Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 20
Kick-off:
Venue: Camp Nou (Barcelona)
Quique Setien will take to the dugouts as Barca coach for the first time following his appointment after erstwhile boss, Ernesto Valverde’s dismissal. The Catalan giants recently suffered a disappointing collapse against Atletico Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup – a match which effectively sealed Valverde’s fate.
In the La Liga this season, Barca have struggled for form at times. They have lost three matches already, the same amount of matches they lost throughout last season. Be that as it may, they remain top of the standings, level on points with Real Madrid, but ahead on goal difference.

In the reverse fixture, Granada claimed a shock 2-1 win over Barcelona, in what is undoubtedly one of the highlights of their season so far. The newcomers have performed reasonably well in the league so far, a fact reflected by their league standing. El Grana are firmly rooted mid-table, tenth on the log with 27 points so far, and are guaranteed to remain there regardless of the outcome of this match.

Barcelona vs Granada Team News

In their last league game of the year 2019, Barcelona played out a disappointing 2-2 draw away at fierce rivals Espanyol in the Catalan derby. The league leaders conceded a late equalizer in a match that saw midfielder, Frenkie De Jong get sent off. Despite dropping points in that fixture, Barca remain unbeaten in their last eight league matches, with their last defeat coming in a shock 3-1 defeat at Levante in November. They have won five and drawn three matches in this period.

Not only do the Catalan giants top the league standings, they also have the best attack, which is to be expected given the presence of a certain Lionel Messi. They have found the back of the net a stunning 49 times in 19 games, way clear of Real Madrid in second with 38. Defensively, Barca have struggled at times this season. They have conceded 23 goals already, which is the joint sixth best defensive record in the league – simply not good enough.

The Camp Nou has been nothing short of a fortress for FC Barcelona this season. They are yet to lose at home this season, and have dropped points just once in their last nine clashes.

Granada gave their fans something to cheer for, following their narrow 1-0 over strugglers, Mallorca in their last league run out. Angel Montoro’s first half goal was enough to secure the win and halt Granada’s two-game losing streak.

Be that as it may, the visitors are in dismal form and have won just twice in their last nine league outings. They have also suffered defeats in each of their last five league matches away from home.

Granada are perfectly balanced in terms of goals scored and goals conceded with 25 goals apiece. However, they have failed to find the back of the net in their last three matches away.

Keep in mind that will be a sort of grudge match as revenge will be on Barca’s mind following their surprising 2-0 defeat in the first leg of this fixture.

Barcelona vs Granada Predictions

Barca are simply ruthless when it comes to playing in front of their home fans. They have won eight out of their nine league fixtures at Camp Nou this season, scoring thirty-four goals in the process.

Granda simply can’t seem to score away from home; hence, we are tipping Barca to win this comfortably with an accompanying clean sheet.
