Granada vs. Barcelona Predictions and Preview
Granada have made a wonderful start to their league campaign – they have collected seven points from their opening four games.
The newly-promoted side have crucial points on the board and have won successive away matches to nil.
Barcelona have been beset by attacking injuries and a slow start – dropping points in Bilbao and Pamplona but winning each home game 5-2.
The Catalan club will be strong favourites to triumph here but after a midweek Champions League trip to Dortmund, this will be a challenge.
Unsurprisingly due to their stature, the visitors are heavy favourites for this encounter at odds of 32/100 with a Getafe victory priced at 17/2 and the draw available at 17/4.
This fixture tends to produce lots of goals with 23 in the most recent six meetings, so over 3.5 goals at 6/4 appears to be a solid bet with over 4.5 at 16/5.
A ‘double chance’ on Granada to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 23/10 while a Barca win/draw outcome is at 1/20.
If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 10/11 while Barca to score in both halves is 11/10.
One to watch for Granada: Midfielder Antonio Puertas netted 10 league goals last season and already has two this time round.
One to watch for Barcelona: 16-year-old Ansu Fati is the talk of the town at the Camp Nou, netting twice in his first two matches including within five minutes of his first start last time out against Valencia.
Long shot: Granada have conceded just once in their last three matches and have successive clean sheets while Barcelona will be keen for their first clean sheet. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 16/1.
