Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Estadio Mendizorrotza will host Sunday’s football game between Alaves and Granada. The Basque outfit picked up vital three points from the Elche game, with the team moving one step closer towards securing the survival. Alaves regained a much-needed confidence in midweek, and seeing that Granada have little to play for in the season finale, we believe that home win should be considered. Battaglia returns from suspension, while all Burgui, Cordoba, Ely, and Lopez are out of contention through injuries for the home team.
Los Granadinos, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team extending their losing run to three games against Real Madrid (1-4). Since the Andalusian outfit head into the match with the lack of motivation, we are tempted to put our money on Alaves. Diaz has been tested positive for coronavirus, while all Kenedy, Lozano, Milla, Neva, and Vallejo remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Lucas Perez):
Lucas Perez is a Spanish footballer who plays for Deportivo La Coruna as a striker. Lucas Perez was born in La Coruna on 10 September, 1988 and he started his youth career at Alaves. Between 2007 and 2009 he played for Atletico Madrid C and in 2009 he signed for Rayo Vallecano.
Lucas Perez scored 25 goals in 44 appearances for los Vallecanos, but he played no more than seven matches for the first team. In 2011 he joined Ukrainian side Karpaty Lviv, but two years later he moved to PAOK, where he played 32 league games for the Greek outfit (scoring nine goals).
Lucas made it to the Greek Football Cup final with PAOk in the 2013/2014 season, but Panathinaikos emerged triumphant in the title game. On 12 August, 2015, Lucas signed a four-year deal with his home-town club Deportivo La Coruna and he impressed in the 2015/2016 La Liga campaign, scoring 17 goals for the Galician outfit.
Highlighted Team (Granada):
Granada are an Andalusian football club that plays in Spanish La Liga. The club were founded on 14 April, 1931 and they have yet to win the Primera Division trophy. El Grana, though, booked their place in the Spanish Cup final in 1959, but Barcelona proved to be a big catch for the Andalusian outfit.
Granada host their rivals at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes, the stadium that was built in 1995. The capacity of the stadium is 23,934. Granada’s main rivals are fellow Andalusian team Sevilla, but Real Betis are regarded as the club’s bitter rivals as well.
The likes of Yacine Brahimi, Juan Aguero, Gustavo Benitez, Pahinho, Denis Milar, Julio Montero Castillo, Capi, Cesar and Jose Mingorance are famous players that were part of the Estadio El Sadar outfit in the past. The original colour of Granada’s kits were blue and white, but after the Spanish Civil War the club chiefs bought new ones (red and white).
