Preview

Granada and Barcelona face off at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes on this match of the 25th round of La Liga.

Granada has been able to get some very interesting results at home, with 6 consecutive games without losses. They are now the 19th placed team with 19 points, coming from 3 wins, 10 draws and 11 losses.

On the other side. Luis Henrique’s team is still at the second place of the league with 56 points, 4 behind the leader Real Madrid having won 18 games, with 2 draws and 4 losses. After a moralizing win against Man. City for the Champions League Barcelona is surely looking to get back to winning on the league.

The short head-to-head history between the squads favours Barcelona with 6 wins in 7 games.

Analysis of Granada

On the home’s team side the most dangerous man is Córdoba. With the absence of their top scorer El-Arabi, Cordoba is key to the team’s style of play with his great ability to control long passes.

The star of the team is Fran Rico. The midfielder is an expert ball handler, being the centre piece of the team’s attacking transitions.

The weak spot of the team is their defence, this sector of the squad usually commits several bad mistakes mostly due to the lack of technical ability of their components.

Coach Abel Resino should use his habitual 4-3-3 formation privileging the defensive side of their game even if they are playing at home. This way they avoid getting caught with the fast transitions.

Probable Starters: Oier; Nyon, Babin, Mainz, Foukquier; Iturra, Rico, Pérez; Candeias, Lass, Córdoba.
Coach: Abel Resino


Confirmed Lineup: Oier , J. Babin, A. Nyom, Juan Cala, D. Foulquier, Fran Rico, Robert Ibáñez, M. Iturra, Javi Márquez, J. Córdoba, A. Bangoura.
Coach: José Ramón Sandoval.

Analysis of Barcelona

It is highly likely that coach Luis Henrique will rest some of his key players for this match, especially the midfielders Iniesta, Rakitic and Mascherano. The Spaniard Pique will also be out due to suspension.

We can expect another offensive show from one of the most feared front lines in the world: Neymar, Messi and Suarez. The Argentinean star is especially dangerous with is stellar technical skills coupled with an amazing finishing touch.

Barcelona will surely utilize their usual 4-3-3 privileging ball possession and organized attacking.

Probable Starters: Bravo; Dani Alves, Bartra, Mathieu, Alba; Busquets, Xavi, Rafinha; Messi, Suárez, Neymar.
Coach: Luís Henrique.


Confirmed Lineup: C. Bravo, Bartra, Dani Alves, J. Mathieu, Jordi Alba, J. Mascherano, I. Rakitić, L. Suárez, L. Messi, Neymar.
Coach: Xavi, Luis Enrique.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for his match is the appearance of goals. We believe that this will be a match full of goal scoring opportunities with the natural supremacy of Barcelona probably granting them the win with Granada trying to take advantage of any mistake by the visiting team to score as well.
