Carlos Fernández and Roberto Soldado were the protagonists of Granada's victory against Alavés. The two Nasrid nines saw the door after a long drought so that Diego Martínez's team can be reunited for victory five days later. “We are happy, it was an important day for us. To meet again with the victory, at home and in front of our fans, ”said Carlos after the duel.
"We came from not so good momentum dynamics but from effort and work because the team always gives everything," said the Sevilla striker.. It is the third goal of the player since he arrived in Granada, the first in Los Cármenes, after scoring against Espanyol and Valladolid, both at home. For Carlos, the key was in the areas: "In a big second half, we were effective in both areas, which in football is what sets the direction for you."
Another that ended his drought was Roberto Soldado, who scored his second goal at rojiblanco after scoring on the first day against Villarreal: “An attacker always wants to help his team with goals. If you can't, you need to contribute as much as you can. A long sequence is cut without marking and I hope it is now positive. It must be provoked by working hard. “We needed this victory. We came from five games without success. We had good feelings in the meetings, but it was not enough. We knew from the difficulty that the rival would complicate things. We needed this triumph, ”explained the Valencian after the duel and sentenced: “In racing we are very good, we show it. We faced an opponent who came from a good race. " In addition, he emphasized the importance of continuing the same philosophy: “We have to look at next week, Saturday, again at our stadium, with our people. Continue to feed this illusion that Grenada remains in the First Division. I hope we can do it again next week. Grenade recovers the striking scent of its two nines when the team needs it most.
First goals at home
For the first time this year, Carlos and Soldier managed to score in Los Cármenes after reaching three home goals between them. In addition, it is the first time the two attackers have scored in the same match.
