat the script of a good part of the games of the present course and, after a discreet first part, played a more intense and effective second half with which it managed to bend to Granada.

Without either of the two teams being able to take control of the game, it was Valencia who looked the most through the rival area in the first quarter of an hour, although unable to materialize their chances.

Although Granada tried to control the game, it failed to make a profit on the possession of the ball because Valencia quickly recovered the ball to go against it with some danger.

The game reached half an hour of play with very balanced forces, although with Valencia with a bit more offensive presence before a well positioned opponent who barely conceded opportunities.

In the 35th minute, injury problems in Valencia returned to live a new chapter and Kondogbia was forced to leave the field. The lateral Jaume Costa entered, while Wass moved from the lateral to the center of the field to take the position of the Frenchman.

In the final stretch of the first half, Valencia wandered the most dangerous goal of Rui Silva, who in the added time had an outstanding intervention against a good shot from Wass from afar that ended a first half with hardly any game.

After five minutes of the second half, physical problems forced Albert Celades to make another change and it was Rodrigo Moreno who retired with discomfort and gave way to Frenchman Kevin Gameiro.

Valencia, through Parejo, scored in the 55th minute, but after the goal was accepted by the referee in the first instance, he finally annulled it after consulting the VAR when considering that a positional offside of Maxi Gómez reduced vision to the visiting goalkeeper .

Although Granada had come out focused on the second half, the voided goal altered the game. Valencia was better, but with too much hurry in the handling of the ball and although it did not create very clear occasions its approaches generated a sense of danger.

The Valencian harassment had its reward. In minute 73, a center of Gameiro to the area that Maxi Gomez failed to finish was controlled with the chest by Wass, who beat Rui Silva, although the goal again had the suspense of the VAR, but with a happy ending for the local.

After the goal, Granada opened in search of a draw and it was Valencia who waited in their field with the intention of hunting a backlash with which to liquidate the game. Thus came his second goal in the added time through the mediation of Ferran Torres, although before the referee annulled another offside to the Valencians.
