With most of the Spanish La Liga enjoying the midweek break, Granada will host Valencia to play the 26th round, when the match between the two was cancelled due to the large-scale fire. Both teams find themselves in the opposite parts of the standings, with Granada placed in the 19th place with 14 points, while Valencia enjoys its 8th place with 41 points. Valencia enjoys an advantage in recent head to head matches, not losing for four consecutive clashes, and comes to Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes with a certain ambition.

Granada vs Valencia Preview 

Granada Preview

Granada will almost certainly be relegated from the La Liga, given its current place and the fact that the gap from the 17th spot is already 14 points. With the weak game that the team shows, it is almost impossible to save themselves and Granada will most likely begin the season in the second division. It may be another success story as under Diego Martinez Penas, who also started in Segunda with the team, set their record by playing in the Europa League playoffs. Granada is on the streak of 4 consecutive losses and while losing to Villareal can be considered as acceptable, the lost match against Cadiz (1-0), who is also in the relegation zone, clearly showed all the problems. It is also worth noting that the last win of the team was recorded in the beginning of January, 10 games ago.

Valencia Preview 

In an attempt to finish the season as positively as possible, Valencia reunited with Ruben Baraja, the midfielder of their golden period at the beginning of the century, last winter. At that time, Gennaro Gattuso had almost brought the club to the brink, and first it was necessary to pull the team out of the relegation zone. Having coped with this, Baraja brought the team back from the bottom of the table to the fight for the European competitions next season. Given not very stable results recently - draw 0-0 with Mallorca, loss to Villarreal 1-0, win over Getafe 1-0 - these tasks seem to be problematic, but at least the team has something to fight for.

Betting Tips for Granada vs Valencia

Valencia Draw No Bet

Despite Valencia's poor form in away games and lack of stability in general, the team at least knows what they are doing on the pitch. Granada is obviously lacking the morale and capabilities, eagerly waiting for the end of the season. Unibet gives 1.58 for this Granada vs Valencia prediction.

Total Goals Under 2.5

When looking at the last Valencia matches, it becomes clear that the team has certain problems with scoring goals. At the same time, it does not allow much room for manoeuvre for the opponents as well - this resulted in the fact that only two matches out of the last nine saw more than two goals. Granada, in its poor state of mind, will likely choose to close near its net, a scenario that does not promise a lot of goals. Granada vs Valencia odds for this outcome, as defined by Unibet, are 1.63.

Total Corners Under 9.5 

The amorphous game of Granada and feverish state of Valencia results in the low attacking statistics and, consequently, corners. Valencia, after the coming of Baraja, served a very low number of corners, and the team’s last 9 consecutive matches ended with less than 10 corners. In general, head to head matches between the two do not have a lot of corners, with 6 out of 7 last matches having less than 10 corners. Unibet gives 1.55 for this Granada vs Valencia tip.
