Villarreal vs Granada: Predictions and Betting Tips
Villarreal will come into this match after playing in the European Super Cup against Chelsea, the reigning Champions League winners.
Villarreal were the tenth best-performing home team last season, recording eight wins, six draws and five defeats. Their away form was slightly better.
Villarreal have not lost to Granada since 2014.
Granada finished last season in ninth position, although they might have finished in a higher position were it not for the slog of games that they had to play across La Liga, Copa del Rey, and Europa League tournaments.
The Andalusian side’s signings for the new season include Luis Abram, Carlos Bacca and Monchu. This represents a strengthened team in every facet of the game, except in goal, despite the departure of Rui Silva to Real Betis.
Last season Granada won only four of their 19 away games.
- Three draws, and three defeats for Villarreal in their last six matches of pre-season
- Villarreal have conceded 11 goals in their last six matches of pre-season
- Four wins, one draw, and one defeat for Granada in their last six matches of pre-season
- Granada have conceded at least one goal in five of their last six matches of pre-season
Villarreal vs Granada Predictions
Despite the fact that in pre-season games Villarreal have not won a single match compared to Granada who have won four (mostly against lower level teams), we believe that Villarreal are currently the fifth best team in Spain in terms of squad size, while Granada are a mid-table team. In addition, the match is played at Villarreal’s home ground, which boosts their chances. Therefore, we think Villarreal could win this match.
