FC Barcelona vs Granada: Predictions and Betting Tips
After losing 0-3 to Bayern Munchen on the first day of the Champions League, Barça will be looking for a win in La Liga, where they have two wins and a draw (having played one game less than the rest of the teams due to the postponed match against Sevilla).
The other bad news for Barça is that two very important players, Jordi Alba and Pedri, are injured. Both are expected to be unavailable for the next three weeks or so.
Barcelona have now played three games in a row with fewer shots on goal than their opponents, an astonishing statistic given that they have been the highest scoring team in La Liga over the last decade, and the team with the most shots on goal. Obviously this drop is due to the absence of Leo Messi.

A match against Barcelona is difficult for any team, but for Granada, who are in really poor form at the moment, it could not come at a worse time. The Andalusian team are currently seventeenth with two draws and two defeats.
Granada need to remember that only a few months ago they were able to beat them, again at Camp Nou, 2-1. Also, Barça are not in their best form either.
- Three wins, one draw, and one defeat for Barcelona in their last five games
- Four consecutive matches conceding goals for Barcelona
- Four consecutive matches without winning for Granada, comprising two draws and two defeats
- Granada have conceded seven goals in their last three matches
FC Barcelona vs Granada Predictions
Playing at home and against an opponent significantly inferior to them, we think that Barça has enough in their favour to win this game. However we do not expect it to be an easy victory, firstly because of their struggles in recent games, and secondly because some of their important players will be absent through injury.
