MATCH REPORT | Defeat in Granada (2-0)

The team did not show its best version

Real Betis Balompié was defeated today by Granada CF. The match became difficult quite soon for the Green and Whites, as Granada scored a penalty quite early in the game. Soldado, who scored the penalty, double his tally a few minutes later to close the score.

The game started quite poorly for Betis, as the referee pointed to the spot in the 11th minute for a tackle by Rodríguez on Suárez. Soldado did not miss the shot. Just seven minutes later, Soldado scored again after a mistake by Betis' defense.

In the second half, Betis tried to attack more and control the game, but Granada defended quite solidly and barely conceded chances.
