Granada vs Real Madrid

, KO: 17:30 May 11, 2024, Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes
Real Madrid

Troubled Granada are still chasing a miraculous escape as they host Real Madrid in a La Liga fixture on Sunday. They have shown some good form at home lately but should still find things difficult against the newly crowned champions.

Sitting deep in relegation trouble, six points from safety, the task for Granada in the final weeks of the season will be to mastermind a miraculous escape. However, their recent form has not been convincing, with just two wins from their last five matches while suffering a 3-0 defeat at Sevilla last time out.

The good news for Granada ahead of Saturday’s clash is that they have done some good work at home lately winning their last two matches. However, prior to that run, Jose Ramon Sandoval’s men had gone five straight matches without a win.

It is shaping up to be a superb campaign for Real Madrid, who are well on course to adding the Champions League title to their La Liga win. Carlo Ancelotti’s men reached the final of Europe’s premier competition after claiming a 2-1 victory over Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

Domestically, Real Madrid are on a seven match winning run in La Liga, keeping five clean sheets in that run. They have also won their last three La Liga away matches keeping clean sheets in the last two fixtures in that run.

How the bookies view it: Los Blancos too strong for struggling hosts

Real Madrid have been installed as overwhelming favourites and are priced at 1/2 by bet365 to claim the win. A victory for Granada is valued at 5/1 while a draw is being offered at odds of 7/2.

Head to head: One-way traffic in favour of Madrid

Madrid have only lost once to Granada in 19 previous matches, winning the other 18 meetings. They claimed a 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in December.

Players to watch: Rudiger and Militao to shine in defence

Real Madrid have been solid at the back lately, keeping clean sheets in their last two away fixtures. Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao are likely to partner in central defence and can lead Los Blancos to a clean sheet at 11/8 with bet365.

At the other end of the pitch, Jude Bellingham, Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo have carried the attacking threat, although Joselu could be worth keeping an eye on. Bet365 is offering odds of 6/4 each on Bellingham and Vinicius to score anytime while Joselu is priced at 13/8 in the same market after coming off the bench to grab a brace against Bayern Munich.

Probable Line-ups

Joselu could be given a start for Real Madrid after coming off the bench to good effect on Wednesday, while Luka Modric and Eder Militao are also in line to feature.

Jose Callejon was an unused substitute for Granada at Sevilla and could be given a start against his former club.

Real Madrid: Lunin, Carvajal, Rudiger, Militao, Mendy, Tchouameni, Modric, Diaz, Bellingham, Vinicius Jr, Joselu
Granada: Batalla, Mendez, Rubio, Miquel, Carlos Neva, Pellistri, Ruiz, Gumbau, Jozwiak, Callejon, Boye

Anything else catch the eye? Champions to cement their dominance

Real Madrid won to nil in the last two meetings with Granada and a repeat is priced at 13/8 by bet365. Given their attacking quality, the newly crowned champions could also be backed in the -2 handicap market at 11/8 with bet365.

Los Blancos’ attacking quality also means they could be backed to score in both halves at 5/4 with bet365.
