Barcelona vs. Granada Match Analysis and Prediction

Barcelona has a golden chance to take charge of their title race midweek when they play host to Granada. The match schedules for Thursday at Camp Nou in a top-flight battle with kickoff at 8 pm.

La Blaugrana kept their title race hopes alive last weekend with a 2-1 win over Villarreal last time out, whereas Granada’s two-game winning streak came to an end when they faced Sevilla.

A victory this week, and Barcelona gets back into the La Liga title race conversation while taking the lead. Ronald Koeman’s side had a troubled start in the first half campaign; however, they have made up for it in due time.

Furthermore, the La Blaugrana benefitted with Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid dropping points during the weekend. Real Madrid was held to a 0-0 draw to Real Betis while Atletico lost to Athletic Bilbao.

The El-Clasico’s defeat marks the only defeat for the Catalan giants in 2021, with Koeman overseeing 15 wins from his side’s last 17 league matches. Moreover, the side continues searching for their fifth home visit when Granada visits this week.

In contrast, Granada can cherish a good season after almost making the Europa League semi-finals. However, making it next season remains a major hurdle for Diego Martinez especially following their 2-1 loss. In the reverse fixture, Granada thrashed their opponents 4-0 back on January 9.
