Nobody expected Granada to be high up on the Spanish La Liga table. As soon as they earned promotion from the Segunda Division last season after finishing as runners-up, no one in Spain’s top flight ever thought they will be high flying at this time of the season. This was not the first time Granada would be in the La Liga and considering the last time the Nazaríes finished inside the top flights top ten was in 1974. It seems manager Diego Martínez has been able to find the perfect formula for his unfancied team. They find selves tucked nicely behind Real Madrid in second in Spain’s top flight after seven games. Victories over Espanyol, Celta Vigo, Leganes and of course that stunning win over Barcelona (yes, Barcelona). High profile draws against Villarreal and Real Valladolid have topped up the points tally with just one defeat to Sevilla the only blemish on a remarkable record in their opening seven games. Can they keep going on?. Well, I hope they can.
