Tony Adams’ Granada side relegated from La Liga after 2-1 defeat by Real Sociedad

Date Posted,April 28, 2017

Granada’s run of six consecutive seasons in La Liga ended on Saturday following a 2-1 defeat at Real Sociedad, leaving Tony Adams’ side 10 points adrift of safety with three games left.

Carlos Vela crept in at the near post to tap Real Sociedad ahead on the stroke of halftime but Granada came out fighting in the second half.

After having a goal ruled out for offside, Colombia striker Adrian Ramos headed in the first goal of Adams’ brief tenure in the 65th minute.

Ramos narrowly failed to connect with a cross a few minutes later but Real Sociedad soon made their quality shine through.

Juanmi smacked the bar from the edge of the area and Mikel Oyarzabal wasted a glorious chance before Juanmi volleyed in a clever chipped pass from Sergio Canales to inflict a fifth straight defeat on Granada.

Granada, who were promoted to La Liga in 2011 for the first time in 25 years, are 19th in the standings on 20 points, joining basement club Osasuna in the Segunda Division next season.
