Granada vs Barcelona Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Granada lost a key battle in the race against relegation, as they suffered a 3-1 loss against Sporting Gijon. Despite taking the lead through Sverrir Ingason’s 51st minute goal, the club were unable to claim a win. Sporting Gijon came back into the game through goals from Lacina Traore, Jean Sylvain-Babin, and Carlos Carmona. Barcelona secured a 4-2 win over Valencia to remain two points behind Real Madrid in the La Liga title race. Eliaquim Mangala and Munir were the scorers for Valencia, but Barcelona responded through a brace from Lionel Messi and goals from Luis Suarez and Andre Gomes.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Granada have conceded 44 out of the 58 goals in the away matches. At home, they have conceded only 14 goals in the 13 matches. Barcelona have scored under 2.5 goals in six out of the last nine away games in the La Liga. Even though the Catalan club are the top scorers in the division with 81 goals, they have struggled in the away matches. The absence of Lionel Messi is a major blow to Luis Enrique’s team. I would back Barcelona to score under 2.5 goals in the game, and it is available at an exceptional price. Luis Suarez has scored on his two visits to the Nuevo Los Carmenes. He has scored four goals in these two games. The Uruguayan has also been in exceptional form for Barcelona after scoring five goals in his last five games. I would back Suarez to score anytime.

Barcelona to score under 2.5 goals – 6/5

Luis Suarez to score anytime – 1/2

Granada Preview

Granada lost a huge opportunity to stay in touch with teams above the drop zone, as they lost to Sporting Gijon. This loss against one of the key relegation rivals has seen them drop seven points behind the Leganes, who occupy the 17th spot. Much of the resurgence created by Granada has been at the Nuevo Los Carmenes, where the club has managed three wins in the last five games. This run is in sharp contrast to their away form, which has been spectacularly poor. The team has lost their last eight games without exception.

Barcelona Preview

Barcelona’s win over Valencia cannot have come at a better time, as it reinstates the confidence after the 2-1 loss against Deportivo La Coruna. This victory gives confidence as Barcelona prepare to face the likes of Sevilla, Real Madrid, and Juventus across two different competitions in the month of April. The game against Valencia once again reaffirmed the club’s lack of defensive form, as they have kept just one clean sheet in the last eight games across all competitions.
