Granada vs Atletico Madrid
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 11th March 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes.
Granada have been terrific in the last couple of matches at Nuevo Los Carmenes. The team escaped from the foot of the Primera Division standings thanks to three consecutive victories on the home pitch.
Lucas Alcaraz and his men will have one hell of a task to maintain the fine home form this Saturday when they host Atletico Madrid.
Granada have had a nice opportunity to make a huge step towards safety when they faced fellow strugglers Leganes in the last round.
However, the team suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat to keep up with the disastrous performances on the road where they have seven losses on the trot.
Atleti will come in the game in high spirits after destroying in-form Valencia at Vicente Calderon. Antoine Griezmann completed a brace while his fellow compatriot Kevin Gameiro added another in a comfortable 3-0 win for Atletico.
Diego Simeone thus returned to the winning ways after the defeat to Barcelona and a draw with Deportivo La Coruna.

Atleti have been brutal in head to head clashes with Granada. The team from Vicente Calderon took as many as nine wins and played two draws in 11 matches with Nazaries.

Interestingly, Isaac Cuenca pushed Granada in charge early in the game, but Yannick Carrasco came up with the hat-trick to turn the game around. Nico Gaitan scored a brace, while Angel Correa and Tiago also got their names on the scoresheet.
