Gloria in Maradona's house

Granada overcame a goal from Zielinski in minute 3 and injuries to Machís, Gonalons, Neva and Germán to eliminate Napoli and achieve the historic pass to the second round of the Europa League.


The story continues. Granada will be in the round of 16 of the Europa League thanks to that unwavering faith that distinguishes it and that has it in a cloud since Diego Martínez landed in Los Cármenes two and a half seasons ago, with the team in Second. The classification forced another machado and the team achieved it. Despite the 2-0 in the first leg and Montoro's precious goal in the 25th minute, the game once again put the rojiblancos on the edge.

The battle at Diego Armando Maradona left four new victims in the Nasrid war part. Darwin Machís, one of Diego Martínez's stilettos, was injured in the warm-up. The Venezuelan was followed by Gonalons, Carlos Neva and Germán, all of them with muscle injuries. The first two fell before the break, while the captain left the pitch shortly after returning from the locker room. The Galician coach was forced to pull Víctor Díaz, Nehuén and Yangel, who left Sunday's game in Huesca with problems and came out on the pitch in the 55th minute under minimums.

If Gattuso wanted a favorable scenario for the comeback, he couldn't imagine it better. Eteki gave a ball to Bakayoko in the midfield and Zielinski put the Italians ahead before 180 seconds of play. But Granada brought out his trade and balanced the game and the scoreboard. Montoro, the rojiblanco motor, expanded his excellent repertoire with a manual header after a good cross from Foulquier. The 1-1 dampened the momentum of Napoli, who only found some encouragement in a free-kick that Insigne crashed off the crossbar after a new gift from Eteki.

The Granada emitted very solid and convincing signals, but the Nasrids do not understand conquests without epics and the injuries were dismantling Diego Martínez's plan until he had almost no room for maneuver. Fabian found the only hole left by the red-and-white rear to make it 2-1 with more than half an hour to go. Vallejo and Soldado, in worse physical condition than fair (the central trained yesterday outside the group), went rowing at 83 'to finish the feat. Napoli pressed until the end. But the Nasrid rear and Rui Silva remained insurmountable. The eighths demanded a feat and Granada, devastated by the physical problems of its players, starred in another heroic night and reached glory in the temple of Maradona.
