Valencia will look to maintain an unbeaten La Liga record at the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes in the 21st century (W5, D1) when they take on Granada in a mid-table clash this weekend.
The hosts have ended a four-game winless La Liga run (D2, L2) last time out with a 2-0 away win over Alaves, which now means that three of their four previous league matches have featured under 2.5 goals. At home in La Liga, all eight of Granada’s last games have ended separating the sides by under 1.5 goals (W4, D1, L3), with five of those seven results (win/loss) producing the identical 2-1 scoreline. In turn, each of their last three competitive H2Hs held here has seen over 2.5 goals and both teams on the scoresheet (W1, L2). Granada’s home action usually sparks into life in the second half, as 64.52% (20) of the 31 league home goals (scored/conceded) so far arrived after the halftime break.
On the other hand, the visitors have yet to find their footing after the league’s restart, securing just one win from six La Liga matches in the posts-pandemic period (D1, L4). Curiously, all of their five results during that six-game sequence have seen the winner on the day keep a clean sheet, with the last four all witnessing the opening goal arrive inside the first 16 minutes of play. Another potential worry for Valencia could be a disastrous away form that saw them fail to pick up a win in eight consecutive La Liga road games ahead of this trip (D2, L6). Particularly ponderous in the final third before the break, Los Ches have scored just six of their 15 league away goals netted in the first half (40%).
