Granada breathe easier after victory over Athletic Bilbao

Granada are breathing easier after victory over Athletic Bilbao on Tuesday night.

Granada defeated mid-table Athletic Bilbao 1-0 to move five points from the relegation zone ahead of the other mid-week games.

Álex Collado scored a 35th-minute winner for 16th-place Granada, which was coming off a 6-2 victory at 18th-place Mallorca.

Granada is unbeaten in four matches, since a 4-1 home loss to Levante in April.

Eighth-place Athletic played a man down from the 85th after Mikel Vesga was sent off with a second yellow card.
