Real Madrid vs Granada build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Real have struck a purple patch at a perfect time, qualifying for the last-16 of the Champions League with a 2-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach and moving near the summit of La Liga with a succession of wins.
Zidane’s men have picked up vital victories over Sevilla, Atletico Madrid, Athletic Club and Eibar in December to draw level on points with rivals Atletico, who do however have two games in hand.
They will face a tough opponent on Wednesday though. Granada were promoted to La Liga in 2019 and immediately made an impression, finishing seventh and reaching the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey last season.
Diego Martinez’s side have picked up where they left off this campaign, picking up six wins and three draws from their opening 13 games to sit level on points with giants Barcelona.
- Real Madrid (vs Eibar): Courtois; Carvalhal, Varane, Ramos, Mendy; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Vasquez, Benzema, Rodrygo.
- Granada (vs Real Betis): Silva; Foulquier, Duarte, Sanchez, Neva; Herrera, Gonalons, Milla; Machis, Soldado, Suarez.
Mariano Diaz, Luka Jovic and Martin Odegaard all returned to the bench for Real’s 3-1 win over Eibar following injuries. However, Eden Hazard and Vinicius Junior both missed the trip through injuries, while Isco picked up an ankle injury in training.
Jesus Vallejo returned to Granada’s bench for the 2-0 win over Real Betis on the weekend, but Neyder Lozano, Angel Montoro and Victor Diaz are all out injured.
Players to watch:
- Real Madrid: Karim Benzema is on fire at the moment. The French striker has seven goals and five assists in La Liga this season from 12 games played and has been man of the match in Real’s last two matches. Benzema scored twice in the 3-1 win over Athletic Club and got a goal and two assists in the 3-1 victory against Eibar on the weekend. The 33-year-old, who has been at the club since 2009, is as reliable a goalscorer as you are likely to find in world football and is enjoying a real hot streak currently.
- Granada: Spurs fans didn’t see the best of him, but Roberto Soldado is back amongst the goals, aged 35. The veteran striker netted both of Granada’s goals against Betis last time out, and while he is unlikely to play the full 90 minutes any time soon, he still knows where the goal is. Five of Granada’s six La Liga wins this season have been built on the back of clean sheets, so the away side only need the odd goal to record results. Soldado may be the man to provide it.
