Granada vs Barcelona: Prediction
Granada goal keeper Ivan Kelava revealed on Wednesday that his team is looking to replicate the 1-0 win over the Blaugrana when they hosted them in 2014. Coming back on a thumping 4-1 win over Sevilla in the weekend which helped them avoid relegation, the Granada side will be high on confidence.
But Barcelona are the outright favorites in this game, with no arguments, I pitch my tent with the Catalonian club and I also expect them to score many goals, around 3 or 4 goals.
I predict Barcelona to win both halves though its risky but I think they will also score in both halves.
