Barcelona vs Granada Prediction
Barcelona painstakingly missed out on the ticket to the finals of the Super Cup after Atletico Madrid got the better of them with a 3-2 scorecard last week. Nevertheless, the hosts have not been showing any signs on slowing down in their La Liga campaign, and are currently on an eight-match unbeaten streak in the same.
It is also worth mentioning that the Catalans have stumbled just thrice this season.
On the other hand, the Granada faithful were finally given a reason to cheer, as their squad took down Mallorca, by a narrow 1-0 scoreline, in their most recent fixture. The win brought a dismal two-match losing streak to a halt and has also kept them tenth on the ladder.
However, the newly-promoted side have been struggling to find their feet this term. Miserably, they have come away with the win just twice in their past nine games in the top flight.
To make matters worse, the guests have been admitting back to back defeats in their previous five La Liga outings on the trot. In sharp contrast, the Camp Nou has been nothing short of a fortress so far.
The Catalans are yet to feature at the losing end here and have dropped points just once in their last nine clashes. Taking into account that they have made no mistake in securing the bragging rights in their previous meetings with this foe at home as well, count on Barcelona to win without breaking much of a sweat in this one.
Furthermore, Granada have been virtually invisible in the final third. They have lost each of their past three trips on the road without so much as a consolation goal to their name.
To top it off, the visitors have not found the back of the net in any of their previous five h2h meetings here. As such, count on Barcelona to win and to do so with a clean sheet intact.
