Granada vs Real Madrid Odds And Spread


Real Madrid Déjà vu!

Midweek, Real Madrid qualified for another UCL final. Once again, Los Blancos came from behind to win the semifinal against Bayern Munich in stoppage time. Believe it or not, the German side was up 1-0 until the 87th minute when Joselu Matos scored the equalizer. Four minutes later, Matos scored again to avoid extra-time.

Real Madrid will face Borussia Dortmund in the Grand finale on June 1. In the meantime, they must finish the La Liga season, where they still have to face Granada, Deportivo Alaves, Villarreal, and Real Betis. Most recently, they beat Cadiz 3-0 with some starters out.

Some injured players are coming back at the perfect time, including goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and centre-back Eder Militao, allowing head coach Carlo Ancelotti to rotate the starting lineup, which means fresher legs for crucial matches.

Real Madrid is 12-4-1 on the road in league games. That lone defeat was in September against Atletico Madrid, a much better team than Granada. Since then, they’re 9-4-0 and finished with a clean sheet six times.

Last Stand for Granada? Desperate Fight for Survival vs Real Madrid

Unlike Real Madrid, Granada will finish the season trophyless and are one defeat away from finishing in the relegation zone. In fact, even if they managed to win here, they could still be relegated.

Most recently, they lost 3-0 to Sevilla but won their last home match with that same result. They are somewhat better playing at home, where they own a 4-6-7 record. In contrast, they haven’t won a single game on the road (0-3-14). No wonder they’re in the relegation zone, right?

Myrto Uzuni is one of the team’s few bright spots. He has scored 11 goals, including five in the last 10 matches. If he wants to make a push to sign for a bigger club, scoring against Real Madrid would be huge. Regardless of the result, make sure to include him and Matos in your soccer picks this weekend.
