On Saturday evening, Real Madrid and Granada go head-to-head at the Santiago Bernabeu as both teams search for potentially vital La Liga points.Real Madrid form guide
Carlo Ancelotti’s team continued their excellent recent form by recording a 4-2 midweek win over Italian champions Napoli in the Champions League.
The victory extended Real Madrid’s winning run to four games in all competitions. Los Blancos are also unbeaten in their last 12 competitive outings, having recorded ten wins and two draws.
Their good form has moved the home side back to the top of La Liga. However, they are only above second-place Girona courtesy of a superior head-to-head record.
The men from Madrid have been highly potent in front of goal of late, scoring at least three goals in their last four outings. Brazilian star Rodrygo has played a vital role in all those recent wins, scoring six goals in the four victories.Granada form guide
The Andalusian's form doesn’t seem to be getting any better, as a 3-1 defeat at Alaves means they are winless in their last 11 La Liga games. The loss was also their fourth in five matches in the Spanish top flight.
Keeping the opposition out has been a major problem for the visitors in La Liga lately, as they have conceded at least two goals in five of their previous seven league outings.
The one slight positive for Granada at the moment is that despite being in 19th place in the table, they are still only three points adrift of 17th place and safety.
However, it seems unlikely they will bridge the gap in this clash, as they have lost seven of their previous eight away games in the Spanish top flight.What am I backing?
There isn’t much value when it comes to team betting. So, instead, the bet I am backing is Rodrygo to be an anytime goalscorer, as the Brazilian international is in a rich vein of form and offers some value in the betting stakes.
