Francisco optimistic about survival

Almeria boss Francisco admitted that his side are ‘used to playing finals’ after overcoming Granada.

Two penalties ensured that the visiting side came away with a 2-0 to ease their relegation fears with one match to go.

“We have played a lot of finals in recent months,” he told a Press conference. “So we are used to playing these types of games with so much riding on them.

“We knew that Granada would come at us because they are so good in attack, but we defended very well.

“I am very happy and proud – the win leaves us on the verge of salvation. We have to be optimistic.”
