Bet365 tips forecasts Saturday La Liga clash between Granada and Atletico Madrid, including predictions, preview and possible lineups.
La Liga action on Saturday starts with Atletico Madridclash with eighth placed Grenade at the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes.
Atleti, who still lost just one game in the league this season, will try to return to winning ways after drawing 2-2 with Celta de Vigo.
For a team that prides itself on its mechanical consistency and ability to narrowly win, there was a sense of unease in the capital when Diego simeoneThe men were unable to get rid of Galician clothing the last time.
Of course, thanks to a striker key Luis Suarez, Los Colchoneros was unlucky not to take the three points of the tie, with Atleti only undone by an 89-minute shot. Facundo Ferreyra.
Despite the stalemate, there was much praise for Suarez, with the Uruguayan veteran scoring his 16th goal of the season and fifth two goals.
Speaking to the press, the 34-year-old said: “[Simeone] is one of those coaches that convinces you by desire and positivity and by everything you know about it. I trust the coach’s conviction when I talk to you more than the style of play he has. “
However, there is a high chance that Simeone’s positivity suffered a blow after it was revealed that another group of Aleti players was forced to isolate due to COVID-19. A total of five players from the first team will not be available for this round.
After a solid start to the campaign, Granada has been very hot and cold for the past few weeks.
Diego martinezThe team, who face Napoli in the first leg of the Europa League clash next week, have not won a game in four league games and look desperate to overcome their fall in form.
However, defeating Atleti may be a step too far for Granada, who have failed to win any of the last 20 league games against Los Colchoneros and have failed to score in 13 of them.
Against the Levante last time, the Andalusians only managed to leave home with a point thanks to a draw in extra time. Roberto Soldado.
If the 35-year-old poacher starts on Saturday, the game may well be decided by the efforts of Soldado or Suarez, two attackers who are enjoying the twilight of their careers.
