Real Madrid travel to Granada as Zinedine Zidane looks to get their season back on track.
Still trailing Barcelona and Atletico Madrid in La Liga, Real Madrid will be hoping to improve their away form against Granada as the hosts continue to be embroiled in the relegation zone.
Granada will be banking on the services of Isaac Success and El Arabi in order to earn a favourable result against Real Madrid. Edgar Mendez, Penaranda and Salva Ruiz are expected to be unavailable for the fixture due to injury concerns.
Probable Lineup: Andres Fernandez (GK); Biraghi, Lomba, Babin, Lopes; Ruben Perez, Javi Marquez, Krhin, El Arabi, Isaac Success, Ruben Rochina
Zinedine Zidane doesn’t have any injury concerns apart from Gareth Bale and Pepe who are yet to recover from their respective injuries. James Rodriguez is expected to replace the Welshman in the lineup with Raphael Varane partnering Sergio Ramos in the defence.
Probable Lineup: Navas (GK); Marcelo, Ramos, Varane, Carvajal; Modric, Kroos, Isco, James Rodriguez, Ronaldo; Benzema
- Real Madrid are the leading goal-scoring side in the Spanish La Liga.
- Only Rayo Vallecano have conceded fewer goals than Granada this season.
- Real Madrid have only earned 16 points from 10 away games this season.
Granada 0-3 Real Madrid
Real Madrid should be able to comfortably ease past Granada, despite their poor away form this season. Despite the absence of Gareth Bale, Zinedine Zidane should be able to secure his first win away from home since taking over the reins from Rafael Benitez.
