Granada promoted to La Liga

Granada will play in the top flight of Spanish football for the first time since 1976 after sealing promotion on away goals after a 1-1 draw in Elche.

After a goalless first leg, the Spanish second division play-off final second leg saw Nigerian striker Odion Jude Ighalo give Granada the lead after 28 minutes; the striker rounding the goalkeeper before slotting home.

Xumetra pulled a goal back with ten minutes left to set up a nervous finale, but having played in the fourth tier of Spanish football just six years ago, Granada's spirit saw them through and they join Real Betis and Rayo Vallecano in the top-flight next season.
