GLORY: Not many newly-promoted sides find themselves among the midst of giants at the top of the table

GRANADA CF have made a great start to the new season, sitting third in La Liga, only two points off Barcelona who sit top.

The newly-promoted Andalcuian team have made an unprecedented start, winning five games, drawing and losing two. 

The side earned their fifth win last weekend, beating Osasuna 1-0 in a hard-fought game. 

And Granada have stunned champions Barcelona last month, beating the Catalans 2-0, and even in their recent defeat to Real Madrid, a 4-2 loss, Granada tried until the bitter end. 

So far they have earned 17 points, which is their best-ever start to La Liga.

Only one team was relegated after earning at least the same points from their opening nine matches in the league – local rivals Sevilla, in the 1971/1972 season.

Granada have scored five goals with headers, more than any other team in the top five European leagues.
