Barcelona are back in La Liga action after having their game postponed last week, and they have a lot to prove when they face Granada at Camp Nou. Barca is in seventh place with seven points, three points behind the leaders, while Granada is in 17th place with two points.
Barcelona are coming off a humbling 3-0 Champions League defeat at home to Bayern Munich, and they have a slew of injuries to contend with. Ansu Fati, Sergino Dest, Sergio Aguero, Martin Brathwaite, and Ousmane Dembele have joined Pedri and Jordi Alba in the treatment room.
They haven't kept a clean sheet this season, but they've only failed to score in one of their last 33 league games. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in three of their four matches this season, as well as four of their previous five league games at home.
Granada is on a losing streak, with no wins so far this season and only a point separating them from relegation. In their four games, they have only kept one clean sheet and have conceded seven goals in the last three, while failing to score in two of them.
They've lost six of their nine games, and they've lost three of their four league games away from home. Three of Granada's four away encounters have seen them concede two or more goals.
Three of Granada's four away encounters have seen them concede two or more goals. Even though they are the underdogs in this match, they have won two of their last six meetings with Barcelona. They defeated Barca 2-1 in their most recent meeting and will be trying to repeat the feat here against all odds.
Granada is one of the few teams in La Liga that has yet to win a game this season, and halting them at Camp Nou could be a difficult assignment, especially at a time when Barca is eager to bounce back from a humiliating loss. They did win at Camp Nou last season, but their recent form isn't promising, so I'm going with Barcelona to win in both halves. The match will be played today at 8:00 PM Nigerian and UK time.
