Real Madrid vs Granada Preview: Match preview, betting odds, head to head, and more | LaLiga 2019/20
Los Blancos currently top the pile with 15 points accrued so far and will be looking to consolidate their position against a very impressive Granada side, which has accumulated an impressive 14 points with 4 wins, 2 draws, and a loss.
Zinedine Zidane's men will come into this game seeking to break a sequence of draws, after sharing the spoils against Atletico Madrid and Club Brugge in LaLiga and the Champions League respectively. However, this will be a tricky tie against a Granada side which has already beaten Catalan giants, Barcelona, this season.
History is firmly in the corner of Real Madrid heading into this tie, because the Andalusian club has lost to Los Blancos in 14 of their last 15 LaLiga encounters, with a Cristiano Ronaldo own goal in 2013 handing Granada the only win in that period.
