Valencia’s hopes of qualifying for the 2020-21 Europa League have suffered a real dent, as they were held to a 2-2 draw at Granada.
Los Che, who dismissed manager Albert Celades last week, slip down to 10th in La Liga, with four games still to go for in 2019-20.
The result at the Nuevo Estadio de Los Carmenes leaves a three point gap to 7th place Real Sociedad, with both Imanol Alguacil’s side, and rivals Athletic Bilbao, both playing a game less.
Both sides struggled to find a breakthrough inside the first half, with a four goal second half ensuring a share of the spoils with Diego Martinez’s side.
Carlos Fernandez opened the scoring for the hosts, before Valencia hit back through Manu Vallejo and Goncalo Guedes, but a late goal for Fede Vico secured a draw.
It's another absolute SCREAMER from Gonçalo Guedes for Valencia! 😱
