Real Madrid vs Granada
Spain – La Liga
Date: Wednesday, 23 December 2020
Kick-off at 18:45 UK/ 19:45 CET
Venue: Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium.
The Los Blancos are the reigning champions of the competition, and after the slow start to their season, they seem to have returned to their earlier form. As of now, they are placed second in the table, just below Atletico.
However, the third-placed Sociedad are pitted against the toppers this same game week, and at least one of them will drop points – which will be a huge chance for Zinedine Zidane’s men to solidify their grip on the podium spots.
Moreover, the title-holders are at home, and they also have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival over the years.
In addition, barring some easy games against some of the worst teams in the table, the Nasrids have not been that spectacular lately.
As such, expect Real Madrid to once again dominate proceedings on the pitch, this Wednesday.
Real Madrid vs Granada: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Los Blancos are on a ten-game winning run.
- In fact, barring a single loss in 2013, they have a 100% winning record against this opponent this decade.
- They have scored a total of 31 goals from the former eight clashes.
- The combined scorecard for the preceding seven meetings at this venue is 29-4, in favor of the hosts.
- The biggest win was recorded by the reigning champions in 2015, when they posted a 9-1 scorecard at home.
Real Madrid vs Granada: Prediction
Zidane’s men recorded a 1-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Eibar. In the meantime, Diego Martinez’s men registered a 2-0 win at home against Betis.
Going on, the Royal Whites are on a five-fixture winning run, and they had scored a total of ten goals from the former four games, while conceding just two.
And at home, they had won 14 of their past 17 appearances, scoring two or more goals in 13 of these match-ups.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in eight of their last thirteen overall match-ups, and of their mere five wins in the process, three had come against teams from lesser divisions.
They also have an embarrassing h2h record against this foe in the past several years. In fact, disregarding a single h2h meeting in 2013, the Los Blancos have a 100% winning record, and in 2015, they had even registered a 9-1 win against this same opponent.
By all means, expect the in-form Real Madrid to show all their might, and deliver a cracker of a performance this Wednesday. In the process, count on them to score in plenty as well.
