Granada is welcoming Real Madrid to Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes in round 36 in Spanish LaLiga.
Granada has been decent since the restart and they have 2 losses, 3 draws, and 3 wins in their last three games. Granada is undefeated in their last 3 games in LaLiga, alongside 7 scored goals, and 4 conceded goals. With this great run, Granada is now in 10th place with 50 points, just 3 points away from the Europa League. Offensively, Granada is doing well this season and they scored 45 goals, while their defense is far from the worst with 42 conceded goals. In their last LaLiga game against Sociedad on the road, Granada has had low 32% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, and low 57% of the correct passes. Despite being the weaker team in this match, Granada was still able to win 2-3 for another 3 precious points on the road. Fernandez is Granada’s top goalscorer with 8 goals, while Soldado, Puertas, and Machis each scored 6 goals. Diaz and Machis both added 5 assists. Martinez, Quini, Lozano, and Gonalons are all injured, while Vadillo and Vallejo are still questionable. Whether Granada ends in the Europa League or not, this was a fantastic season for them, and they are completely happy with it.
Real Madrid is on a fantastic 8-game winning streak after the restart during which they conceded only 2 goals while scoring 15 goals. Thanks to this streak, Real Madrid is now at the top of the standings with 80 points, 1 point more than Barcelona, but with a game, less, which means it could be 4 points after this game, or It could be 2 points, or it could stay exactly the same if Real Madrid loses this game. Anything but the win here would make the situation complicated for Real Madrid because they could lose the title. Real Madrid has scored solid 64 goals this season, but their defense has been absolutely fantastic with only 21 conceded goals in 35 games. Benzema has scored decent 18 goals and added 8 assists for Real Madrid, while Ramos has 10 goals. Nacho and Marcelo are both injured and will not be in the lineup for this match. In their latest LaLiga game against Alaves a few days ago, Real was the better team with 71% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, and high 91% of the correct passes. Real has scored 1 goal in each half and has won this game 2-0. Real has only one more hard game this season, which is against Villarreal, but even if they lose that one, and win the other two, Real Madrid will be the new champion of LaLiga, and I got to be honest, they deserve it because they are the best team overall, even if they got a few VAR call going their way.
Granada has beaten Real Madrid only once in the past, and that was back in 2013. Since then, Real Madrid has won 9 straight games against Granada, while Granada has scored only 2 goals against Real Madrid during this stretch. I’m hoping that Granada can get at least 1 point out of this game, but I doubt it will happen, but I think they could score at least one goal in this match.
