Granada vs Real Madrid, With their now in their own hands, Real Madrid will strive to keep their hopes of glory alive when they visit Granada on Thursday evening.
The hosts lost 2-1 to Real Betis on Monday night, while Zinedine Zidane's crop lost the title race with a 2-2 draw against fellow top players Sevilla.
A streak of three defeats from their last four matches has shattered Granada's fleeting hopes in Europe, and even a historic 2-1 win at home to Barcelona has not inspired former Europa League contenders to finish the job against Cadiz or Real Betis.
Diego Martinez's men quickly trailed Betis to Borja Iglesias' opener in the 39th minute before Darwin Machis looked to save a point for his side, but Iglesias doubled his goal of the night in the 87th minute for all but to kill Granada's top seven hopes.
The hosts are now lying right in the middle of the standings in 10th place, and they need another result to get their way while they try to pull off a shock against Real Madrid this week, but seventh-placed Villarreal will be out of sight if they can win against. Real Valladolid hours before Granada's action.
Martinez's men can look forward to two winnable matches against Alaves and Getafe before the season ends, and while it may be too late for their European hopes at that point, a top-half finish will certainly represent a successful season.
Granada is gearing up for a battle with Real Madrid after failing to keep a clean sheet in their last eight matches, but they have lost only three of their last 12 games at home before title hunters Zidane attempted to defend their crown. life.
With the La Liga title now Real Madrid's only chance of winning a trophy this season, Zidane's side have continued to drop points at the worst of times, but they will be grateful that their title rivals have also been far from perfect in recent weeks.
The goalless stalemate between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid gave Zidane's men the ultimate opportunity to leapfrog their city rivals at the top of the table when they welcome Sevilla to the capital, but they had to come from behind twice only to save a point as substitutes for Marco Asensio and Eden Hazard. cancel attacks from Fernando and Ivan Rakitic.
A two-point gap now separates Real from leaders Atletico at the top of the table - while Barcelona are only behind Los Blancos by head-to-head points - and Zidane's men could drop to third before Thursday if their title rivals win early. Sunday.
At first glance, two wins from their last eight matches in all competitions may be a serious concern, but Zidane's side have put up a 15-game unbeaten run in La Liga and haven't lost an away game at home since November - won. seven and draw five away since the defeat at Valencia in 2020.
Real Madrid grabbed a 2-0 win over Granada just before Christmas, and the result represented their 11th successive success against Martinez's men, who last won over the capital team in 2013.
Granada forward Roberto Soldado will serve his second sentence from a three-match ban this week after being sent off against Cadiz, while Angel Montoro had to leave after 13 minutes on Monday with a suspected hamstring problem.
Yangel Herrera and Domingos Duarte were also victims of Monday's match with respective quadriceps and knee injuries, and the two players - along with Montoro - joined Kenedy, Jesus Vallejo and Carlos Neva in the treatment room.
Therefore, Martinez will be forced to make some changes to the game, with players like Nehuen Perez, Yan Eteki and Fede Vico expected to replace each member of the trio who was recently injured.
Real Madrid's defensive concerns are well documented as Dani Carvajal, Lucas Vazquez and Ferland Mendy remain sidelined, while their full-back options may also run out as Marcelo and Alvaro Odriozola both reportedly missed Monday's training session.
Federico Valverde and young Miguel Gutierrez may be forced to replace defensive positions, while Eder Militao and Nacho should remain at center-backs as Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos continue their recovery.
Asensio and Hazard can certainly hope to start their place after their important goal against Sevilla, and it's no surprise to see Luka Modric rested when Isco comes on.

🔺 Prediction of the composition of players Granada vs Real Madrid:

⭕ Granada: Escandell; Foulquier, Perez, Sanchez, Quini; Eteki, Gonalons; Puertas, Vico, Machis; Suarez

⭕ Real Madrid: Courtois; Valverde, Militao, Nacho, Gutierrez; Casemiro, Kroos, Isco; Asensio, Benzema, Hazard
