Granada: the ‘king of the marathon’ does not wrinkle and improves his records

Granada is the team that has accumulated the most games in Europe so far this season. Nothing less than 29. We once again emphasize this data because it multiplies in value what this team is achieving in the three competitions it disputes for the first time in its history.

As is well known, there are too many teams that were doomed to failure because they did not know how to face the requirement of making the League, Cup and continental competition compatible. The latest example is Espanyol. In addition, Granada has encountered multiple Chinese girls on its way. In addition to the tight schedule, injuries and the scourge of the coronavirus. He has never wrinkled and is confirmed as the undisputed king of the marathon. An efficient long-distance runner who maintains his rhythm without letting go of the front of the pack and doses himself waiting for his moment in the final stretch.

The data is more than interesting. With 18 league games played, the team is seventh in the standings with the same 27 points from the previous year and in a better position, last year it closed the first round in tenth place. If Granada scores in Villarreal, it will close a first round more than remarkable.

It’s always good to look back and go back to Granada’s two best seasons in the distant and heroic 70s of the last century. In the 1971-72 and 1973-74 campaignsBoth with Joseito as coach, the Los Cármenes team finished in sixth place, finishing the respective first laps in eleventh and seventh places. They were leagues with 18 teams and Granada did not qualify to play the European tournament of rigor (in this case the UEFA Cup. For all this, we must consider this season, as a whole, as the best although there is still a long way to go .

Los Cármenes is a fort

Diego Martínez’s team has turned Los Cármenes into a fortress, recovering the tradition of the previous golden age where the big teams feared this visit. In so far this domestic tournament, Granada has won six games, drawn two and lost another two. If we add the ten from the previous year to these victories, they would be 16m, only surpassed by Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atlético.

Foulquier’s improvement

On the other hand Dimitri Foulquier is better. The French full back fell from the starting lineup last Tuesday against Osasuna due to a strange allergic reaction. An anaphylactic shock that he suffered during the warm-up before the duel against the Navarrese. A full-blown scare. The team rested this Thursday and starting tomorrow will prepare with full intensity for Sunday’s Cup match against Málaga at the Rosaleda.
