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.

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.

The reigning champions are eager to climb to top position in the standings and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Andalusians on Matchday 5. Barcelona will be aiming to build on a 5-2 win over Valencia when they take on newcomers Granada on Matchday 5. Luis Suarez scored on his return from injury and, to make things even better for Barca fans, key player Leo Messi should return against Granada as well.

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.

Granada vs Barcelona Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews

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.

They won 1-4 in this fixture last season and expect something similar here. With Messi back in the fold after injury, the goals will surely follow and Ernesto Valverde's men should get back to winning ways and rack up the goals here. Barcelona were held to a rare draw in Dortmund in their midweek Champions League match but they will look to get back on track here.

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).

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.

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. are going to record their third victory of the season. The newcomers face an uphill task against Barcelona and we are positive that Leo Messi and Co.

Goalscorers

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.

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.

As of now, Cules worldwide will be curious as to how their attackers would line up. Ernesto Valverde is going through a problem of plenty at the moment. Teenage sensation Ansu Fati seemed to jump out of nowhere into one of the main players in the squad and coupled with Carles Perez, Dembele, Antoine Griezmann, Suarez and the returning Messi, itd be a wonder as to what even the front three might be.

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.

They claimed nine 1-0 victories on their way to automatic promotion from the Segunda with just 28 goals conceded across the season. Diego Martinezs side came up with a reputation for being a solid and at times pretty defensive side. Therefore it was a huge shock to see them involved in a dramatic 4-4 draw at Villarreal on the opening weekend with the new boys netting two late goals from set-pieces to salvage an excellent point.
