Granada – Real Madrid (La Liga)

Granada and Real Madrid face each other this saturday night, at Nuevo Estadio de Los Cármenes, in Granada, for the 36th round of La Liga. The hosts have lost all their last five consecutive La Liga matches, which lefts Granada with the relegation to the spanish second division eminent, playing the remaining games only because they have to. Real Madrid, on their turn, are at the other side of the table, racing side by side with Barcelona for the title and need to win all the remaining three league games, although Zinedine Zidane should rotate heavily here in order to have fresh players for the clash against Atletico Madrid, for the Champions League.

Granada are 19th placed in the La Liga table, result of 4 victories, 8 draws and 23 defeats, with 28 goals scored and 74 goals scored. This has been a season where Granada were unable to be at the same level than the rest of the teams, which resulted in their permanent staying in the relegation zone since the beginning of the season, presenting 9 defeats in their last 10 league matches, and drawing the remaining one. This awful sequence of results left Granada without any chance of survival, and they are now just playing for pride. The Nazaríes have the 2nd most beaten defensive sector of the league and the most inefficient attack of all.

In their last 5 official games, Granada lost all 5. This sequence of results started with a 1-3 home defeat against Valencia. This result was followed by a 0-3 home defeat against Celta de Vigo, 2-0 away defeat at Sevilla’s ground, 0-2 home defeat at the hands of Málaga, and in their last clash, a 2-1 away defeat at Real Sociedad’s home. Saunier, injured, and Ezequiel Ponce, suspended, are both out for this match.

Probable Lineup: Ochoa – Foulquier, Hongla, Ingason and Silva – Uche and Krhin – Cuenca, Pereira and Mallé – Ramos.

laligaReal Madrid, on their turn, are 2nd placed in the La Liga table with the same 81 points than 1st Barcelona, result of 25 victories, 6 draws and 3 defeats, with 92 goals scored and 33 goals conceded. The Madrid side arrive here extremely motivated after an expressive win over their neighbors Atlético de Madrid, for the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals, winning 3-0, having their presence almost secured in the final. After this very positive result, it is now time for them to focus on their domestic responsibilities and that means they have to win all the remaining La Liga matches, because if they don’t, they will be out of the title race, although they still have a game behind schedule.

After the Champions League confront, Zinedine Zidane will most likely rotate his team and rest most of the regular starters. Even with Asensio, Morata, Isco, Lucas Vázquez, Kovacic, among others, Real Madrid are still a huge talented team at all levels, always being a very organized team and especially lethal in counterattacks, with forwards capable of making the difference at any time through individual skill, as we could see, more recently, against Deportivo.

In their last 5 official games, Real Madrid won 4 and drew the remaining. This sequence of results started with a 4-2 home win against Bayern Munich, for the Champions League. This result was followed by a 2-3 home defeat at the hands of Barcelona, 2-6 away win over Deportivo, 2-1 home victory over Valencia, and in their last clash, a 3-0 home win against Atletico de Madrid, for the Champions League. Pepe, Bale and Carvajal are all out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Casilla – Danilo, Varane, Nacho and Marcelo – Rodríguez, Kovacic and Isco – Vázquez, Morata and Asensio.

Real Madrid has won all the their last 8 direct confronts, losing the remaining.
