Game: Real Madrid – Granada
Date: 25 January, Saturday 2014 year
Start time: 15:00 GMT
On Saturday afternoon Real Madrid will go for anything but victory versus mid-table Granada.
The second half of the season has just begun and every point now could turn out to be vital in the later stages of the battle for the first place.
Real Madrid is currently lying in the third place just one point behind rivals from Barcelona and Los Blancos will undoubtedly try to smash Granada and get all three points from this game. The team has achieved nine victories in their last 10 games since they lost from Barca in the end of October.
In their last match Real Madrid secured a convenient 1-0 Copa Del Rey win against Espanyol with Benzema getting on the score sheet early in the game.
Granada looks pretty solid in the 10th position and will hope for a surprise result against famous opponents.
Here we would like to point your attention to the over/under bets.
Although six out of Real Madrid ten La Liga games ended up with a total of more than 4,5 goals, it seems like this will not be the case with their next game.
None of El Granà’s ten championship games witnessed more than 4,5 goals scored and only on two occasion the team suffered heavy defeats – first time against the extra-terrestrials from Barcelona (4-0 at Camp Nou) and second time against Almeria 3-0.
In the last two games Real Madrid and Granada exchanged 1-0 wins and even though CR7 will try to defend his recently awarded Ballon d’Or we would bet on less goals being scored in the game.
Facts before match:
Real Madrid has won 9 out of their last 10 La Liga games.
Granada has a record of 4 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses in their last championship matches
In none of Granada’s last 10 games were scored more than 4,5 goals.
