Down but not out, Granada were given a lifeline from 12 yards when Adrian Ramos stepped up to convert for 2-1 on 52 minutes before Roberto Soldado forced the game into extra tine as he leveled matters in the 79th minute for 2-2. 

The visitors then completed the comeback 6 minutes into extra time when the impressive Azeez set up Colombian forward Adrian Ramos with the striker making no mistake to put Granda 3-2 up a lead they held till full time. 

Azeez, who was on for the entire match duration, had a game rating of 7.3, made 111 touches, completed 86% of his passes and also completed all 100% of his dribbles.
