Valencia vs Granada Prediction
Valencia scripted an impressive comeback the previous match-day, against Lille, in the Champions League. The former did have the home advantage, but do note that they were trailing 0-1 even as the match-clock showed 66 minutes.
But then something clicked between the home players. In the next remaining few minutes, they fired in four goals to complete a monumental victory, and three of those goals had come in the span of the final eight minutes.
Meanwhile, Granada was completely undone in their last road trip, by Getafe. The result could have been anticipated by the end of the first half itself, as the hosts were leading 2-0 at that time. Though later the visiting contingent cut down the lead with a goal of their own, it was soon negated by the hosts to complete a 3-1 triumph.
This Saturday, the home advantage will in all probability play a role in determining the outcome. Keep note that Granada is no longer the team that stood at the top of the table. As of now, they have lost their last two games and conceded twice or more in both. On the road, they were defeated in their prior two road trips and conceded thrice or more in both.
Furthermore, Valencia has lost just twice in their prior twelve overall match-days, and just once in their previous nine appearances in front of the home crowd.
Moreover, and most importantly, previous h2h clashes have been severely skewed in the direction of Valencia. They have been unbeaten against this opponent in the past nine years. In addition, at this venue, disregarding a single draw, they hold a 100% winning record as well.
Taking these convincing stats into account, count on Valencia to emerge victorious at the end of the ninety minutes.
