Alaves come into the game on the back of a 2-0 away win at Elche, which helped them move four points clear of the relegation zone. They have 35 points from 36 games, and a win on Sunday will virtually ensure they play in the Spanish top-flight next season.
Granada were battered 4-1 by title chasing Real Madrid in their most recent league game. However, that result has not moved them out of the top half of the table, as they are positioned in the tenth spot thanks to 45 points from 36 matches.
Alaves vs Granada Head-to-Head
The two teams have only played five games between them so far. Alaves have a solitary win, while Granada have ruled the roost with wins in the other four fixtures.
Alaves and Granada last played at the Nuevo Estadio de Los Cármenes back in September 2020, in a game in which the hosts prevailed with a scoreline of 2-1.
Roberto Soldado's opener was canceled out by Joselu's goal, but Darwin Machis restored Granada's advantage with a 79th minute strike, which ended up being the winner.
