Both Teams to Score – Yes

The home team has shown this season that they can score even when they’re playing against the best teams in the league, so our prediction is for both teams to score in this match. Even though Real Madrid has been pretty good at keeping clean sheets, which they have done in 46% of their matches in La Liga, they often concede goals when they are playing teams from the top half of the standings. Furthermore, both teams have scored in 60% of Granada’s matches this season, so this bet sounds good to us.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

So, we expect both teams to score, so it’s only logical to expect a high-scoring game as well. Granada is third in the league in goals per game, with a 2.89 average. Real Madrid is not that far away with an average of 2.63 goals per game, so we expect to see at least three goals in their duel. Furthermore, four of the last five h2h meetings between these teams have gone over 2.5 total goals, which is a good sign.

Karim Benzema to Score at Any Time

Since we expect to see some goals in this game, the second-best goalscorer in the Spanish league this season certainly has a great chance to find the net. The French striker has been sensational the whole year and he carried Real Madrid on his back with 21 goals in La Liga. So, our prediction is for Benzema to add at least one more goal to his tally against Granada.

Granada vs Real Madrid preview: Can Real Madrid stay in the title race?

The home team now only has theoretical chances of getting a spot in the Europa League, while Real Madrid is still chasing their city rivals in the race for the title. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams:

Granada

With losses in the previous two rounds, Granada has lost all chances of getting into the Europa League, except for very slim, theoretical ones. Unfortunately, they will have to wait for another chance to repeat their historic success of reaching the EL quarter-finals.  So, it’s safe to say that they can now play without any pressure and they’ve already shown how dangerous they can be when they’ve beaten Barcelona at Camp Nou. Kenedy, Lozano, Milla, Neva, and Vallejo are unavailable for the Real Madrid game.

Real Madrid

After barely getting a draw against Sevilla at home with a goal in the stoppage time, Real Madrid has wasted a good opportunity to get on equal terms with Atletico Madrid at the top. Instead, they are two points behind their city rivals, along with Barcelona, with three games left in the season. Real is also struggling with injuries since Carvajal, Lucas, Mendy, Ramos, and Varane are out of the upcoming duel with Granada.
