Match Result – Draw

With both teams having the Europa League quarter-finals on Thursday, this match won’t be the one they will focus on. Of course, that’s not to say that they won’t try to win it, but Europa League will certainly be in the back of their minds. In addition to this, three of the previous five head-to-head matches between Granada and Villarreal have ended in draws, so taking a punt at a draw in this game seems worth the risk.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both of these teams have enough offensive firepower to score, especially since they will not be under some immense pressure for a positive result. Additionally, Villarreal conceded in each of their previous five league games, while Granada conceded in four of their last five La Liga games. Also, both teams scored in three of their previous five head-to-head matches. So, both teams to score seems like a good prediction.

Carlos Bacca to Score Anytime

One of the reasons why we have selected Bacca to score instead of the team’s top scorer Moreno is the fact that Moreno had some injury issues recently, which didn’t stop him from playing for Spain and even scoring in their last game against Kosovo. With the Europa League quarter-finals coming up, Moreno may get some rest in this match, which would make Bacca the focal point of the attacking line. Meanwhile, Bacca has scored three goals in eight games against Granada.

Granada vs Villarreal preview: An exciting duel in Granada

This should be a very interesting match between two solid teams. Both teams have reached the Europa League quarter-finals, so they have a lot of quality. Let’s take a closer look at them.

Granada

The team that managed to achieve a historic result by reaching the quarter-finals of the Europa League is currently 8th in La Liga, but they are nine points away from getting to the Europa League again. And, like their opponents Villarreal, they have a congested schedule with the Manchester United game due on Thursday. Plus, they are in bad form in the league with two wins and three losses in the past five games. Granada will be without Milla, Soro, Foulquier, and Suarez for the upcoming match.

Villarreal

After four straight wins in all competitions, Villarreal is entering this game with a lot of optimism. However, in La Liga, they have only two wins in the last five games. That being said, Villarreal is only a couple of points behind the spot that leads to the Europa League. On the other hand, they also have the first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals against Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday. Juan Foyth will miss the Granada game because of suspension, while Coquelin, Torres, and Rulli are injured.
