MADRID (AP) - A late defensive blunder saw 10-man Granada gift Espanyol a 1-1 draw in the Spanish league on Monday.

Granada was reduced to 10 men after 28 minutes when David Barral was sent off for a second yellow card when he raised his hand to Espanyol striker Gerard Moreno’s face.

Granada went ahead in the 40th minute when Ruben Rochina pounced on a cross by Isaac Success that came back off a defender.

Granada hung on until the 82nd when defender Miguel Lopes put the ball past his own goalkeeper Andres Fernandez who was caught out of position.

The point moved Granada to 17th, one above Getafe in the first relegation place on goal difference, with Espanyol in 14th.
