Granada vs Real Madrid: Predictions
Granada return to La Liga action just a matter of days after their defeat against Real Betis on Monday night. A late goal for the hosts in Seville secured all three points for Betis and saw Granada slump to 10th spot in the table with European qualification a distant memory.
Real Madrid’s title push took another blow on the weekend as Zinedine Zidane’s men were held to a draw against Sevilla. Julen Lopetegui’s Sevilla are only four points behind Madrid, however, a win for the Galacticos would have taken them level on points with their city rivals who top the league.
Just three games remain for Zidane’s side and given Atletico were able to come out of the Nou Camp with a point on the weekend you feel Los Blancos cannot afford any more slip-ups if they are to have any hope of retaining their La Liga crown.
Former Tottenham Hotspur striker, Roberto Soldado, will serve the last of his three-game ban for Granada following his sending off against Cadiz. Zidane will be hoping Eden Hazard can continue from where he left off against Sevilla as it was the Belgian who secured the point with a stoppage-time strike.
Granada vs Real Madrid: Match Stats
Granada have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last eight games and given their recent history against Los Blancos the odds will be heavily stacked against them to stop that poor defensive run. Madrid have scored 12 goals against Granada in their last four meetings and with the title to play for, we expect Zidane’s men to be up for the game on Thursday night.
Only four teams in the league have received more yellow cards than Granada and in the previous two meetings between the sides, Granada have been awarded a combined seven yellow cards. The Seville-based side’s discipline has been one of their biggest issues this season with Diego Martinez’s side receiving the most (5) straight red cards in La Liga this season.

Granada’s recent record against Zidane’s side is nothing short of miserable. The Seville-based side will have the odds stacked heavily against them and with another slip up for Madrid likely to be the end to their title push, Granada will have to play a perfect game to get anything out of Thursday’s clash.
