GRANADA, Spain — Granada squandered an excellent chance to break its winless streak when it was held 0-0 by 10-man Almeria at home in the Spanish league on Monday.

Granada's scoring woes deepened against an Almeria side that couldn't muster a shot on goal and played with 10 men from the 53rd minute after midfielder Ramon Azeez earned his second booking.

Coach Joaquin Caparros quickly sent on an extra forward in Jhon Cordoba, but the hosts went no closer than his header by the post in the 62nd.

Almeria remained winless in six games, but inched out of the relegation zone to rest level on points with two teams.

Granada's winless streak reached eight games. It remained one point above Almeria and the lowest-scoring team in the league with six goals in 12 rounds.
