Granada finished 16th at the end of the 2015-16 season, avoiding relegation (while teams Rayo Vallecano, Getafe and Levante were cast down to the Segunda Division.) It seems like Nazaries will soon join them, if they don’t shape up soon. They were demolished by Atletico Madrid on Oct. 15, according to Bleacher Report, losing 7-1. They have yet to win a single La Liga game in nine attempts, and since they’re facing against one of the most stacked rosters of talents, it looks like it’ll become a perfect -10.
Though this game is expected to be a blowout, it’s not all good news for Barca. They’ve been hit with some injuries, as Jeremy Mathieu, 32, Gerard Pique, 29, Andres Iniesta, 32, Jordi Alba, 27, and more will sit out this game. Mathieu is out of action for three weeks due to a calf injury, per the International Business Times, which means he’ll miss the Champions League rematch between Barca and Manchester City.
To make up for all the players riding the bench, coach Luis Enrique, 46, practiced with Marlon, 21, Nili, 22, and Alex Carbonell, 19. These second team rookies may get a chance to play with the main squad. After all, when playing against the dead-last Granada, why not let some youthful talent get some on-field experience?
Of course, overconfidence could lead to Barca’s downfall and they can’t afford it. Though they’ve been riding high on success, they’re still three spaces behind Real Madrid in La Liga. The last thing they want is for an upset to push them even further back from first place. Though, that’s not likely happening.
It could, though. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Will Barca completely destroy Granada? Or will El Grana pull off a miracle at Camp Nou?
