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

Villarreal have been producing fine performances in pre-season and seeing that they outplayed the likes of Augsburg, Koln, Levante and WBA, we believe that Santi Cazorla and Co. Estadio de la Ceramica will host Saturdays football match between Villarreal and Granada, the two teams who face each other in the opening match of the season. The Yellows were struggling in the 2018/2019 La Liga season, but they eventually managed to avoid the drop to the Spanish second tier. are capable of beating newcomers Granada in front of home fans.

The late game in La Liga on Saturday is an intriguing one as a Granada side that has started the season very brightly takes on Barcelona who have struggled on the road so far. Theyve already dropped points away to one of the newly promoted teams and this trip to the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes is unlikely to be any easier.

Villarreal vs Granada PREDICTION & BETTING TIPS - 17/08/2019

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.

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.

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.

Goalscorers

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.

An interesting thing is that Barcelona has won five of their last 7 road trips to newly-promoted opposition. Barcelona will have to stop Granadas newcomer Puerta, whos last four goals scored have been the final ones of their respective matches. By looking at the pure statistics, it looks like Barcelona is dominating them, but it is not like that always. With a surprise loss in the first round, Barcelona will have to win this game and catch up with other teams at the top.

Villarreal have been producing fine performances in pre-season and seeing that they outplayed the likes of Augsburg, Koln, Levante and WBA, we believe that Santi Cazorla and Co. are capable of beating newcomers Granada in front of home fans. The Yellows were struggling in the 2018/2019 La Liga season, but they eventually managed to avoid the drop to the Spanish second tier. Estadio de la Ceramica will host Saturdays football match between Villarreal and Granada, the two teams who face each other in the opening match of the season.

Granada vs Barcelona Prediction & Match Preview

The winners of this Fridays game will (briefly at least) go top of the table so theres plenty of incentive here for both Granada and Sevilla with Andalusian pride also at stake. The visitors will be the favourites but they will know they will be in for a game against a Granada side who caught the eye on the opening weekend.
