The 2020-21 edition of La Liga is back in action with another round of fixtures this weekend as Sevilla take on Granada at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium on Sunday. Sevilla have been excellent this season and hold all the cards going into this game.
Granada are in eighth place in the La Liga standings at the moment and have been impressive this season. The away side thrashed Eibar by a 4-1 margin earlier this week and will be confident ahead of this match.
Sevilla, on the other hand, find themselves in the title race after an excellent run of results and are only six points behind league-leaders Atletico Madrid. The Andalusians edged Levante to a 1-0 victory in their previous game and will need to win this fixture.
Sevilla vs Granada Head-to-Head
Sevilla have a good record against Granada and have won 10 games out of a total of 17 matches played between the two teams. Granada have managed only five victories against Sevilla and will need to be at their best this weekend.
The previous meeting between the two teams took place in October last year and ended in a shock 1-0 victory for Granada. Sevilla were well below their best on the day and will need to do a better job on Sunday.
