It has been an absolutely nightmare-ish season for Granada as they prepare for an immediate return to the second-tier after gaining promotion to La Liga in 2022. They have managed just two victories in their 29 matches this season and are playing this catch-up again sitting 14 points adrift of safety with 27 points to play for.

The Andalusians come into this one on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Cadiz in a regional derby at the weekend with Ruben Navarro scoring a 51st minute winner. Granada have now suffered four successive La Liga defeats and they are winless since defeating the aforementioned Cadiz in the first game of 2024.


Under the management of Ruben Baraja, who took interim charge of the Valencians towards the end of last season, Valencia have significantly overperformed their pre-season expectations after narrowly avoiding the drop on the final day of the campaign last season. They are very much in the hunt for a top seven finish and potential European qualification.

Valencia come into this one on the back of a goalless draw against Real Mallorca at Mestalla at the weekend. Valencia have now managed just one victory in their last six matches. In those six games, Valencia have scored just three goals and they have benefitted from Real Betis also faltering at the wrong time of the season.



Granada have more or less a fully fit and available squad for this weekend but defender Jesus Vallejo is a doubt for the visit of Valencia on Thursday evening.

PREDICTED XI (5-4-1): Batalla; Sanchez, Mendez, Angel, Miquel, Neva; Melendo, Hongla, Ruiz, Villar; Boye


QUESTIONABLE: Vallejo (Injured)


Valencia have four injury issues for this weekend’s trip to Andalusia as Mouctar Diakhaby remains unavailable with a knee injury, whilst Jose Luis Gaya, Sergi Canos and Roman Yaremchuk are out, too.

PREDICTED XI (4-4-2): Mamardashvili; Correia, Mosquera, Ozkacar, Foulquier; Perez, Guillamon, Pepelu, Gonzalez; Duro, Lopez

UNAVAILABLE: Yaremchuk (Injured), Canos (Injured), Diakhaby (Injured), Gaya (Injured)



Granada have been one of the most underwhelming teams this season with their third manager of the campaign, Jose Ramon Sandoval, failing to get much of a tune out of his side after the failed stints of both Paco Lopez and Alexander Medina. Valencia are a reactive and pragmatic side that will be expected to ease their current run of poor form and what better way to do that then against such poor opposition.
