Our football match prediction:
Sunday’s football game at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes pits together Granada and Celta Vigo. Granada desperately needed a win against Valencia at the weekend, but they failed to get one. Los Granadinos are on a six-game winless run in La Liga and they are seven points behind the “safe zone” in the standing ahead of the visit of Celta Vigo. The hosts have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at Os Celeste on Matchday 32, but beating the Galician outfit is easier said than done. Eduardo Berizzo’s troops are eager to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Eibar and we predict that the visitors will take the game against Granada very seriously. Celta aim to stay in the race for a place in European competitions and this has to go down as a must-win game for the away team. It has to be noted that Celta are after their fourth consecutive win over Granada in La Liga.
