‘Granada can compete’

Lucas Alcaraz insists his Granada team can compete to stay in the Primera Liga but admits they must start winning more points away from home.

The Andalusian club go into today's meeting with Espanyol second from bottom of the table, having picked up just one League win all season.

"If we want to and we're convinced enough that we can achieve our aim, we also need to secure points away from home," Alcaraz told media ahead of the trip to Catalonia.

"We mustn't just think the team can win away from home, we also have to do it.

"If anyone watches our team, they will see we have a team that can compete.

"There's a distance in points [to safety] that we need to reduce as quickly as possible."
