Real Madrid vs Granada

Real Madrid’s pursuit of winning a second La Liga title in three years continues at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu against second-from-bottom Granada.

Despite falling behind inside the first ten minutes of their midweek Champions League encounter against Napoli, Real Madrid preserved their 100% win record in Group C with an emphatic 4-2 victory, making it four wins on the trot across all competitions. Last weekend’s comfortable 3-0 win at Cadiz fired ‘Los Blancos’ back to the top of the La Liga standings, courtesy of a superior H2H record to Girona. Carlo Ancelotti’s men are scoring for fun, netting 3+ goals in their last four competitive outings, underscoring their status as odds-on favorites in this contest. To say ‘Los Blancos’ have dominated this fixture would be an understatement, considering they’ve won all nine top-flight H2Hs at home in the 21st century via an aggregate score of 32-4!

Turning their disastrous fortunes in the capital seems like a pipe dream for hot relegation candidates Granada, who take this trip amid a dismal four-game losing run in competitive away action. Deeply embedded in the relegation scrap, the visitors lament an embarrassing win ratio of just 7% after the opening 14 La Liga rounds (D4, L9). As one of only two sides to have conceded 30+ goals in league action this term (33), the ‘Nazaries’ seem destined to extend their humiliating 14-match losing streak against Real Madrid, a side they last defeated in 2013. Things get worse on the road, as you’d need to go back to 1974 for Granada’s last away victory against Real Madrid, painting a bleak picture for new manager Alexander Medina.
