It is not surprising that Real occupies the first place but it is that new member of the Primera Division Granada occupies the second. Real has one point more and is still undefeated, while Granada lost once and won four times. The two teams met the last time in Madrid in 2017 and then Real won by 5-0.
Game Real Madrid vs FC Granada begins 05.10.2019 at 16:00 CET
Real is undefeated in first seven rounds and no team in La Liga can boast with such achievement but the Madrilenians are far from any excellence. In fact, they are doing rather badly in the Champions League with they have won only one point after two rounds. They suffered a heavy defeat by PSG 3-0 and were very close to lose to Club Brugge at home. They were trailing behind for two goals but they managed pull one point in the end. These results make reaching the round of 16 uncertain. They won four times in La Liga and drew three, the last time in the previous round with Atletico in a city derby that ended as a goalless draw.
Probable lineups Real Madrid: Areola – Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo – Casemiro, T. Kroos, Modric – Bale, Benzema, E. Hazard
Granada is the most pleasant surprise in La Liga so far. The second place in the table confirms the observation and so far there is no indication that a crisis can occur. Granada won only one point in first two rounds, while after that started series of positive results that is still ongoing. They have five-game unbeaten streak that includes four victories, and they drew with Valladolid two rounds ago. In the previous round Granada defeated Leganes 1-0 and fact that manager Martinez had made several changes in the team didn’t make things worse. Number of players is injured but even that didn’t throw them out of rhythm.
Probable lineups Granada: Silva – Diaz, G. Sanchez, Duarte, C. Neva – Montoro, Herrera, Puertas, Azeez – Machis, Soldado
Betting Pick: Real Madrid vs Granada
This could be an interesting match at Santiago Bernabeu as Real struggles and Granada is very dangerous. The guests can be a tough nut to crack and we don’t believe that will play openly given that previous Real matches were also rather inefficient.
Pick: Under 3.5 goals
Odds: 1.70 at bethard (down to 1.60 can be played)
