View all Granada v Alaves tips, stats and our pre-match poll below (including the best match odds).
Granada, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following a 0-4 Europa League Qualifiers success vs Teuta Durrës.
Granada haven’t had any problems with scoring, finding the back of the net in one hundred percent of their last 6 matches.
They’ve totted up the amount of 16 during that period while seeing the number of goals scored against them stand at 5. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily follow through into this game, of course.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Granada:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Alaves in their previous 3 games.
- are undefeated in their previous 2 home league matches.
Since suffering a loss in their previous game against Real Betis in La Liga action, Alaves will be aiming to make amends here.
In that match, Alaves had 41% possession and 7 shots on goal with 2 on target. At the other end, Real Betis had 11 shots at goal with 4 on target. Tello (94') was the scorer for Real Betis.
The trend of at least one team not scoring a goal in games involving Alaves has been noticeable in recent matches. Examining their last 6 meetings reveals that it has happened 5 times. In those clashes, their opponents have managed a goal tally of 10 while Babazorros have scored 2.
Head to head

Team News: Granada
There is just one fitness concern for the Granada boss Diego Martínez to be concerned with due to a largely intact group of players. Dimitri Foulquier (Muscle Injury) misses out.
Team News: Alaves
Owing to a completely injury-free group available to choose from, Alaves boss Pablo Machín doesn’t have any fitness concerns to report before this match.
We’re inclined to think that Alaves will have to perform well to hit the back of the net against this Granada team who we think will be able to grind out a win.
Therefore, we predict a good tussle with a 1-0 advantage for Granada when the referee blows for full-time.
Hoping for a good game.
