El-Arabi’s double seals Granada win
Moroccan forward Youssef El-Arabi scored two as Granada claimed a massive three points with victory at Getafe to move within three points of safety in La Liga.
It took Granada 14 minutes to break the deadlock when El-Arabi coolly fired Granada ahead from the penalty spot after Edinaldo Naldo had handled the ball in the box.
However, the home side after conceding dominated much of the rest of the first half, with Pedro Leon missing a glorious chance in the 34th minute. He made amends on the stroke of half-time, curling a fine effort pass Roberto Fernandez into the bottom corner.
Granada went back in front against the run of play as El-Arabi rose high to head home Piti’s cross into the top corner on the hour mark.
The goals were El-Arabi’s sixth in as many games this season and Granada will be hoping the Moroccan can maintain a good scoring rate as they battle to beat the drop.
