Granada Preview – Europa League football not out of the question?

The club will inherit a legion of new supporters ahead of welcoming the league leaders to Andalusia. That is because those of a Catalan persuasion hold a vested interest in the outcome of Monday night’s clash with Real Madrid, with Lionel Messi and the rest of his Barcelona team-mates desperate for a big performance out of Diego Martinez’s Granada (9th – W14 D8 L13) charges in the hope of reigniting this season’s title race.

Granada have more pressing concerns of their own, however, as they continue their outside pursuit of a top-six finish that would see them compete in the Europa League in 2020-21. Thursday’s eye-catching 3-2 win away to Real Sociedad has kept that particular dream alive, as goals from Antonio Puertas, Roberto Soldado and an 89th minute winner from Domingos Duerte saw them climb to within three points of Getafe in sixth.

For a club promoted as runners-up in the second tier last season, this has been an exceptional campaign regardless of how the remaining games unfold. Yet a win here, or even a point, would keep them in the hunt for Europe. They’ve beaten Barcelona at home this season, losing only five of seventeen league outings at Nuevo Los Carmenes (W9 D3 L5) – though they would win just one of the last five (W1 D2 L2) staged there.


Sergio Ramos Anytime Scorer



Real Madrid Preview – Will pressure mount as title draws nearer?

Another comfortable evening’s work at the Alfredo di Stefano has brought Real Madrid (1st – W24 D8 L3) closer to league title number 34, securing an eighth straight La Liga victory with a 2-0 scoreline against Deportivo Alaves on Friday night. This is now the club’s longest winning sequence in almost four years, having not relinquished a single point since the restart, while we are fast approaching eight hours since a goal was conceded.

Imperious stuff, it truly is. Barcelona’s victory at the weekend does, however, prolong the formalities, with victory in Granada not enough to officially seal the title. But it does now seem only a matter of time before Los Blancos – whose remaining fixtures see them entertain Villarreal in Madrid before a trip to relegation-threatened Leganes on the final matchday – are crowned the best team in the country once more.

The latest success was achieved without their captain, as Sergio Ramos served a one-match suspension. The central defender had been in a rich vein of scoring form beforehand, scoring five in his last eight appearances, and would have had the chance to net again when Real were handed a penalty on Friday. Instead Karim Benzema assumed responsibility, coolly slotting home his 18th of the season in La Liga.

Eight straight wins since the restart, the last five of which achieved without so much as conceding a single goal. So that is what Granada are up against, though the Andalusians are in decent form themselves, currently three games unbeaten (W2 D1).

Granada have also scored in all but three home outings. So, at the very least, the hosts can become the first side to score past Thibaut Courtois in more than seven hours of football.
