Bottom club Deportivo are now six points away from safety after losing 0-3 to Granada on Saturday evening. Riki missed the best of chances to put the locals ahead shortly before the interval, but just a minute later the visitors took the lead, Nolito's header from Aranda's cross coming back off the crossbar and the post and going in off Marchena. Five minutes after the break Ighalo made it two after Siqueira laid the ball across, and although Riki had a strike disallowed for offside and then had an effort saved by Toño, it was Granada who scored again when Siqueira converted an injury time penalty after Ighalo fell under a challenge from Manuel Pablo. The veteran right back got himself sent off in the incident after insulting the referee, and with his side in disarray, Depor manager Domingos Pacienca offered his resignation to club president Lendoiro just six weeks after he took over from José Luis Oltra. It was a second big win in a row though for the Andaulsians' new coach Lucas Alcaraz, and his side are now six points above the drop zone.
