Granada vs Atletico Madrid: Match preview
One of the most interesting matches of this round will be played in Granada. The team of the same name will welcome Atletico Madrid at their home ground. In the first few rounds Granada footballers were the most pleasant surprise, and even at one point they were in the number one position, but it still lasted for a while.
Now we can talk freely about the crisis of this team. Granada does not know about winning in the last three matches, and in that period they suffered three tied defeats. Still, it must be admitted that the schedule was not very bright, but that does not detract from the fact that the players of this team do not play as well as at the start of the championship, when they just grind all their opponents.
As for Atletico Madrid, this team plays fantastic on home soil, but they have a big guest problem where have only won two wins so far. The last one was at the end of September when they celebrated against Mallorca.
Granada team news:
It was logical to expect that they would lower the fierce pace with which Granada entered the new season. It is normal for this team not to be able to fight for the top spot. It is a much more suitable position at the moment for them and that is eighth place.
But Granada is still a positive refresh of the season. She has already accumulated 20 points so far. After such a start, they are certainly a few steps closer to their only goal that was current at the beginning of the season, which is to ensure survival.
Granada has lost the last three games in a row. The question is how far this negative streak will take, but Atletico, despite all its shortcomings, is a very delicate rival to break the black streak on the scoreboard. As a host Granada has a great defense, only three goals scored over six games.
Probable lineup: Silva, Quini, Martinez, Duarte, Neva, Herrera, Gonalons, Montoro, Puertas, Vadillo, Soldado
Atletico Madrid team news:
Atletico is very close to the big two competitors in the rankings. Has a point less than Barcelona and Real Madrid, but also one match more played. However, not many fans are satisfied with their favorite games this season and with each new game the number of those who are dissatisfied with coach Simeone and the way the club is going this season is slowly increasing.
The defense is not in dispute – only eight goals received in 13 appearances. Still, overall Atletico has struggled far more in the game than in recent years. Injuries are still a great problem. The club give few goals and there is no continuity in which the true results are achieved.
Probable lineup: Oblak, Trippier, Felipe, Hermoso, Lodi, Correa, Llorente, Koke, Herrera, Joao Felix, Morata
As for this match, it should be noted that Granada is playing fantastic in their home ground.Still, this time they are hosting Atletico, who strongly want a new triumph on the side. All this can bring us goals on both side, but Atletico will win also for sure.
