Granada vs Villarreal Prediction & Match Preview



03 April 2021 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET La Liga Nuevo Los Carmenes

Granada and Villarreal go head to head at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes in the La Liga round 29. 

Los Granadinos have been struggling on the travels this season, but they are tough to beat at home. The Andalusians aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Valencia, but the game against Villarreal will be anything but a walk in the park for the home team. 

Keep in mind that all Milla, Soro, Foulquier, Lozano, Suarez, and Sanchez are likely to miss the game with injuries.

The Yellows Submarine, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Eibar and Cadiz, but beating Granada on the road is easier said than done. 

A close encounter is on the horizon, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Juan Foyth is banned for the visitors, while Gerard Moreno, Geronimo Rulli, Pau Francisco Torres, and Francis Coquelin remain in the recovery room.

Team News:

The international break came at a good time for Granada, with the treatment room at the club beginning to get a bit crowded.

Martinez will no doubt be thankful that some of his men are now returning to full fitness.

However, absentees ahead of this weekend's clash include Luis Milla, Alberto Soro, Dimitri Foulquier, Neyder, Luis Suarez and Pepe Sanchez.

Emery will likely name a largely unchanged side to the one that beat Cadiz last time out, however, Paco Alcacer could replace Moreno during the game in order to preserve the attacker's energy for their midweek Europa League clash with Dynamo Zagreb.

Makeshift midfielder Juan Foyth, who is suspended for this weekend's tie, is expected to be replaced by Moi Gomez or Yeremi Pino, a move that would alter the shape of Emery's side.

Francis Coquelin is the only other absentee coming into this game.

Granada possible starting lineup:
Silva; Quini, Duarte, Sanchez, Diaz; Kenedy, Herrera, Quina, Eteki, Vico; Soldado

Villarreal possible starting lineup:
Asenjo; Mario, Albiol, Torres, Estupinan; Chukwueze, Parejo, Gomez, Trigueros; Moreno, Bacca
