Granada vs Mallorca
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: Sunday, 14 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes (Granada).
Granada host Mallorca in the derby of the Matchday on Sunday evening at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes. The hosts come into it high on confidence after bagging six goals in back-to-back wins over Cordoba and Reus Deportiu. They sit second in the league ladder with five wins, two draws and a single defeat in eight games so far.
Mallorca, who returned to the second division from Segunda B last year, confounded their pre-season ambitions. They are currently 6th and could represent a major force in the promotional contest until the very end of the campaign.
Los Bermellones will also head into the derby high on confidence. They bagged an impressive four-goal tally in the drubbing of Tenerife last weekend. Four different players added their names on the scoresheet (Cabrera, Lago, Prats and Lopez).
