Granada vs Espanyol
Spanish La Liga
Date: Friday, 19th May 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes.
Granada and Espanyol have the honour to open the last round of the season in Primera Division this Friday at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes.
The match will have no importance whatsoever since it has been clear long time ago that Granada will join Segunda Division next year, while Espanyol have nowhere to go ahead of the last game of the campaign.
It will be interesting to see if the English manager Tony Adams will stay and lead the team from Nuevo Los Carmenes in the second tier of the Spanish football.
He can’t be quite proud of the fact that Granada lost the last weekend’s clash to Osasuna on the road to take the very foot of the standings.
Espanyol have been enjoying quite a decent shape from mid-March to mid-April, but the team’s form is currently going downside.
The home loss to Valencia on Saturday was third in last five fixtures for Quique Sanchez Flores and his men.
Granada vs Espanyol: Head to head
Espanyol have been the much more successful side when it comes to head to head meetings.
The Catalan team took six wins from 11 matches losing no more than two during the process.
It is interesting to note that each of the last five H2H encounters saw the option of both teams scoring.
Granada vs Espanyol: Prediction
It is hard to predict the outcome of such a match because none of the two sides will have an imperative in the last game of the season.
Quique Sanchez Flores will most likely use the mixed lineup which gives value to the 19/20 odds offered by the bookies on Granada not to lose their last game in the elite.
