Recio scored two goals to help lift Granada to an easy 4-0 Spanish league win over Valladolid on Friday in Granada, Spain.

Recio, whose full name is Jose Luis Garcia, followed up Jeison Murillo's acrobatic 11th-minute opener by scoring from a corner in the 23rd for the hosts to seize control of the game at Los Carmenes Stadium.

Recio took advantage of a defensive mishap in the 54th to make it 3-0 before Youssef El Arabi finished off Granada's victory with the final goal in the 77th.

Granada improved to ninth at the halfway point of the season, while Valladolid remained in the relegation zone.

The 19th round of games continues on Saturday when co-leaders Atletico Madrid and Barcelona meet. Real Madrid is at Espanyol on Sunday.
