Barcelona’s Quest for Dominance vs Granada’s Battle for Survival

Key Stats
– Barcelona have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight away La Liga fixtures.
– Granada have managed to remain unbeaten against Barcelona in their last three encounters.
– Both teams have found the net in their last four face-offs.

The picturesque Nuevo Estadio de Los Carmenes awaits an enticing clash this Sunday evening, as Barcelona travel with hopes to clinch their third consecutive victory across all competitions. Meanwhile, Granada, despite their recent ascend to the top-flight following their Segunda Division triumph, are grappling to find solid footing in La Liga.

Granada, under the stewardship of Paco Lopez, seem to be struggling this season, accumulating a mere five points from their initial eight matches. A stark contrast to Barcelona, who sit proudly in second place with 20 points. Recent forms depict Granada’s stammering start, with a single victory and two draws to their name. Their most recent encounter with Almeria witnessed a thrilling comeback from being three goals down, displaying their never-give-up spirit. Interestingly, history is on their side as they remain unbeaten in their last three clashes against the Catalan giants.

Barcelona, fresh from their 1-0 Champions League triumph over Porto, enter this fixture in high spirits. With a promising beginning to their La Liga campaign, they’re just a point adrift of leaders Real Madrid. However, their campaign has been marred by injuries, most notably their star striker Robert Lewandowski. Barcelona’s subsequent fixtures post this game will see them play on their home ground, culminating with the El Clasico against Real Madrid.

Key Players and Lineups

Granada’s squad has its fair share of talent. Lucas Boye and Myrto Uzuni, with a combined tally of six goals this season, are expected to spearhead Granada’s attack. On the other hand, Barcelona, with Lewandowski sidelined due to injury, are likely to rely on Ferran Torres, who recently showcased his worth with a crucial goal against Porto. The Catalans will also miss the services of Raphinha, Frenkie de Jong, and Pedri due to injuries.

Statistical Insights and Analysis

A deep dive into the teams’ performances, based on BettingTips4You Expert Ratings, offers intriguing insights. Granada’s struggle this season is apparent with an average rating of 6.67, the lowest in the competition. They’ve conceded 21 goals while only netting 13. Their ball possession stands at 46.1%, indicating a somewhat reactive approach.

Barcelona, with a stellar average rating of 7.16, boasts of scoring 19 and letting in just eight. Their dominant playstyle is further highlighted by an impressive 68.6% ball possession. However, a chink in their armour is evident with them maintaining only a single away clean sheet in eight La Liga fixtures.


1. Match Outcome: Both Teams to Score

Given the historical records and recent form, a goal-packed encounter is on the horizon. Both Barcelona and Granada have displayed an attacking zeal, making their matches highly anticipated by neutrals. Barcelona’s prowess upfront is undeniable. Yet, even with their attacking flair, they have managed just a single clean sheet in their last eight La Liga away fixtures. Granada, while struggling, have managed to find the net in all their home games during the 2023/24 season. Furthermore, the last four meetings between these teams have seen both sides scoring. Thus, betting on both teams to find the net seems a justifiable choice.

2. Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 in favour of Barcelona

Granada might have the upper hand in recent face-offs against Barcelona, but current forms heavily favour the Catalan giants. Barcelona sit second in the league, just a point behind leaders Real Madrid. On the other hand, Granada languishes in the 19th position. Despite Granada’s home advantage, Barcelona’s quality is expected to shine through, but not without resistance from the hosts. Given Barcelona’s defensive vulnerabilities away from home and Granada’s persistence at their ground, a 2-1 scoreline in favour of Barcelona seems plausible.

3. Goalscorer Prediction: Ferran Torres

With Robert Lewandowski sidelined due to an ankle injury, Ferran Torres is likely to be the focal point of Barcelona’s attack. He’s already displayed his goal-scoring prowess, netting the decisive goal against Porto recently. Moreover, his form this season has seen him bag three goals in La Liga. Given his current trajectory and the responsibility on his shoulders in the absence of Lewandowski, Torres emerges as a prime candidate to find the back of the net in this encounter.

4. Corner Prediction: Barcelona to Win More Corners, Total Corners: Over 10.5

When we scrutinise the teams’ styles of play, Barcelona’s possession-based approach and their tendency to stretch play often results in numerous corner opportunities. On average, they have won 6.4 corners per game this season. Granada, despite their more direct approach, still average 4.9 corners per match. Cumulatively, this suggests the game might witness over 10.5 corners. With Barcelona’s pressing style and greater ball possession, they are likely to win the majority of these set-pieces, indicating they might end up with more corners than Granada in the fixture.
