Granada CF will face Elche on Sunday - La Liga Santander

La Liga returns this weekend after a two-week hiatus and will see Elche host Granada on Sunday in the 19th matchday of the Spanish top-flight.

Elche, who avoided the drop last season by just two points, are currently struggling this campaign as well. The hosts brilliantly scored twice in one minute against Barcelona last time out to cancel out a two-goal deficit, but then succumbed to a late winner by the Blaugrana.

Elche sit 17th in the league table with just 15 points picked up so far. They are joint on points with Deportivo Alaves in the first relegation spot and one point ahead of Cadiz in the second.

Granada are performing much better than Sunday's hosts at the moment. They beat defending champions Atletico Madrid 2-1 last time out.

The visitors showed commendable character to complete a comeback after falling behind in the first two minutes of the game.

Granada are 12th in the La Liga standings with 22 points from 18 games. They will be looking to continue their strong run when they take on Elche this weekend.
