GRANADA, Spain (AP) — Substitute Santiago Arias scored late to help Granada recover from an own goal and secure a 2-1 win at home over Alavés in the Spanish league on Friday.
Arias struck the winner with four minutes remaining, shortly after defender Luis Abram swept a cross by Alavés into his own net with a poor clearance attempt.
A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Friday:
Granada visits Athletic Bilbao needing a win to ensure it doesn’t fall into the Spanish league’s relegation zone. Granada coach Robert Moreno will miss the match serving the first of a two-game suspension after he was sent off for protesting during a loss to Real Madrid last round.
MADRID (AP) — Real Madrid kept its momentum from before the international break by winning its fourth game in a row and getting back to the top of the Spanish league.
Madrid cruised to a 4-1 win over 10-man Granada on Sunday after dominating from the start to reclaim first place.
