Granada and Mallorca play remaining 30 minutes of BBVA league game

MADRID, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- Granada and Mallorca this Wednesday played the remaining 30 minutes of their BBVA Primera Liga match from November 20th.

The game was suspended with Granada winning 2-1 with goals from Siqueria and Carlos Martins having put the home side ahead, after a linesman was hit by an umbrella thrown from the stands as Granada prepared to take a corner kick.

The incident cost Granada a 6,000 euros fine and caused the remainder of this encounter to be played behind closed doors.

The game restarted with Granada taking the corner, but the home side were unable to make anything of it.

Mallorca drew level after five minutes of the restart, or the 65th minute of the game when Ismael Lopez brought down Tomad Hemed in the Granada penalty area. Hemed duly fired home from the penalty spot to make it 2-2.

The fact that the two sides only had to play half an hour made it a high-octane affair, but the lack of noise from the stands gave the game a strange atmosphere and despite both sides looking for the win, there were no further goals.

The result leaves Granada 12th in the table with 16 points, while Mallorca are two places below them with 15.
