Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos will host Sunday’s Andalusian derby between Almeria and Granada. Almeria aim to recover from a heavy 5-1 loss to Sevilla and they are surely capable of matching los Granadinos in front of home fans. Both Lucas Robertone and Martin Svidersky are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team. Marc Pubill faces race against the clock to be fit for the local derby.
Granada, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with fellow Andalusian side Real Betis on Thursday evening, with the team putting an end to their three-game losing run in Primera Division. Almeria and Granada seem to be evenly matched at the moment and, taking everything into account, the share of spoils is on the horizon. Defender Jesus Vallejo remains in the recovery room, while forward Myrto Uzuni is a major doubt after limping off with injury in the midweek clash.
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).
