Ramon Azeez was left on the bench in Granada’s 2-0 defeat to Athletic Bilbao on Sunday in La Liga, missing only the third game this season.
Granada were seeking their first league win at the San Mames since 2014.
It was a very feisty game and referee Adrian Cordero Vega was busy for the most part and dug into his pocket nine times – issuing yellow cards.
Raul Garcia converted a 41st minute penalty to put the home side in front and with few minutes left in the game Yuri Berchiche made it 2-0 to send the 37,974 spectators into rapture.
The defeat leaves Granada in 10th position after 15 games, but they have been winless in their last five La Liga outing.
