Alexander Szymanowski's late goal was enough to earn Leganes a 1-0 win over managerless Granada at Los Carmenes.

The wait for a goal, however, ended after 52 minutes as Edgar Mendez burst on to Victor Camarasa's pass and he punished his former club with a composed sidefoot...

For a local-flavoured chill out cafe, try Tete-tienda Karma on Plaza de los Lobos, just off Gran Via in the centre. Relax with a sofa and free wifi; the Fruits of the Forest milkshake comes highly recommended. Very quiet with a wonderfully friendly owner.

In the 1970s, the club changed the vertical stripes to horizontal. Since then, several changes (between horizontal and vertical) took place until 2004–05, when in a member assembly it was decided to use horizontal stripes definitively.

Bear in mind that queues at the ticket office can be sizeable even if you are only collecting pre-bought passes.

The office is open 8am-7pm during the summer season (March 15-October 14) and 8am-5pm in the winter period (October 15-March 14).

If you want to try a local wine ask for "un costa" – the quality is extremely variable and it is more like sherry (but not fortified) than a table wine.

Garcia's ability to score special goals had been demonstrated with a stunning winner at Deportivo La Coruna on September 11 and he was at it again at Los Carmenes, but Granada went in level at the break with a goal just before the interval from Mehdi Carcela.

Lucas Alcaraz is returning to Granada to embark on a third stint as coach, the La Liga club have announced.

Skirmishes continued between the Emirate of Granada and the Crown of Castile, and in the late 15th century the Christian Reconquista set its sights on Granada. Following a military campaign led by King Ferdinand II of Aragon and Queen Isabella I of Castile, which included a siege of the walled town, King Boabdil of Granada was ultimately forced to surrender the town in 1492, bringing an end to Moorish rule in the Iberian peninsula and marking the end of the Reconquista.

Granada parted company with Paco Jemez last week after a poor start to the campaign saw them collect only two points from their opening six games to sit 20th in the table.

Adelaide United have secured fringe Socceroo midfielder James Holland for the upcoming A-League season.

The visitors, who are playing in LaLiga for the first time in their history this season, should have gone in front after five minutes but Gabriel headed wide of the goal from six yards out.

Granada Club de Fútbol (Spanish pronunciation: [gɾaˈnaða ˈkluβ ðe ˈfuðβol], or simply Granada CF, is a Spanish football club based in Granada, in the autonomous community of Andalusia. Founded on 14 April 1931, it currently plays in La Liga, holding home matches at Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes.

The first football match was played against Deportivo Jaén, which resulted in a 2–1 victory. The first goal in the match, and in the club's history, was scored by Antonio Bombillar. In the 1931–32 season, the club won the Tercera Regional – Región Sur championship.

After several promotions, in 1941–42 the club made its La Liga debut. From here until the '80s, it alternated between that category and Segunda División, with its golden age coming during the '70s, with eight top flight seasons, which included a career-best two sixth league places (1971–72, 1973–74).

Upon its foundation, the club's kits were a shirt with blue and white vertical stripes and white shorts. After the Spanish Civil War the club owners went to Madrid to buy new ones, but they couldn't find other than red and white striped shirts. That became the official colour scheme from then on.

In the 1980s, Granada had some brief appearances in the second division, but it spent most seasons in Segunda División B, dropping another level in 2002–03, due to non-payment to its players.[4] After four seasons in the fourth division, former Real Madrid president Lorenzo Sanz, along with his son Paco, arrived at the club. With their help, the Andalusian side was again promoted to the third category but got itself into serious financial trouble.

The Charterhouse of Granada is a monastery of cloistered monks, located in what was a farm or Muslim almunia called Aynadamar ('Fountain of the Tears') that had an abundance of water and fruit trees. The initiative to build the monastery in that place was begun by Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba, known as El Gran Capitán. The charterhouse was founded in 1506; construction started ten years later, and continued for the following 300 years.

In 2010–11, Granada finished in fifth position, with most of the players loaned by Udinese still on board.[5] On 18 June 2011, the club became the first winner of the promotion play-offs – a different system was used from 1985 to 1999 – after successively defeating Celta de Vigo (1–1, penalty shootout) and Elche (1–1 on aggregate, away goals rule), thus returning to the top division after a 35-year absence.[6][7]

After its foundation, the team played its home matches at Campo de Las Tablas, inaugurated on 20 December 1931. Granada's stay at this ground was a short one; on 23 December 1934, a new stadium, Estadio Los Cármenes, was opened

Back in the top-flight after such a long absence, it was always going to be difficult. By the end of the 2011–12 season, Granada managed to survive though, finishing in 17th position.
