Our football match prediction:
Granada are eight points behind the safe zone in the La Liga standings ahead of Matchday 21. Los Granadinos are eager to secure yet another elite division survival, but they need to return to winning ways as soon as possible if they are to avoid relegation to Segunda Division. The Andalusians suffered a 2-0 loss to Villarreal at the weekend and they will be looking to put an end to their seven-match winless run in all competitions when they welcome Las Palmas at their Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes in Monday’s football match. Los Amarillos are tough to beat at home, but their performances on the road leave a lot to be desired and seeing that Granada defeated Las Palmas on the last day of the 2015/2016 La Liga campaign, we predict that the hosts will pick up all three points from the match. You should have in mind that los Amarillos are on an eight-game winless run on the road.
