🗞️ Team News: Granada
There’s just one fitness concern for the Granada gaffer Paco López to contend with from an otherwise complete group of players. Miguel Rubio (Hamstring Injury) is out of contention.
In all likelihood, Nazaríes may well make use of the 4-4-2 formation for this game, beginning the first half with Raúl Fernández, Ricard Sánchez, Erick Cabaco, Ignasi Miquel, Carlos Neva, Antonio Puertas, Yann Bodiger, Sergio Ruiz, Jose Maria Callejon, Jorge Molina and Myrto Uzuni.
📋 Team News: Ponferradina
With a completely healthy group to choose from, the Ponferradina boss David Gallego doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all before this game.
We’re of the thinking that La Ponfe might begin the game with a 4-4-2 formation, starting the game with Amir Abedzadeh, Paris Adot, Soufiane Chakla, José Amo, A. C. Cobacho, Daniel Ojeda, Kelechi Nwakali, Agus Medina, Naim García, Edu Espiau and Derik Lacerda.
It looks to us that Granada will probably dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.
In contrast, Ponferradina could well struggle to score although we do reckon that they could well end up hitting back at some stage here, too.
We’re therefore anticipating a pretty comfortable 3-1 winning score for Granada at full-time.
