Atletico Madrid vs Granada
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 27 September 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).
With an unbeaten streak in the La Liga fixtures, Atletico Madrid will come in hot to the opening match of the campaign this season. After their loss in the Champions League last season, Diego Simeone and his men haven’t appeared in any major competitions.
Granada had two back-to-back home matches in the league this season, which gave them an impressive start to the campaign. But facing a top team in the mix will not be a walk in the park for the Nazaries. In both the clashes, the away team has scored 4 goals with an average of 2.0 goals.
Atletico Madrid vs Granada Head-to-head (h2h)

Atletico Madrid vs Granada Prediction
Atletico Madrid had only 4 losses in their 38 league appearances last season. However, out of their unbeaten games, the host had 16 draws and 18 wins. They have scored 51 goals in that season against 17 goals conceded in return.
Granada is on a five-game winning streak across all major competitions in the schedule. They will play on the behalf of two successive home wins in the fixtures this season. However, their squad strength will not be enough to suffice the host at the latter’s strongest suit.
Besides, Los Rojiblancos have never lost to Granada in their h2h meetings since 2001. Only three of those 15 h2h clashes have ended in a draw. So, the home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters to yield decent returns.
The host’s last two wins against the Nazaries came with the same 1-0 scoreline. Simeone’s boys have averaged 3.0 goals per match in the h2h clashes at home against the visitors. So, the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably come in handy for the punters.
