Granada – Barcelona Match Prediction | 22-09-2019 15:00

Granada has started this season great, with 7 points from 4 games. They continued their great form from the preseason, where they casually won against the likes of Sevilla, Las Palmas, Almeria, etc They will try to make a statement in this match, as they can be a tough team with a high potential for surprises. They have proved that in the first round like it was already said. Their best acquisition this summer was the famous Spaniard Roberto Soldado who will bring his experience in what it looks like a battle for the middle of the table and La Liga next year, too.

Villarreal have been producing fine performances in pre-season and seeing that they outplayed the likes of Augsburg, Koln, Levante and WBA, we believe that Santi Cazorla and Co. are capable of beating newcomers Granada in front of home fans. The Yellows were struggling in the 2018/2019 La Liga season, but they eventually managed to avoid the drop to the Spanish second tier. Estadio de la Ceramica will host Saturdays football match between Villarreal and Granada, the two teams who face each other in the opening match of the season.

How we calculate our stats

They claimed nine 1-0 victories on their way to automatic promotion from the Segunda with just 28 goals conceded across the season. Diego Martinezs side came up with a reputation for being a solid and at times pretty defensive side. Therefore it was a huge shock to see them involved in a dramatic 4-4 draw at Villarreal on the opening weekend with the new boys netting two late goals from set-pieces to salvage an excellent point.

The reigning champions are eager to climb to top position in the standings and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Andalusians on Matchday 5. Barcelona will be aiming to build on a 5-2 win over Valencia when they take on newcomers Granada on Matchday 5. Luis Suarez scored on his return from injury and, to make things even better for Barca fans, key player Leo Messi should return against Granada as well.

As of now, Cules worldwide will be curious as to how their attackers would line up. Ernesto Valverde is going through a problem of plenty at the moment. Teenage sensation Ansu Fati seemed to jump out of nowhere into one of the main players in the squad and coupled with Carles Perez, Dembele, Antoine Griezmann, Suarez and the returning Messi, itd be a wonder as to what even the front three might be.

Highlighted Team (Granada):

Their opponents were reduced to 9 men early in that game so ultimately it was a match they would have expected to win. Granada meanwhile have been flying.
