MADRID - Granada moved eight points clear of the relegation zone following a 1-0 victory against 10-man Elche on Saturday.

Yache Brahimi scored in the 63rd-minute at the Carmenes Stadium, taking advantage of a stumble by Damian Suarez to set off and cap a break well-taken left-footed shot.

Ionut Sapunaru took Youssef El-Arabi down inside the area with 20 minutes to play to leave the visitors with 10 men, but Fran Rico was rattled by goalkeeper Manu Herrera's movement and fired his spot kick off the right post.

The win moves Granada onto 34 points, four more than Elche, with the latter just four points clear of 18th-placed Real Valladolid.

Spanish leader Real Madrid hosts Barcelona in a "clasico" with title implications as Madrid holds a four point lead over its rival.
