Barcelona vs Granada Prediction: La Liga Match on 20.09.2021
Barcelona were given a hammering in their midweek opener in the Champions League by Bayern Munich, but they will be hoping to bounce back in their return to domestic action this weekend as they take on Granada.
La Liga Preview
Everyone that has footballing knowledge are aware of the mess that Barcelona find themselves in, but there was further evidence this past week just how far the Catalan giants have fallen. The side that previously dominated Europe were weak at both ends of the field at Nou Camp on Tuesday, as they were handed an opening night defeat in the Champions League by Bayern Munich. It was just a case of how many the Bavarians wanted to score in that fixture, as they broke through at ease on countless occasions to claim a 3-0 success. Barcelona currently sit seventh in the league standings this season after picking up two wins from their first three games. Their most recent win came at home against Getafe, with Sergi Roberto and Memphis Depay scoring in the success.
Granada are yet to record a victory in La Liga this season, and sit in 17th in the league standings. It could be a long season for them this term, as they have scored just two goals in the four games that they have played, and have allowed seven. They were beaten for the second straight game in La Liga last weekend, as Real Betis took maximum points on the road, winning 2-1 against Granada. Granada may have believed that they had done enough to take a point from the game when Luis Suarez equalised with half an hour remaining. However, Betis stole the points when they scored the winner one minute from time.
Barcelona vs Granada Head to Head
Granada’s record against Barcelona is surprisingly good, as they have picked up wins in two of the previous four fixtures. Last season, they also won at the Nou Camp for the first time in their history in La Liga. Their 2-1 win at the famous stadium in April was a huge moment for the club. Prior to that defeat, Barcelona had won the last seven meetings between the sides at home.
Barcelona vs Granada Prediction
It has been a difficult week for Barcelona, but this could be the perfect fixture to respond. Granada have been weak defensively so far this season, and Barcelona can take full advantage of that by claiming a comfortable victory.
