Villarreal have endured a really difficult and unusual campaign so far this season with the Yellow Submarine having used up three managers so far this season with Marcelino appointed during the November international break after both Quique Setien and Pacheta were both sacked earlier on in the campaign.

The home team come into this one on the back of an impressive 3-1 defeat of Real Sociedad at the Anoeta in the Basque Country last weekend with a brace from Santi Comesana and a goal from Alexander Sorloth. They are now unbeaten in their last six matches in La Liga with two victories and four draws.


Granada begin this weekend’s round of fixtures sitting firmly in the bottom three and the relegation places and they are already adrift, looking certain to be relegated down into the second-tier. The Andalusians are being coached by Uruguayan boss Alexander Medina after Paco Lopez was sacked earlier on in the campaign.

They come into this one on the back of not playing last weekend as their clash with Valencia at Mestalla was postponed due to a fire in the city of Valencia. Their most recent outing saw them share a 1-1 draw with winless and bottom-of-the-table Almeria a couple of weeks ago in a regional derby.



Defender Jorge Cuenca is out suspended for this weekend, whilst Ramon Terrats, Juan Foyth and Denis Suarez are all missing due to injury, too.

PREDICTED XI (4-4-2): Jorgensen; Mosquera, Albiol, Bailly, Alberto Moreno; Akhomach, Coquelin, Comesana, Baena; Goncalo Guedes, Gerard Moreno

UNAVAILABLE: Cuenca (Suspended), Terrats (Injured), Foyth (Injured), Suarez (Injured)

QUESTIONABLE: Pedraza (Injured)


Granada have three doubts for this weekend with Bruno Mendez, Jesus Vallejo and Raul Fernandez potentially unavailable, whilst Gerard Gumbau is also out suspended.

PREDICTED XI (4-1-4-1): Batalla; Sanchez, Angel, Miquel, Maouassa; Hongla; Pellistri, Ruiz, Puertas, Melendo; Uzuni

UNAVAILABLE: Gumbau (Suspended)

QUESTIONABLE: Mendez (Injured), Vallejo (Injured), Raul Fernandez (Injured)


As mentioned, it has been a gruelling and underwhelming campaign for Villarreal thus far and they have the added distraction of an upcoming tie against Olympique de Marseille in the first-leg of their UEFA Europa League Round of 16 tie in midweek in the south of France. They could rotate, therefore, for this one but even with a weakened side, they should have more than enough to defeat Granada, especially at El Madrigal.
