Granada are still not out of danger after a 1-2 defeat against a depleted Real Madrid, and they need to get at least a draw out of their last match at Rayo Vallecano to be sure of staying up. In accordance with tradition the Andalusians applauded the league winners on to the pitch at the start. Four minutes later though they were ahead, Franco Jara winning the ball off Marcelo in his own half and running the length of the pitch to fire a shot under the legs of Adán. Soon afterwards Ighalo should have made it two, Adán pushing out his first shot and Marcelo clearing his follow up off the line with the keeper beaten. But Madrid gradually came back, Ronaldo heading over a couple of times before the break and Benzema and Ronaldo bringing good saves out of Julio César after the interval. Granada held on though until ten minutes from the end, when Ronaldo converted a penalty after Moisés Hurtado had rugby tackled him in the area, and with the game already in injury time David Cortés inexplicably turned Benzema's cross in to his own net. A couple of minutes later Clos Gómez blew the final whistle before the home side could take a corner, and the nerves got the better of the local players, Siqueira and Hurtado being shown red cards for insulting the referee, and Dani Benítez facing a major ban after throwing a bottle at the official. A missed opportunity though for Abel Resino's side, and the last weekend will not be for the faint-hearted.
