Granada looking to further keep their distance from the danger zone

Granada climbed away from the relegation zone after four undefeated outings (W2, D2). Still, the Nazaries find themselves four points short of the sum of points they had in the past two seasons. Nonetheless, Granada’s recent improvement can be linked to a fine start to their games. To illustrate, the Nazaries scored in the first 30 minutes of three of those four games.

Notably, in the last three meetings with Atletico, there hasn’t been a goal scored before halftime. However, that won’t matter to coach Roberto Moreno rather than to end a winless home streak of ten games against Atletico.  Surely scoring in every single home game this season will raise the Nazaries confidence. Nevertheless, Moreno will be looking for their second clean sheet at the Los Carmenes of the season.

The trip to Granada may be the way back for Atletico

For the first time since 2011, Atletico Madrid suffered three consecutive defeats in La Liga. As a result, the Colchoneros are 14 points adrift of their rivals and league-leaders Real Madrid. Comparatively, at this stage last season, the numbers differ hugely for Atletico. Firstly, this is Diego Simeone’s worst season with the club. Secondly, they had lost just one game and conceded seven goals after 17 games in their championship-winning campaign.

Moreover, Simeone’s once-solid defense that he built his successes on is very soft now. To clarify, Atletico let in at least a goal in the last four games and 20 already this season. In all of last season, they conceded 25! Still, playing Granada may represent the way for Simeone’s men to get back on track. The reason for that is Atletico haven’t conceded more than one goal against Granada since 1975!

Granada vs Atletico Madrid Prediction

Two teams with contradicting forms go head-to-head in this postponed match from round nine. A win is so important for both teams. Granada want to maintain their undefeated run while Atletico need to get back to winning ways as soon as possible.

Hence, we will see a very offensive approach from Diego Simeone and a rather defensive style from Granada. Surely the hosts will rely on counters to break the Atletico defense. 

With odds of 1.61, Atletico are the favorites to win as opposed to Granada’s 6.70. However, with the hosts growing in confidence after their recent run, the three points might not come easily for the Colchoneros. Thus we prefer to back a double chance for this match.

As for the goals market, and checking their recent games, both teams’ last four matches saw two or more goals. Moreover, according to statistics, there is an 89% chance for over 1.5 goals to be scored. Therefore, we will combine the two bets and choose a combo bet from Vbet.
