MADRID - Granada won promotion
to La Liga on the away goals rule after drawing 1-1 in
Elche in the Spanish second division play-off final, second-leg
Nigerian striker Odion Jude Ighalo put the visitors in front
after 28 minutes after dribbling round the goalkeeper and
keeping his composure to beat another defender before scoring.
Elche pulled a goal back through Xumetra ten minutes from
time to set up a nerve-wracking finale but Granada held firm and
join second division champions Real Betis and Rayo Vallecano in
the top-flight next season.
Granada, who have never won a major honour, last graced the
Primera division in the 1975/76 season and were playing in the
fourth tier of Spanish football just six years ago.
