10-Man Granada Beats 9-Man Valencia In The Worst Referee Performance Of 2020

Ten-man Granada defeated nine-man Valencia on Wednesday in one of the most ridiculously officiated games you’ll ever see at the highest level of professional sport. Adrián Cordero Vega was the man in the middle, and his performance included a questionable decision at the monitor followed by three red cards in six minutes. 

The shit show began in the 14th minute after Kenedy clearly opened the scoring for Granada. But not so fast — during the buildup, Valencia’s Jason had taken control of Dimitri Foulquier’s arm and guided it into his own face. Maybe we can argue about this, but I hope we can agree that it’s a bad use of VAR.  

Kevin Gameiro then opened the scoring for Valencia in the 36th minute following a pinpoint cross from 2018 World Cup legend Denis Cheryshev. 

Poetic justice was served in first half stoppage time when Kenedy’s free kick took a heavy deflection to fox Rui Silva. 

To the second half we go. Buckle up.

70th minute: Jason and Domingos Duarte clash. It’s a second yellow for Jason and he’s off.  

73rd minute: Gonçalo Guedes says something to the ref and it’s a straight red. Off you go.

76th minute: Duarte makes a tactical foul and it’s a straight red. See ya. 

We’d have one final twist in the 88th minute through 38-year-old Granada striker Jorge Molina. This is old-man strength in the neck muscles. 

In total, the match featured 31 fouls, six yellow cards and the three reds. 

USMNT talent Yunus Musah played the final 14 minutes for Valencia, which is now only out of the relegation on goal difference. Granada moved up to seventh, just one point behind sixth-place Barcelona.
