A 2-1 defeat at Celta Vigo leaves Granada in relegation trouble.
A brace from Iago Aspas has helped Celta Vigo to a 2-1 win over Granada and moved them up to fifth place in La Liga.
The former Liverpool and Sevilla man completed his double in the 76th minute to dump more misery on the visitors and leave them just one point above the relegation zone.
Aspas scored his first from the penalty spot in the 16th minute after Cristiano Biraghi was punished for a foul on John Guidetti in the area.
Granada handed themselves a lifeline late on, drawing level in the 69th minute when Youssef El-Arabi drilled Fran Rico's low pass into the back of the net, but the match did not stay level for long.
Celta's winner came seven minutes later when Aspas chased down a Nolito through-pass and guided the ball beyond Andres Fernandez from close range to deal a blow to their opponents' survival hopes.
The result sees Celta leapfrog Athletic Bilbao in the league table and boost their chances of playing European football next term.
