Aguirre: The difference? They scored

Javier Aguirre has claimed that 'the only difference was the goal' as his Espanyol side lost 1-0 to Granada.

The Periquitos' faint European dreams took a dent on Sunday as Nolito scored the only goal of the game to take El Grana out of the relegation places.

And the Mexican Coach has insisted that his team failed to take their chances.

The fans are going home disappointed,” he told a Press conference. “The day was not a good one.

“We failed to open them up defensively. Initially we looked comfortable on the ball, but over time we started to use the long ball more.

“We had a few chances, but the difference is they scored.

We have to continue though. We have five more games.”
