Match preview: Granada vs Barça

Match preview: Granada vs Barça

Kickoff is on Saturday at 9.00pm CEST at the Nuevo Los Cármenes in Granada, Spain

After the 1-1 draw at Dortmund in the Champions League midweek, Barça return to their domestic duties with a trip to Andalusia to face Granada, who have been on fine form since returning to La Liga after two seasons in the second division.

With further league games against Villarreal and Getafe coming in rapid succession after this, this is a big game for the Catalans, who are still looking for their first Liga win on the road in 2019/20. Boosted by good news on the injury front, Barça will be hoping to extend on a winning streak of six games against Granada, scoring 21 goals and conceding just two.

The game is raising huge expectation in Granada, where temporary terracing has been installed at Los Carmenes to cater for the massive demand for tickets. A fantastic atmosphere seems guaranteed.
