Granada has starred in an express resurrection in four days. From the hand of Aitor Karanka, the desperate bet of the Nasrid club to get out of the well, the rojiblancos have reacted in a big way and have added 8 points from the last 12six of them in a row against Mallorca (2-6) and Athletic (1-0).
The arrival of Karanka, in addition to revitalizing a team that seemed doomed to fall to the Second Division, has rekindled the connection with the stands. It had been many months since Los Cármenes had lived in an atmosphere of unity like the one that was breathed this Tuesday. The rojiblanca fans have become hooked on their team and today nobody in the team’s environment doubts that Granada will continue in the highest category of Spanish football.
In fact, The Nasrid followers have devastated this Wednesday the 575 tickets that Betis made available to Granada for Sunday’s game at the Benito Villamarín (6:30 p.m.). The club will charter buses so that his followers are together with his players in the verdiblanco stadium. The permanence could be mathematical in Seville and those of Karanka will be protected in Seville.
Granada improves in all sections
Karanka’s numbers at the head of the rojiblanco bench are unquestionable. Granada has improved all the statistical sections after the arrival of the Basque. According to data collected by sofascorethe grenade He has doubled his effectiveness in front of goal (from 30% to 67%) and his goalscoring average (from 1.13 to 2.0 goals per game). In addition, he has greatly reduced the number of goals conceded (from 1.75 to 0.75).
The victory against Athletic Bilbao is the first that the team has achieved at home so far in 2022. And it is that Granada had not added the three points in Los Cármenes since December 22, when they beat Atlético de Madrid 2-1.
