Real Madrid play away at Granda in search of another victory. A win would mean that they are one step closer to a La Liga title.
With one match less, Real Madrid are only one point above Barcelona. Los Blancos will look to extend their lead to four points again by defeating mid-table Granada.
The two sides met only once this season in a match that Real Madrid won 4-2, making Granada one of only six sides that managed to score more than one goal against Real Madrid this season. While Real Madrid are fighting for the championship, Granada have a small chance of making it to the European competitions. Currently, they are 10th in the table but only three points away from 6th place Getafe. Since the restart, Granada has three wins, two draws and two losses. In the last two games, they managed to beat Real Sociedad 3-2 away and held Valencia to a 2-2 draw at home.
Real Madrid on the other know nothing but winning since La Liga restarted. Real Madrid’s mindset of treating every remaining game like a final makes them incredibly tough to beat.
Real Madrid Injuries and Suspensions
Nacho, Marcelo and Mariano are all injured and remain out of this match. Sergio Ramos and Dani Carvajal return from suspension and will most likely start tonight.
Luka Jovic is still in quarantine, as the protocol requires. James has been left out of the squad for technical reasons.
Real Madrid have no suspended players for tonight’s match.
Courtois; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Mendy; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Asensio, Hazard, Benzema
Granada are an OK side offensively but they defense is weak. Real Madrid on the other hand have an iron defense and a very good attack. Zidane’s men’s mindset for these remaining games is what will give Real Madrid the edge over Granada.
Final Prediction: Granada 0 – 2 Real Madrid
