Real Madrid have quelled talks of manager Zinedine Zidane's job being on the line with some impressive performances. They sit second in the league table, and players like Luka Modric and Karim Benzema have been in excellent form.

Granada, on the other hand, sit sixth in the league table and have done well under the management of Diego Martinez. Midfielder Yangel Herrera, on loan from Manchester City, has looked good, and Granada could prove to be a problem for Real Madrid.

Los Blancos will be the favorites to win the game, but Granada should not be underestimated.

Prediction: Real Madrid 2-1 Granada
