Granada v Real Madrid Preview & Team News
Granada is about to finish a terrible season, and set for relegation to the Secunda Division. Recently the club sacked coach Lucas Alcaraz and replaced him with Tony Adams. Adams, apart from being famous as an ex-alcoholic, is a former Arsenal legend. The former central defender hasn’t got any note worthy record as a coach. It remains to be seen if Adams is the solution to Granada’s problems. Hilarious footage of Adams during one his first training sessions were leaked, obviously not helping his credibility.
The first match between the two teams earlier this season at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu in Madrid went with 5-0 to Los Blancos. The only thing Granada can do this week, is pray three times a day. Pray for a fully rotated Real Madrid side, that doesn’t have the ambition to make it a goal fest. Keep in mind this match is a couple of days before their return match in the Champions League against Atlético.
Granada coach Tony Adams can’t make use of the injured F. Tabanou, M. Saunier, A. Kravets and E. Ponce.
Normally one would say: in between European matches teams tend to lose points, and normally I agree. But this is an in form Real Madrid side playing versus one of the worst teams in LaLiga. Even if Real will put up their under 17 side, Granada will be pushed around. Needless to say the focus with Los Blancos is on the return match in the Champions League in which they defend a 3-0 lead. Keeping his key players fit for these last weeks of the season in which all prizes are being won, is priority.
Real Madrid have it all in their own hands in LaLiga. Four more victories, and Los Blancos can lift another title. Any loss of points of rivals Barcelona will also be welcomed with cheering in Madrid. And this might as well happen this weekend as Barcelona faces in form Villarreal.
Zinedine Zidane will use as many bench players as possible for this match, and team news has be followed to know exactly what the French coach has in mind. He will certainly be without the injured Pepe and Gareth Bale. We will try to keep you updated on all the latest team news and line up predictions.

Granada v Real Madrid Betting Prediction
Granada is so god damn poor, and I can’t imagine anything other than that all their players long for the end of this horrible season. Go on holiday, forget all about what just happened the season before and hope for a fresh start, preferably with a new club. Scoring just 4 goals in their lat 10 matches, and only collecting 1 point in the process, are not really hopeful stats with the league leaders visiting.
Real Madrid is a bit torn between the title race in LaLiga and their obligations in the Champions League. For the match versus Granada there certainly will be a lot of changes compared to their last match versus Atlético. This might go at the expense of the scoring, but I don’t think this will affect Real’s defensive superiority against such a lousy Granada strike force.
My best betting tip or prediction for Granada v Real Madrid is a Real Madrid victory with a clean sheet.
