Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes will host Sunday’s Andalusian derby between Granada and Almeria, the two relegation-threatened sides. Los Granadinos are eager to put an end to their five-game winless run and they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Ignasi Miquel serves a one-game ban due to the accumulation of yellow cards, while both Kamil Piatkowski and Gonzalo Villar are back from suspension.
Almeria, on the other hand, have slim survival chances, with the team sitting in the ultimate position with only seven points on their account. As previously mentioned, this seems like a perfect opportunity for Granada to return to winning ways in the national championship. To make things even worse for the away team, Belgium forward Largie Ramazani is out of contention through suspension. Experience forward Leo Baptistao is banned for the match as well.
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).
