DOMINIC Solanke’s second goal in Spain proved not enough as Cherries were beaten 2-1 in a pre-season friendly against Granada.

The La Liga outfit took the lead through Alberto Soro on 28 minutes before Solanke’s classy leveller restored parity before the break.

But Colombian Luis Suarez popped up with the winner for last season’s Europa League quarter-finalists, as Scott Parker’s side finished their training camp in Spain with a defeat.

Cherries made two changes from the side who overcame third tier Real Balompedica Linense in Marbella on Friday.

Adam Smith and Sam Sherring replaced Jordan Zemura and Zeno Ibsen-Rossi, to take on a Granada outfit who finished ninth in La Liga last season.

Smith featured at left-back for the Dorset club, with Lloyd Kelly keeping the captain’s armband for the second successive game.

And Cherries almost took an early lead at Federacion Malaguena de Futbol in Andalusia after just four minutes.

After seizing on a loose ball, winger Jaidon Anthony drove at the Spanish side’s defence and looked to play in frontman Solanke.

But the pass was just too heavy for the former Liverpool and Chelsea striker to gather.

Cherries looked to take the game to Granada in the opening exchanges. Wales international David Brooks saw his shot across goal whistle past the far post with Granada keeper Aaron Escandell diving to his right.

From Jack Stacey’s throw-in on the right, Philip Billing then turned away from his man and rifled an effort from 25 yards, which was blocked to safety before Brooks went close once again.

After neat hold-up play from Solanke, the Warrington-born playmaker shifted the ball onto his left foot and sent a low drive which flew narrowly wide of the target.

Smith then picked up the game’s first caution for a clumsy challenge before Brooks was involved in some pushing and shoving with defender Victor Diaz.

Cherries continued to press with intensity and it almost paid dividends with 23 minutes gone.

After a combination of Stacey and Brooks won the ball back high up the pitch, a dangerous ball into the box almost found a sliding Anthony, who just failed to make contact at the back post.

But for all their endeavour, Cherries fell behind in simplistic fashion after 28 minutes. A routine ball to the back-post allowed Soro the opportunity to head in past Mark Travers from close range.

But Granada’s lead only lasted all of four minutes, as Solanke popped up with his second goal of the trip.

He ran on to a classy threaded pass from Anthony, rounded the keeper and tucked home to make it 1-1 after 32 minutes.

Parker’s troops again were susceptible when a cross to the back post fell to Sorro once again, this time the Championship side scrambled back before the Spaniard could pull the trigger.

Cherries switched Smith with Zemura at the interval, with Granada starting the second period the brighter.

Former Barcelona youngster Monchu’s effort was charged down as the Spanish side started to see more possession.

Luis Milla then blazed over after Robert Moreno’s side had won the ball back high up the pitch.

And the pressure soon told on Cherries as Granada had their second just before the hour mark.

After Zemura was beaten by his man down the flank, a cross deflected off Stacey and allowed Colombian forward Suarez the chance to fire at goal. Travers failed to keep out his stinging effort from inside the box.

As many of 10 changes were then made by Parker for the final 22 minutes of the contest, with Sam Surridge captaining a youthful Cherries side for the latter stages.

Academy graduate Surridge almost had a leveller when he was played in by Christian Saydee but dragged his effort wide when under pressure.

Cherries host Chelsea in a pre-season friendly at Vitality Stadium on Tuesday, July 27.

The Dorset club's first competitive game comes against MK Dons in the Carabao Cup on July 31.
