Granada Beaten After Request To Postpone Match Over Coronavirus Was Rejected

A Granada side featuring seven senior players lost at leaders Real Sociedad after their request to postpone Sunday’s La Liga game was rejected.

There have been 10 positive coronavirus tests at Granada and players who travelled to Cyprus for the 2-0 Europa League win over Omonia Nicosia on Thursday were not allowed to play.

Goalkeeper Angel Jimenez, 18, saved a penalty on his debut for Granada.

He was among four players to start who were not listed on the club’s website.

Granada, who said they did not have the “minimum number of first-team players”, bolstered their squad with players from their reserves and youth team and made nine changes to the side that drew 1-1 with Levante last Sunday.

Goals from former Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal and Spain winger Mikel Oyarzabal helped the hosts to a fifth consecutive win.

Darwin Machis saw a late penalty saved for the visitors after home defender Robin le Normand had been sent off.
