Granada vs Barcelona: Predictions
Barcelona advanced to the quarter-final following a 2-1 victory over Rayo Vallecano last week with goals from Lionel Messi and Frenkie de Jong proving enough to beat the second division side. However, Barça face stiffer competition against Granada who currently sit eighth in the La Liga table.
The two sides met in the league earlier in the year and it was Barça who ran out as emphatic winners in a 4-0 victory away from home with a brace from Antione Greizmann and Lionel Messi. However, in the league, Barcelona lie 10 points behind league leaders Atletico Madrid as they aim to take back their crown from Real Madrid.
Despite the previous meeting between these two sides earlier in the year, Granada could prove tough opposition for Barça. Diego Martinez’s side progressed with PSV from their Europa League after finishing second in Group E which will see them face up against Napoli in the Round of 32.
Although Messi sits second in the La Liga top scorers table the Argentian has failed to hit the high standards he has set himself in previous years. Currently on 12 league goals, Messi is second only to his former teammate Luis Suarez who left for Madrid during the Summer Transfer Window.
