‘Hat-trick makes up for Madrid miss’

Valencia’s Alvaro Negredo felt happy again after scoring a hat-trick against Granada in the Copa del Rey days after a Real Madrid miss.

Negredo had a golden opportunity to put Los Che ahead late on against Los Blancos on Sunday but couldn’t take it, and admitted to being down about the mistake until scoring three on Wednesday.

“I was very down the other day after Madrid but three goals make me very happy,” the striker said, Marca reports.

“More than this win we have to find a consistent line and to always compete with intensity.”
