Sports Desk- The match between Grita Granada and Real Betis took place 2–2 on Monday in La Liga. A stoppage time strike from Roberto Soldado helped a gritty Granada hold Real Betis 2-2 at home in a thrilling La Liga encounter at the Benito Villamarin Stadium.

Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Soldado volleyed home a corner which landed kindly for him at the far post after an 85th-minute penalty from Sergio Canales and an 88th-minute effort by Cristian Tello had turned the match on its head.

Fernandez fired Granada ahead when he swept the ball home from eight metres to round off a superb fast break, with Ramon Azeez releasing Antonio Puertas who squared the ball to the striker from the left flank.

The result left Granada 8th on 42 points from 29 games while Real Betis stayed 13th on 34 points, nine clear of the relegation zone.
