Our football match prediction:
Despite producing a fine display in Saturday’s football match against Barcelona at Camp Nou, Granada eventually suffered a 1-0 loss to the title holders on Matchday 10. The rock-bottom side have yet to record a win in the new La Liga campaign and many people believe that Saturday’s game against Deportivo La Coruna will be the turning point for los Granadinos. Lucas Alcaraz’s men, though, have been struggling in front of goal of late and it has to be noted that they scored no more than one goal in previous four league fixtures. Deportivo La Coruna shared the spoils with Valencia on Monday evening and, as a result, they escaped the relegation zone. Anyhow, Granada want this win more and we predict that the relegation-threatened team will record their first win of the season on day 11. It is well known that los Granadinos produce much better performances at home than on the travels.
Highligted Player (Kravets):
Artem Kravets is a towering striker born on 3 June 1989 in Dniprodzerzhynsk, and he is a player who has yet to realise his full potential. Coming through the youth ranks at Dynamo Kiev, the forward never quite managed to nail down a regular starting berth in Ukraine’s most famous club, but he has rather searched for form during loan spells with Arsenal Kiev and Stuttgart. The return of 15 goals in 24 league appearances for Dynamo during the 2014/2015 season saw Kravets eventually get a chance to prove his worth in German Bundesliga, but the loan stint with VFB Stuttgart did not go according to plan. Despite the lack of action on club level, the striker was important member of the Ukraine team that secured their place at the Euro 2016 finals, scoring 3 goals in eight qualifiers, and he has since also profited from Yevhen Seleznyov’s decision to move to Russia that cost him a place in the national team.
