Our Prediction:

Barcelona will win

Granada – Barcelona Match Prediction | 22-09-2019 15:00

I looked at their recent performances and their styles of play, as well as other factors like tradition while I was crafting my selection. Both of these teams started this season similarly, but there is a big difference in quality. If we take everything I said, it points to the away win with over 3.5 goals scored. Barcelona looks too strong for Granada as of now.

Diego Martinez charges face a huge test as they take on the champions at Los Carmenes this Saturday evening, in a game that should produce plenty goals based on the current form of both sides and past meetings between the pair. Granada took full advantage of two early red cards for Celta Vigo last week to post a 0-2 success at Balaidos, the win taking Nazaries up to 6th in the early La Liga standings and level on points with Barcelona.

Its not just in Europe where they struggle away from home either. They head into this game having failed to win any of their last 6 away matches in all competitions. That includes trips to Osasuna and Athletic Club in La Liga this season. Barcelona were again unconvincing away in the Champions League and were somewhat fortunate to leave with a point with Marc-Andre ter Stegen largely to thank for that.

The Andalusians are determined to impress on their return to the Spanish top flight, but seeing that Villarreal are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. In their last meeting at Estadio de la Ceramica Villarreal recorded a 2-0 win over Granada, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.

Barca were founded in 1899 and they are regarded as one of the greatest clubs in world football. Barcelona have won five European Cup trophies and a number of top-class players were part of the team in the past. Barcelona is a Spanish football club based in Barcelona, Catalonia. The Catalan giants won their 24th La Liga title in 2016, with Luis Suarez winning El Pichichi award.

Their striker Luis Suarez scored two. They have to win this game to continue their run and catch Sevilla and Atl Madrid at the top. In the last round, they played without Dembele and Messi and still demolished Valencia 5:2, with many chances created as they usually do. Barcelona was stunned in the first round with an 89th-minute stunner by Aritz Aduriz in Bilbao, which claimed them 3 points and left Barcelona pointless. It is still unknown, whether Messi will play or not, but it all indicates that he could be sidelined again.

Both sides have been involved in some high scoring contests already this season and we should see a few goals in this one. Barca have also really struggled to control games in midfield, certainly on the road, so this could be a lot more even than the most recent clashes between these sides and the hosts could well get a result. Jordi Alba is out for Barcelona and Granada may feel as though they can exploit that possible weakness with Junior Firpo set to come in.

are going to record their third victory of the season. Granada did defeat Celta Vigo 2-0 on the road at the weekend, but you should bear in mind that both Jorge Saenz and Fran Beltran were sent off in Sundays football match. In their last meeting at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes Barcelona recorded a 4-1 win over Granada. The newcomers face an uphill task against Barcelona and we are positive that Leo Messi and Co.

Ernesto Valverde must decide whether to start with Messi or keep faith with 16 year old sensation Ansu Fati from the off in Granada. He came off the bench in Dortmund but is clearly going to be a bit short on match sharpness and is unlikely to get through 90 minutes here. The Catalans could at least name Leo Messi in their starting lineup for the first time this season.

Our prediction for this Primera Division match:

Granadas goal scoring prowess can see them hitting the net against a Barca defence that have conceded seven goals in their first four La Liga outings, but it may be a consolation only with a 1-4 correct score forecasted in favour of Ernesto Valverdes side (Barcelona have hit three or four goals past Granada in four of the last five meetings).

This game will be played on September 21st, at the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes in Granada, Spain. An interesting game is upon us, in which Barcelona is being listed as a strong favorite. Granada vs Barcelona prediction comes ahead of the Spanish La Liga fifth-round duel between these two. In this match preview, I will try to provide the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on my analysis of these two teams. The referee will be J.Munuera from Spain.

Granada has started this season great, with 7 points from 4 games. They continued their great form from the preseason, where they casually won against the likes of Sevilla, Las Palmas, Almeria, etc They will try to make a statement in this match, as they can be a tough team with a high potential for surprises. They have proved that in the first round like it was already said. Their best acquisition this summer was the famous Spaniard Roberto Soldado who will bring his experience in what it looks like a battle for the middle of the table and La Liga next year, too.

That is the style, that Barcelona is known for. In the last 10 matches between them, only once was scored under 2.5 goals. A demolishing victory is something we see quite a lot on their games, even though they have taken just one away point from the last 9 available in La Liga. On the other side, Granada has never trailed by over 1.5 goals at halftime in La Liga Head-to-Head matches at home this century. Barcelona is dominating their Head-to-Head matches with only 2 defeats from 20 games in recent history.
