Real Madrid vs Granada
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Saturday, 05 October 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabéu (Madrid).
As the two toppers of the Spanish league take on each other, goals are a sure-fire expectation. Moreover, with the enormous advantage of their experience over the years, the home advantage, and predominantly with the intense desire to get back on track after their so-far unimpressive European campaign, Real should figure out a way to come out on top this weekend.

Real Madrid vs Granada Prediction
In a surprising turn of events, the Los Blancos are messing up their European performances, and are compensating for it with good results in the domestic circuit. This has been in stark contrast to the previous years where they had been virtually invincible in Champions League ties.
At present, the team is at the top of the La Liga table and is unbeaten until this point. They have also found the back of the net in every single home tie so far, and with main competitors Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid struggling to get their rhythm back, this campaign would be a huge opportunity for the 13-time CL champions to add to their tally of domestic titles.
They have dominated this opponent emphatically over the years in h2h ties. In fact, Zidane’s men registered wins in the last eight such games in a row, and in 11 of the prior 12 as well. At the Bernabeu, they hold a 100% win-record, and they have posted a combined scoreline of 25-2 from the previous six fixtures combined at the stadium.
As such, the basic expectation is for the team to easily record a win this Saturday.
But consider that the opponents are one of the best teams in the competition at the moment, and after defeating Barca, they will look to make it a double feature by pulling one over Madrid too. In addition, they are unbeaten on the road and are yet to fail to find the back of the net in road games.
Consequently, the best bet is for goals to come at either end of the pitch.
