Sevilla vs Granada predictions, H2H and match preview for this Saturday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups ahead of this Andalusian derby at the RSP.
Sevilla vs Granada Preview
The final game on Saturday in La Liga is an Andalusian derby as Granada travel to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. These two sides are both enjoying strong seasons in La Liga and both have also made progress into the last 16 of the Copa del Rey which takes place next week. The onus will be on the hosts to dictate the tempo here as they look to move back into 3rd place.
Any minor title ambitions Sevilla may have had looked to be extinguished last weekend as they lost 2-1 at Real Madrid to fall 8 points behind Los Blancos and Barcelona. Securing a top four finish will be the priority now and Julen Lopetegui’s men look well placed to do that particularly having added a new striker in the shape of former Leganes man Youssef En-Nesyri although the Moroccan may have to wait for his first start given Luuk de Jong’s fine strike last weekend.
Granada also have a new signing. They sealed a loan deal for Jesús Vallejo on Friday after the Real Madrid man’s unsuccessful stint at Wolves was ended. He adds a fresh option in defence although it’s at the other end where Granada have struggled on the road of late with Diego Martinez’s side having lost each of their last 4 away league games to nil.
That should offer Sevilla plenty of encouragement here as they look to get back to winning ways in La Liga. The suspension of Ever Banega doesn’t help their cause but Julen Lopetegui is hopeful that Joan Jordan can shake off an injury to feature. Granada meanwhile are missing both German Sanchez and Carlos Fernandez to suspension.
Sevilla vs Granada Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-0 Sevilla
Granada are likely to set up with a similar kind of game-plan to what they did at Camp Nou last weekend. The absence of German Sanchez is a particular blow though and losing is starting to become a bit of a habit for them on the road now so it’s difficult to look past a Sevilla win here.
